Anyone who has sunk their toes into cool grass on a summer’s day knows the value of a lawn. As well as its luscious feel under bare feet, it’s a stage on which family memories are made, from wobbly first bike rides to backyard soccer and barbecues with friends.
Mowing and watering your lawn is basic lawn care, but optimising your green space means giving it nitrogen and iron, the key nutrients it needs, plus waging war on weeds, such as bindii, clover, dandelion and thistles. Enter Yates Weed ‘n’ Feed®, the fuss-free combination solution.
Start by working out what type of lawn you have. Yates Weed ‘n’ Feed® is designed to bring out the best in common lawn types, including couch and kikuyu lawn. If you have buffalo turf, choose Yates Buffalo Pro® Weed ‘n’ Feed™, which is specially formulated for buffalo. It can be used on all turf types, so if you’re not sure which variety you’re dealing with, go for Buffalo Pro®.
Applying Yates Weed ‘n’ Feed® couldn’t be easier. There are two options. The ready-to-use hose-on pack is ideal for large areas of lawn. The bottle clicks onto your hose and includes a handy on/off switch to help prevent waste and save water. Or there’s the granular type, which you scatter across your lawn like seed, then water in after two days – it gives you more control, ideal for treating patches of weeds, and is a handy solution for small lawns or areas that aren’t accessible with the hose.
Yates’ dual-action products let you spend less time worrying about your lawn and more time enjoying it. Store products out of reach of children and pets, and always follow the instructions.
