Controlling Weeds
In the Lawn


Dandelion Digger

Though the most labour intensive, this is the most effective way to control dandelions in the lawn and garden. The strong, pronged blade will pull weeds out of the most compacted soil.


Spot Treatment

Products such as Killex, Weed Out and Chickweed, Clover and Thistle Killer are all effective products that can be sprayed directly on weeds in the lawn. Note these products will kill any broadleaf weeds or plants they touch, so take care never to spray on windy days, nor near existing shrubs or perennials.



Weed B Gone

The active ingredient in this herbicide is iron, making it an eco friendly alternative to Killex etc.


Corn Gluten

Those dandelions we’re seeing right now will soon go to seed, and those little seedlings will become more pesky dandelions in your lawn. To prevent any of those dandelion seeds from germinating in your lawn, apply corn gluten granular fertilizer to your lawn. This can be applied by hand or by a lawn fertilizer spreader. The corn gluten not only provides the nutrient nitrogen to your lawn but also acts as a seed inhibitor, so any dandelion seeds on the lawn will not be able to germinate.

NOTE: IF YOU HAVE OVERSEEDED YOUR LAWN RECENTLY OR PLAN TO OVERSEED SOON you cannot use corn gluten as this will prevent any grass seed from germinating.

SmartOnes Sprayer

This long handles device uses cartridges filled with insecticide or herbicide. The cartridges can be placed in and out without cross contamination – no rinsing in between! Target the weed under the dome and simply push to spray; no bending or mixing required.


In the Garden

Hand pulling and using a dandelion digger are indeed the most effective ways to control weeds in your garden. There are however certain ways to pull!

To ensure you get the entire taproot of dandelions, use a digger tool. For small seedlings such as chickweed, the Garden Bandit weeding tool is amazing; its sharp blade skims across the soil surface to quickly uproot small seedlings, and it’s compact size makes it great for weeding between perennials and shrubs.


In the Patio and on the Driveway

Green Earth Weed and Grass Killer is a non-chemical herbicide that works to kill top growth (not roots) on existing weeds in patios, on driveways. Round Up and Wipe Out are non-selective chemical herbicides that will work to kill both top growth and roots of weeds in patios and driveways.
