How much do I need?

To determine the size of your lawn, multiply the length x width in metres 1 large stride = approximately 1 metre


How do I apply it?

  1. Shake the bottle well before attaching to the hose - ensure the thumb switch is in the OFF position first
  2. Tighten the hose connector on the handle prior to connecting the hose; turn the hose tap on
  3. Extend the hose to the farthest part of the lawn to be treated before you start and work back towards the tap or path, so you are not walking over herbicide-treated areas and potentially spreading herbicides where they are not wanted
  4. Slide the thumb switch to the ON position to feed, weed and green your lawn or slide to the WATER position to just water your garden
  5. Walk slowly using a sweeping action to evenly distribute the spray over the measured lawn area
  6. For accurate dispensing check the handy view strip on the side of the bottle
  7. When finished, switch to OFF position and turn hose tap off

Note: For new varieties of Buffalo Lawn we advise you test a small patch before applying to the entire lawn
