If you want a perfect lawn that you can walk on without all the painful Bindii prickles, then you need to spray now to clean up for spring.

Winter is a time when many nuisance weeds and prickles seem to invade our home turf, causing much pain and frustration. One such major nuisance weed is the Bindii.

If you have ever walked on a bindii and felt the sharp pain they cause, this is actually the seed that has the prickles. Bindies grow in the winter and set seed late winter to early spring.

The trick to stopping Bindies from spreading is to spray them in winter as soon as you see them, before the prickles develop, and continue to repeat spray every 3 weeks until they are all gone. Repeat spraying is important as this will control weeds that have germinated after the prior spraying.

One great new weed killer which kills Bindies as well as many other weeds is Searles Lawn Perfect®.

Searles Lawn Perfect® is a powerful new spray containing 3 herbicides, that effectively knock out Bindies, Dandelions, Clover and many other lawn weeds. Searles Lawn Perfect® is suitable to spray on many types of lawns including Couch, Qld Blue Couch, Carpet, Kikuyu, Fescue & Saltene whether on newly sown lawn or established lawn.

When spraying weeds, for greater success add a wetting agent, such as Searles Spredmax®. Searles Spredmax® helps the spray to stick to the weeds, giving far better knockdown of weeds.
So remember, for a perfect lawn this year:

• Spray with Searles Lawn Perfect® every 2-3 weeks
• And Don’t forget, add Searles Spredmax®
If you do this every 2-3 weeks, you’ll enjoy a beautiful lawn without the worry of weeds and prickles.

Happy Gardening with Searles from the Searle family.
