After a year of digging weeds out of my yard all day everyday, I figured out that if I want my yard to have that thick, lush carpet look, only the best weed killers for lawns will cut it. But, if you're cautious of putting chemicals on your grass, there are a few things to know before you buy.
First, be sure to look for a high-quality herbicide that targets specific areas of your lawn. If you go with a liquid weed killer, you'll have the easiest experience when you buy one that comes with its own spray hose and nozzle for added accuracy. It's even better if the formula you choose absorbs into the soil within a couple of hours to prevent it from spreading.
Generally, you'll find two types of weed killers out there: Those that kill weeds that have already grown and pre-emergence weed killers that prevent weeds from growing even before they sprout. Consider which one is best for you and your lawn (or find one that can do both, for more versatility).
Lawn care can be tough to master, but I've got you. Here's a round-up of some of the best weed killers on the market to help make it simple.
