Turn the dream into a reality with pre-emergent products, which stops weeds before they even emerge.
What are pre-emergent products?
As the name suggests, pre-emergent products kill weeds before they emerge. Victorian turf farmers commonly use pre-emergent products to assist in growing high-quality lawns. These products have been around for some time, but it is only more recently that they have started to be used in residential lawns.
Which pre-emergent product should I use?
The product we use is Oxafert, a pre-emergent herbicide fertiliser. When applied correctly it will kill stubborn annual weeds such as winter grass and oxalis before they even appear. Not only that, but the fertiliser element will provide all the nutrients your lawn needs to stay green and healthy. Oxafert can be used on all our lawns, including Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo, Eureka Premium VG Kikuyu, and Tif Tuf Bermuda.
How does Oxafert pre-emergent work?
Oxafert works beneath the surface to form a natural barrier to germination of both broadleaf and annual grass-type weeds, preventing seedlings from forming.
When should I use Oxafert pre-emergent?
The ideal times to apply Oxafert are February and April, but you can use Oxafert year-round in place of a slow-release fertiliser. Oxafert is a great way to control those weeds that are especially difficult to eradicate, such as winter grass (Poa) and oxalis. If either of these weeds are present in your lawn, we recommend using Oxafert every 8 weeks year-round. Make sure you get good, even coverage across your entire lawn.

Where do I purchase Oxafert?
Oxafert is available from any Lawn Solution Centre, or you can order online.
