Why You'll Love Yates' Range of Garden Weed Control Products
Looking after your garden takes time and effort, so when weeds start to grow, you need quick and easy solutions to get rid of them. Weeds can steal nutrients from plants, harbour pests and diseases, and spoil the look of a well-tended garden. Yates’ wide range of products are designed to help with everything from general weed control in your garden to getting rid of tougher weeds and preventing regrowth on tree stumps – all with minimal effort.
How to Prevent Weeds
Preventing weeds from growing in the first place can make your life easier in the long run. Improve drainage, let in as much sunlight as possible, and prune overcrowded branches and any overhanging growth from neighbouring plants to improve air circulation, and reduce the growth of Moss, Algae and Lichen. Broadleaf weeds such as White Clover and Oxalis should be treated as soon as you notice them, to stop them spreading.
Which Weed Control Product to Use
However much you try to prevent weeds from growing in the first place, they are highly adaptable and sometimes you need a little extra help to get rid of them quickly and efficiently. Yates has a weed control option for nearly every garden and plant type.
For general garden weed control, Yates Zero Weedkiller gives non-selective control of all grasses and broadleaf weeds. Effective and economical, it’s a great easy way to kill weeds quickly.
Yates Easy See Spray Dye is designed to make your job even easier. Mix with weedkiller sprays to reduce the risk of over-application or missing untreated areas. It leaves a blue dye, so you can see where you’ve sprayed – which will eventually fade naturally in the days following application.
For organic and natural weed control, Yates Nature's Way Organic Weedspray is an organic weed killer certified for use in organic gardens and is designed to control a wide range of common weeds and grasses including Dandelion, Clover, broadleaf weeds, Algae and Moss.
Path weeds can look seriously unsightly, and be tricky to get rid of effectively, which is why Yates has a range of products specially designed to deal with path weed control and prevention. Yates Pathweeder range contains an advanced formula that combines systemic residual herbicides to both kill existing weeds and provide long-lasting prevention against new weeds germinating for up to 12 months. Available as a concentrate or a ready-to-use format.
Some weeds are tougher than others to get rid of. Yates Ultra Tough Heavy Duty Weedkiller is designed to kill tough weeds – and their roots – such as Bamboo, Onion Weed, Blackberry and Lantana. Yates Tree and Blackberry Killer is ideal for killing tree stumps and other tricky-to-remove woody weeds.
