Which Lawn Weed Control Products Are Right For You?

Which Weed Control Product is Right for You?Weeds pop up in all kinds of places. Sometimes, it's tough enough to figure out what kinds of weeds you're dealing with, but then comes the harder decision: Which weed control product will get rid of those particular weeds?

Take the guesswork out of weed control with our easy-to-use guide to weedy situations – and how best to solve them.

Situation: Growing a weed-free lawn
I've worked hard to grow a healthy, weed-free lawn. What can I spray to keep weeds out?

Solution: Season Long Weed Control for Lawns
It may seem like magic, but this product kills any broadleaf weeds that have invaded your turf and also prevents some from sprouting for up to 6 months. It works on non-grassy weeds like Clover, Dandelion and Wood Sorrel. Read the label to make sure your weeds are listed.

Situation: Mulch around trees and shrubs
Is there something I can spray on mulch around my established trees and shrubs to keep weeds from growing?

Solution: DuraZone® Weed & Grass Killer
First, this product kills weeds and grass in mulched areas, especially in those hard-to-weed spots beneath shrubs. Second, it forms a barrier that prevents weeds for up to 6 months. Follow label instructions to avoid harming nearby plants when you spray.

Situation: Poison Oak and Poison Ivy
What can I use to kill Poison Oak and Poison Ivy?

Solution: Brush Killer Plus
This is an easy, affordable solution to control difficult and potentially harmful weeds. It kills these poisonous plants at the roots.

Situation: Moss in the lawn
We have moss growing in a shady area of the lawn. How can we kill it?

Solution: 2-In-1 Moss & Algae Killer. This product is fast-acting, quickly killing moss, algae and lichens wherever it grows, but it doesn't prevent the problem. Moss typically grows where soil doesn't drain well or there's encroaching shade. Have you aerated your lawn? That can help improve this situation. Consider trimming overhanging trees to let more light reach grass. Read more about growing grass in the shade.

Situation: Space beneath deck and along foundation
Weeds keep invading the gravel under our deck. Is there something we can spray to kill the weeds — and keep them from coming back?

Solution: DuraZone® Weed & Grass Killer
This kills existing weeds and creates a barrier that prevents new plants from emerging for up to 6 months. It's perfect for areas like gravel driveways, footpaths, foundation zones or that no man's land under the deck where you don't want to have to pull weeds.

Situation: Crabgrass and lawn weeds
Crabgrass has appeared in the lawn, along with a small crop of other weeds, which I don't want to hand pull. What can I use?

Solution: All-In-One Lawn Weed & Crabgrass Killer
This spray-on weed killer doesn't harm lawns but kills weeds and Crabgrass down to the roots. The ready-to-use formulation is a good choice for spot treatment of the occasional lawn weed. If you haven’t fertilized yet, try 5 In 1 Weed & Feed. It kills tough broadleaf weeds, prevents new broadleaf weeds, kills large crabgrass, prevents new crabgrass, and greens for up to 3 months, all in one step.
