DID THE WEEDS WIN IN YOUR YARD?

The Family Handyman - - HOME SMARTS -

If weeds have taken over your lawn, spot treat­ment just isn’t prac­ti­cal. Use a dial sprayer at­tached to your gar­den hose and add con­cen­trated broadleaf killer to the pot. Set the dial at the top to the ra­tio called for on the her­bi­cide con­tainer.

Hook up the gar­den hose and ap­ply an even treat­ment to the weedy ar­eas. Be sure to clear the yard of any­thing that can get con­tam­i­nated by over­spray. And pro­tect your flow­ers and bushes with plas­tic sheet­ing or card­board. Broadleaf killers will kill or harm any­thing with leaves— in­clud­ing your flower bed.
