Medium_ac6c04cf-16b3-497c-a108-33befac8846b I have 2 weeds overtaking my buffalo. Is the left one paspalum? I don’t know the right or how to rid

I think the to or left hand side weed is paspalum and is quite robust. I can hand weed as its stem is quite solid. The other smaller weed is very fibourous and i don’t know what it is or how to treat it. Can you confirm what the attached weeds are and how to get rid of them from my Matilda buffalo lawn?

Answer: Hi Adam,

Apologies for the delay in getting back to you. We received a huge amount of queries over the Christmas break that we’re slowly working our way through. We appreciate your patience!

The first weed does look like paspalum so I think you’re right there. The second weed looks like summergrass, however it’s a bit difficult to tell without seeing some seed heads. Either way, they’re two challenging weeds to have in a buffalo lawn.

There are a few options to get these weeds under control. There’s hand digging them out if you have time. Or if you are very careful, you can paint the leaves of the weeds with some Yates Zero. It’s important not to get any zero onto the buffalo, as the product will kill any plant it touches.

Hope you can get your weeds under control soon.

Angie
