The only thing it has killed so far is the buffalo lawn.
I have a 3/4 Acre block with a mixutre of different grass families gowing in it. The target area had clover growing though the buffalo lawn. I sprayed the mixutre 5 days ago exactly following the instructions, and as of today the only thing dying in the areas of application is the beautiful buffalo grass! All turning yellow and starting to fade away. The clover is shining through now and i am faced with the possibility of digging the entire area up and starting again, 500m2 + mind you not exactly a cheap exercise.
I had a number of people tell me not to use it but chose to believe the product advertisement instead. Lesson well learned.
Kills weeds, but
The container I bought leaked profusely. The cap on the front that is supposed to stop the mixture until you are ready just blew open. Everytime. (No, I didn't apply a huge amount of water pressure, even though the label indicates "moderate to high.")
Plus, it leaked significantly out the back where the hose connects. (No, my connector worked fine on other connections.)
It kills weeds, but I would not buy it again due to the difficulty of applying it.
Purchased in February 2020 at Bunnings for A$18.98.
Effective for certain weeds.
Used this on my weed-ridden lawn recently.
Very effective against pennywort, bindii and dandelion.
Clover took several applications to eradicate, but ineffective against richardia.
Also expensive and no shut off valve makes using it somewhat cumbersome.
Purchased in May 2019 at Bunnings for A$24.74.
Does not acchive any results
I sprayed my lawns twice with the appliccation it said on the box but very little happened, the clovers leaves went a little brown but did not kill the clover at all. Very dissapointing. But there is little that will work with buffalo but this one was not worth the time.
Questions & Answers
What are the implications of using this on a buffalo lawn which is then exposed to temps 1 or 2 degrees over 30
Hello , I have sprayed my lawn with buffalo pro , my lawn is approx 200 sq m. I covered all the area but the container is still three quarters full , have I not sprayed correctly ? thank you
Hi Susan I’m no expert as such but I also used Yates buffalo pro weed killer in my back yard and it takes awhile to use up the container full , my advise is to stay at it until you use about half, and then wait for a week or so then give it another go. Also in my review I might have made a mistake writing it as the product I used was not spray on already mixed but concentrate that you mix yourself and this will work much faster if you have plenty of weeds like I do.
