Oxafert

A revolutionary and unique domestic product that acts as a PRE-EMERGENT herbicide and a fertiliser.

Applied correctly, the pre-emergent herbicide component will kill stubborn annual weeds before they appear. The fertiliser component will provide the necessary nutrients to keep your lawn looking greener and healthier all year-round.

The idea of using a pre-emergent herbicide is to target weed seeds before they take hold. It does this by forming a barrier at soil level that affects the germination of any new seedlings. The new combination fertiliser and pre-emergent product provides an ideal mechanism to take the herbicide to just under the soil. The fertiliser also helps give a quick boost to your lawn.

Controlling both broadleaf and annual grass-type weeds, the pre-emergent herbicide works by stopping any new seedlings in their tracks. However it won’t inhibit any root growth of your established turf. The herbicide’s active ingredient has a residual effect for around three months. This makes it ideal to apply seasonally to coincide with the different weed types throughout the year.

It’s a lawn care practice that will take some time to get used to. There won’t be any results in applying it to already weedy lawns. It will only prevent any new ones from forming. So, it’s a ‘use beforehand’ type of remedy. If you have a lawn full of weeds now try to use a control now to get them under control. Then, look at applying the pre-emergent on a regular basis to keep them under control.

Keep in mind that keeping a lawn in good condition through regular maintenance and fertilisation will help keep weeds at bay. This is a better option than trying to control weeds by spraying all the time.
