Lawn Care At Its Best

We all strive for a perfect lawn – weed, insect and disease free. Makhro Lawn Protector is a unique product with multiple active ingredients (bifenthrin, bupirimate and propiconazole) that allows you to treat your lawn for insects and fungi simultaneously. In lawn maintenance, differentiating between insect and fungi damage is tricky, but with Makhro Lawn Protector, trial and error is eliminated.

It is much simpler with Makhro Lawn Protector, the all-in-one solution – 40 ml to 10 litres of water per 10m2.

For those unwanted pesky broadleaf weeds that can quickly take over a beautiful lawn, use Makhro’s Super Lawnweeder. This is a multiple-active, broad-spectrum, selective broadleaf weed killer that will take care of this. Super Lawnweeder contains three active ingredients (dicamba, 2,4D and MCPA) that will help you control most, if not all, broadleaf weeds on your lawn.

Just when you think that you have won the battle, remember to get rid of those weed seeds waiting patiently to germinate. A unique product called Lawntyl will control these seeds and winter grass simultaneously. Lawntyl, with its dual actives, will control broadleaf weeds and winter grass and serve as a pre-emergent to your lawn seed bank. It is a pre-and post-emergent herbicide with ingredients (terbuthylazine and simazine). Control those unwanted weeds before they emerge from the soil, which can only be used on Kikuyu, buffalo and quick grass.  It must be washed into the soil the following day to manage the seed control.  If not washed into the soil within 24 hours, you would only get to control the weeds that are already growing.

It is also very important to use the right feeding to promote growth.  A good feeding would be 1 for All 13.3.8 with macro and micro trace elements with negligible chlorine levels and water-soluble for quick results with very little water.

Following our recommendations, you can make your neighbours jealous by finally having that perfectly green lawn!
