Re: how to the weeds for sir water buffallo turf

Hello @nigelclaw


Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. Thank you for joining us and sharing your question about weeds in your turf.


Looking at the photo you've posted, it looks like the turf has been overrun with weeds. I suggest using Yates 4L BuffaloPro Hose On Lawn Weed Killer. It selectively kills the most common broadleaf weeds in lawns, including bindii, clover, dandelions, and thistles. It is safe to use on established Buffalo turf. Please do not mow or fertilize your turf for a minimum of 7 days. You will have to manually remove all the weeds to allow the Buffalo turf to grow again.


However, if you wish to lay down new turf, I suggest reading this discussion: Whole lawn is weed. My colleague @MitchellMc has listed down the steps you need to take to prepare your area for re-seeding or re-turfing.


Here is a handy link: How to treat common lawn weeds
