Organic Weed Management

Post by BakerGreenLawnMaker » Tue Aug 13, 2019 11:23 am

Are there any organic weed killers out there? I’m not too keen on using 2,4-D or Glyphosate. Any suggestions?

There are iron based selective herbicides, but I think the list of weeds they control is pretty short.
This is the label - it doesn't claim to kill any of the weeds I have right now, so haven't tried it. https://www.natria.com/sites/natria/fil ... 5d0951.pdf

The iron based herbicides are only really effective against dandelions.

I know it's cliche and said all the time, but tall dense grass is the best organic weed control.

How can I get tall dense grass if my lawn is more than 50% weeds?

I would recommend non-organic control for 1 year while pounding the N. Then, switch back after. I also wouldn't recommend maintaining bermuda tall. It tends to be all leggy/stemmy with little green.
