Bindii Blues? Lumpy's Nursery Has the Cure! (Open 7 Days a Week!)

Those pesky bindii! They might be small, but their prickly presence can put a real damper on your outdoor fun. Here at Lumpy's Nursery & Landscape Yard (open 7 days a week! Mon-Fri 8-4, Sat 8-3, Sun 10-2. Call us on 02 6557 6558!), we understand the struggle. That's why we offer a range of solutions to help you reclaim your lawn.

A Bindii Brief: The Annoying Asterisk of Aussie Lawns

Bindii (Asteraceae astrocarboxus) is a native Australian plant, but that doesn't mean we have to welcome it into our meticulously manicured lawns. These low-growing weeds love our warm climate and thrive in compacted soil.

The real trouble starts when they set seed. Those tiny, burrowing prickles become a nightmare for bare feet and pets. And here's the kicker: once they've seeded, controlling them becomes much harder.

Taking Back Your Lawn: Bindii Battling at Lumpy's

At Lumpy's, we have a three-pronged attack on bindii:

  • David Gray's DART Herbicide: This selective herbicide targets bindii and other broadleaf weeds while leaving your desired grasses unharmed. Ask our qualified staff for more information on how to use it safely and effectively.
  • Searles LawnWeeder: This is another selective option that controls a variety of lawn weeds, including bindii. Just like DART, be sure to follow the instructions carefully to avoid harming your lawn.
  • Searles Bin-Die Concentrate: This powerful option tackles bindii specifically. But be warned! This product is not suitable for buffalo grass. Our friendly horticulturists can advise you on the best option for your lawn type.

Remember: Prevention is always better than cure. Aerating your lawn regularly and maintaining a healthy balance of nutrients can help prevent bindii from taking hold in the first place.

Don't suffer the bindii blues any longer! Head down to Lumpy's Nursery & Landscape Yard. Our qualified staff are here 7 days a week to ensure you get the right product for your lawn and a weed-free future!
