    Hi all,

    I am not overly concerned about having perfect green grass, but currently my garden is being over-run by a particularly enthusiastic set of weeds (one looks quite like purple deadnettle).

    Is there a pet-friendly treatment that can help the grass and push back the weeds?

    Thanks,
    TFT

    Two,
    I use Weedol.
    Apply to lawn once a year as a liquid.
    Keep kids/pets off lawn for a day or so.
    Seems to keep most of weeds and dasies away for whole year.
    Can definately see the diffrence compared to next doors garden.
    Note that it does not kill (or even slightly improve) the moss in the lawn, so my lawn still has a lot of moss in it that I tend to rake out.

    And here is application and pet advice- do not let pets on whilst it is still wet:

    Thanks - will take a look - I could probably work something around with fencing to keep the dog off one side of the lawn one day, and off the other the next. Not so worried about daisies, but the grass is currently losing out to other weeds at a fair degree...

    Moss is one of the few problems I don't have! (yet)
