Autumn Yard Jobs

February 29th, 2016|

Watch out for weeds like bindii, clover and flat weeds as they tend to invade lawns as the weather cools. The recent rains will mean that your garden and lawns are ready to go crazy as soon as the sun returns. The transfer of weed seeds via overland water will mean that not only your plants will shoot, but so will the weeds. Weeding by hand while they are small and manageable (and the soil is soft) is the best plan. Otherwise, wait for a break in the weather and treat with selective weed killers.
