Most people know the difference between weeds and grass, but not all know the best way to deal with them. That is of course to out-compete them with grass then hand weeding any returning unwanted vegetation. Most weeds are easily identifiable by experts or by a little research on the Internet but sometimes a weed crops up that stumps us. These are usually not turf weeds but have found favourable conditions in a lawn.
One weed to look out for is “Mind Your Own Business” or Soleiroliasoleirolii. If this takes hold it can very difficult to retrieve your lawn. The best thing to do is use a total herbicide, kill everything, scrape the surface of the soil and re-seed or re-turf.
