Drive XLR8 for Crabgrass and Bindweed Killer is the only product that will kill and control crabgrass and/or bindweed with only one application.
Crabgrass is an annual grass that germinates in the weak or damaged spots of lawns during the month of June and can be seen until after the first frost which is typically in October. Crabgrass is most abundant on the edges of the lawn and often grows in the stressed areas of the lawn or in lawns that are being cut to short. Crabgrass will only grow if there is an opportunity for crabgrass to germinate in the lawn. A thick and dense lawn will never develop a crabgrass problem. If crabgrass does grow in a lawn we use a special crabgrass killer called Drive XLR8 to kill the grassy weed quickly, After a crabgrass weed killer application it typically takes about 7-14 days for the weed to completely die. Crabgrass can be a problem for lawns in Boulder and Fort Collins, but it will only grow in lawns with stressed out turf or lawns that are being mowed too short.
Bindweed is a creeping weed that typically germinates in lawns in Boulder and Fort Collins 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 an entire yard or native grass area and is not susceptible to weed control even by the strongest weed killers. It is important to kill bindweed growing in a lawn because bindweed seeds can remain viable in soils for up to 50 years. Bindweed tends to be found in drought stressed lawns and can often be controlled long term with proper lawn watering and lawn mowing practices. If you have these weeds in your Boulder or Fort Collins lawns, we will only guarantee control if we use Drive XLR8 as a post-emergent bindweed killer.
Drive XLR8 weed and crabgrass killer 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 WEED CONTROL APPLIED:
For Controlling Bindweed in lawns: 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 crabgrass is easier to control than mature crabgrass.
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.
