This stuff sprays easily
After neighbours recommended this product to kill bindiis I gave the liquid hose-on version a go. It’s too early to tell if it works, but neighbours with the same bindi problem swear by it. I see people have posted negative reviews about the spray nozzle not working. Well I can report that the spray nozzle works a treat and consistently creates a strong and even spray that’s dead easy to apply, despite my water pressure being average. I applied 13 x 4L bottles of the stuff which all sprayed consistently and no problems. My garden is huge - not a suburban block. Now to sit back and see if it works!
I'd give it zero if I could
Spray attachments and I used 3 different. Water sprays everywhere and no product is expelled.
Rubbish. Don't waste your money on Yates product.
Thousands of litres of wasted water.
More words needed. Don't buy it
Purchased in March 2019 at Bunnings for $15.00.
Took care of all broadleaf weeds and clover in my lawn. Definitely use it again, made a difference to the colour of the lawn as well. My neighbours have used it since seeing the results in my lawn so I am very happy with the results. application is easy by attaching it to your garden hose.
instructions on label be helpful
Reading through all the troubles people had with it spraying everywhere when u connect your hose to it, I was in the same boat! Always thought these spray connectors were stuffed, until I read a reply by Yates that mentioned the top flat plate to be removed. I never knew that had to be removed to use.....hence always spraying water everywhere when I connected it. Soon as I popped off the top plate with a knife it worked perfect and spayed out all the product. This is not mentioned on the label at all. Now I know what to do there’s no more going off my head and blaming the product. To save many more people the same fate, I suggest you add that as an instruction cos most people think you just connect the hose and away you go.
Trying to help
Great product, so simple
Easy to administer, just clip the hose on and water away.
I have been using this product for many years now and it does work.
It leaves my lawn green and kills bindi's clover and other weeds but makes my grass grow better.
I use it on a hot day, then don't water the lawn for about a week afterwards.
It takes a few days for you to notice the weeds dying.
Its quite cheap for what it is and Yates I find to be better and more effective than other brands.
It works! Slowly
After reading the review online I was getting a bit skeptical about the product. However my lawn is infested with bindi weeds and dendalion weed
I tried the granular product to get rid of most dendalion weed but not the bindii , sow thirstle weed. Tried the hose on weed and feed and it got rid of most bindii, wire weed over 2-3 weeks but most of the remaining dendalion, sow thirstle survived. I am trying the second treatment last weekend and will update on progress.
The product is easy to apply and cover large area, reasonable priced too. Not so sure about the “feeding” part of the product, lawn still looks dry and yellow after applied the product unlike the granular weed and feed the lawn turns green after 3 days
Won't come out of bottle
Level in bottle didn't change even after putting bottle down with hose on and walking away for 20mins came back to same amount in the bottle useless waist of time and money. Now at what ratio do I mix it with water so I can use it with a pressure spray pack
Delivery Worked just fine! Not sure about results yet
Just cracked it open today, plugged it in and sprayed, water pressure in my neighborhood isnt great yet the delivery mechanism worked fine or as good as expected, keen to see how well the mix actially works now! Also wondering if more than 1 application is require post the inital spray
The Lawn Nut
This product is the best and cheapest, it works wonders, those who have had troublle with the nozzle
I Love The Product, the price and it works, make sure to open the end nozzle completely while hose is connected and under pressure
Fix the nozzle!!
I buy this product and decant it into another spray dispenser bottle so that I can use it. It's very frustrating. The hose inlet spurts water everywhere no matter how many different hose connections I try or how I vary the water pressure. I'm looking around for a product I can self mix into a watering can so that I don't have to buy this product ever again!! How hard is it to design a nozzle / connection that a) dispenses the product and b) doesn't spurt water all over the user.
Does not spray
As with many other reviews this product does not work as advertised. Attach a hose and spray, only nothing comes out! I have confirmed that both holes are open and tried different water pressures.
The actual product works, just the delivery method is defective.
How can you sell a product that simply does not work?
Like others will have to break open the bottle and apply by a sprayer.
Water everywhere. Did the weed and feed do any good?
We did the weed and feed this morning so now will wait 4 weeks to see if this works. Neighbors lawn looks great. By reading the reviews I am not sure if product any good. Could end up with weird summer lawn for playing croquet on and summer bbq time
Fix for nozzle not mixing with hose water
As mentioned in an earlier review, anyone unable to get the weed and feed nozzle working will likely have one or both of the prongs still stuck in the air holes that are meant to be clear to allow the hose spray to distribute the product. Just pull out the offending prong(s) with pliers and away you go.
I couldn't say if the product works because I couldn't get it to come out of the bottle. Will be taking it back and buying a different brand. I followed the instructions and even opened the bottle to check for blockage or poor connection and tried different water pressure but it wouldn't work.
I have been using this for years. It works after a couple of applications. Wish I didn’t get wet using it, but it works and is much cheaper than the sulky man who used to do it. It is quite an effort doing it. Weed and feed works for my three lawns.
I sprayed this product over the front area that basically contains a vast number of weeds over 3 weeks ago and I have to agree that it is a VERY slow way to kill weeds. I'm thinking I might have to respray the areas to give it an extra boost. I've noticed only a few weeds slowing dying and that's about it. We'll see. I'm not sure if I'd recommend this product as yet.
Yates Weed’n’Feed saved my lawn
When we moved to our new property the lawn was taken over by weeds, it was awful. I immediately spoke to the team at Yates on their FRee live chat service and the said Weed’n’Feed would do the job!
A month later my lawn is looking great. Couldn’t be happier - don’t believe all that you read on here. its an easy to use product that gets the job done. Cheaper than digging up the entire lawn & replacing it.
Works really well! Need to do it twice a year.
We are in an area with some forest, and there are a lot of weeds in our lawn. I use Weed and Feed about twice a year, and it works well. I don't see the weeds turn yellow, but they just stop growing. I spray the entire lawn with one 4L can, and mow the lawn one week later. After that, it's almost weed free for about 4 months and then it starts again.
Kills everything but the weeds
I question if there has been a change in the formula of Weed’n’Feed as I have used this product in the past without too much stress to the lawn. In late spring last year we used the product.... didn’t connect the dots at that point thinking it was weather problems or we didn’t follow instructions correctly as our lawn died back.
STUPIDLY we tried the product again about 5 weeks ago, to then watch our beautiful green lawn slowly die off.
All we have in our yard now is dead lawn with green patches of weeds. If we step out to our footpath we still have a beautiful lush green lawn as the Weed n Feed wasn’t used there. With winter fast approaching we have little options other than hiring machinery to dig the dead lawn over and buy and lay turf.
KEEP AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT
used the granules and spread it on the lawn as per instruction. left it for two days and watered the lawn. now the lawn is black and dead in patches only. Watering the dead patches hasn't helped and my lawn looks like a mess. Im not happy. I have sent an online complaint to https://www.yates.com.au/about/contact.
