Does what the instructions state
Read the instructions and follow these.
The product works really well; you'll see the broadleaf weeds start to wilt in a day or so and their death over the week.
If you're unsure about your lawn type, purchase the Buffalo Safe version (clearly labelled) to be certain not to damage your turf.
All the ppl on here leaving negative reviews do they bother to read the instructions properly i mean helloooo the product works fine the plastic bottle sprayes fine if you read and follow the intructions correctly you won't have a problem with Yates Weed and feed !

Killed my Kikuyu
Beautiful green lawn one week , spray this rubbish on my lawn to rid of some weeds and to feed it too. Went away for a week hoping to come back to the still, lovely green lawn only to find this it is all dead. Don't mind the weeds,they are still thriving. Contacted them and they are trying to pass the buck, asking me 20 questions. I had photos of my lawn prior to application. It is not safe on kikuyu as stated. Now I have dead lawn for Christmas. Oh and still now waiting for the outcome from them. Thanks very much Yates, I will never buy any of your products again.
Just spent an hour watering this product and pack has barely reduced. There is no tube or pump to be seen inside the pack so wondering how does the product rise to combine with the hose water? I think I have just been watering my lawn. Thought Yates were good products but have a negative opinion now.
IT FEED WEEDS......... Useless rip off product
Bought to kill only weeds in my lawn as I wanted to re seeding it during early spring, waited for a week plus in hope for weeds to die but nothing happened wasted my time. Weeds looks more healthy. Please do not wast money on buying this useless product.

Cheaper to buy straight water GRAP
This stuff is grap I brought 4 bottles took weeks to see any results when I did it only killed a bit of clover wasted money bunning should stop selling this rubbish and sell bottled water as weed killer would get a better result. I also emailed yates and guess what no reply, supprise supprise!!!!!!! Do not buy.
Purchased in September 2010 at BUNNINGS.
Lived with a sparse, weedy, yellowing lawn for 5 years then sprayed Weed and Feed for the first time a couple of months ago. Now thick and dark green. Trouble is I have just doubled my lawn mowing chores. I had some nasty weeds which are being choked out although the winter grass is still there. Will definitely buy it again.
Hose connection fine - just remember to open the air intake hole in the bottle or the product wont come out.
October 28th 2019 Update: Downgrading my last review
My last review of this product was 5 stars but the weeds h...ave started growing more vigorously now so I am downgrading to 4 stars. The lawn is rich and dark green and growing at a great rate thanks to Weed and Feed. I can see that the "Feed" aspect is much better than the "Weed" aspect. I am hoping a healthy lawn might choke out the weeds.
2 Green Thumbs Up!
Recently moved into a new place and couldn’t see the grass through all the weeds, I considered re-turfing but after 2 applications of weed n feed, I actually have grass! Would never have thought to try it if I hadn’t contacted the guys at Yates! Thank you Yates
Killed My Saphire Buffalo Lawn - Do not buy
Purchased this Yates Weed n Feed Liquid product from Bunnings in order to kill off the clover growing in my 2 year old sapphire buffalo lawn. Other than a few clover weeds turning slightly yellow (many did not), it has killed my lawn which is now 80% dead brown. I applied it as per the bottle instructions. I am hoping it will recover and repair itself otherwise it will all have to be replaced. Not buying this product again.
Waste of precious time
Total waste of time. I have all the weed chemicals but to save time maintaining the sprayer etc I bought 2 bottles of weed and feed. Followed instructions to the T. Ended up watering the weeds for over half an hour , imagining the bottle was getting lighter and lighter. And that’s all it was , my imagination. Not happy Yates
got a few litre bottle from Bunnings, clipped straight onto my hose like it was born to do it, sprayed a dream, only been 2 days so can't speak on it working but seems none of use really want to talk about that and are worrying about wet hands anyways.
providing the weeds dissapear will definitely buy again
This product is a waste of money, time and especially water. It took 45 minutes for one 2litre bottle to empty. And the other bottle has barely reduced it's liquid after 40 minutes of spraying. The so called help centre only offers to send a new cap but clearly it's a design fault as the cap and internal straw is in tact. I personally don't see how it can scientifically work anyway as the water comes out horizontally but the fluid comes up diagonally with no pump I can't see how it works
Purchased in September 2019 for $25.00.

Questions & Answers
Can you reuse the weed and feed spray bottle with weed and feed concentrate once the sprayer is empty? If so what ratio to water do i use?
The bottle would be reusable, although the lid is difficult to remove.
However you'd need to calculate perform a bit of a calculation to get the dose correct for whichever chemical you wanted to use, as you'd be putting in a partial concentrate which will be diluted as applied.
The bottle is recyclable.
