How Do I Get Rid of Thistles In My Lawn
We have a lot of thistles growing in our lawn. What is the best way to get rid of them?
Answer from a Zamzows Lawn Expert
Thanks for the question. Getting rid of thistle is not an easy task. It will require perseverance on your part, and a great weed killer. You will need two products to get rid of the thistle in your lawn. The first product is Zamzows Ultra Weed Control for Lawns. It is a great "selective" (meaning it will not kill the lawn, only the weeds), weed killer that works at temperatures above 45 degrees. The second product is a spreader sticker called StayPut. This product "supercharges" the weed killer and increases it's effectiveness 30%. Without using StayPut, your chances of eradicating the thistle will dramatically decrease.
Pick a nice sunny day, and apply these products, and you will see the thistle slowly die off. You may have to reapply, even a few times to get total control, but if you use these products, your thistle will go away eventually.
