Drive XLR8 for Crabgrass and Bindweed Control is the only product that will post-emergently kill and control crabgrass and/or bindweed with only one application.
Crabgrass is an annual grass that germinates in June and can be seen in lawns through October. Crabgrass is most abundant on the edges of the lawn and often grows in clumps and in stressed areas of the lawn. Crabgrass will only grow if there is an opportunity in the lawn and a thick and dense lawn will never develop a crabgrass problem. The crabgrass will die within 3-7 days after the Drive XLR8 application on your Boulder or Fort Collins area lawn.
Bindweed is a creeping weed that germinates from May through August. Bindweed has a very extensive root system and often is seen with white, pink, or yellow flowers. Bindweed can often take over a yard or native grass area and is not susceptible to weed control by the most broad-spectrum pesticides. It is important to treat for bindweed because bindweed seeds can remain viable in soils for up to 50 years. Bindweed tends to be found in drought stressed areas and can often be controlled long term with proper lawn watering. If you have these weeds, we will only guarantee control in your Boulder or Fort Collins area lawn with the use of Drive XLR8 post-emergent crabgrass and bindweed killer.
Drive XLR8 weed control is registered with the EPA by BASF, EPA reg. # 7969-272. This post-emergent crabgrass and bindweed killer is also registered with the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
IDEAL TIME TO HAVE APPLIED:
For Controlling Bindweed: Varies from year to year but we typically get the best weed control on bindweed towards the end of May / early June or anytime that bindweed is up and actively growing.
For Controlling Crabgrass: Varies from year to year but we typically get the best crabgrass control towards the end of June / early July, because this is when crabgrass germinates. Young weeds and grasses are easier to control than mature weeds and grasses.
For Bindweed Control: Anytime that bindweed is actively growing. This can be as early as April to the end of September.
For Crabgrass Control: Anytime that crabgrass is actively growing. This can be as early as the middle of June to the middle of September.
