Which weed control should be used?

In determining which weed control to use, first determine which weeds you have.   A weed is a plant growing where it is not wanted and usually in competition with desired plants.

Broadlead and Grass - two Categories

All weeds fall into two categories:

  • Broadleaf weeds-

    • take a leaf and turn it over.  If there is a main vein and veins branching off the main vein it is a broadleaf weed, i.e. dandelion.

  • Grassy weeds –

    • if all the veins are parallel then it’s a grassy weed.

Looking at the retail shelf weed controls are classified the same way.  Some control broadleaf weeds, some grassy weeds and others all weeds.

Bonide KleenUP® weed and grass killer is a tough, fast acting water-based weed control that kills all plants and their roots.
