We have a lot of thistles growing in our lawn. What is the best way to get rid of them?
Answer from 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.
