Weeds in the lawn are not visually attractive and also destroy the lawn area in the long run.

The herb has good growing conditions because it is stronger than the delicate blades of grass. Your lawn needs appropriate care so that it can thrive splendidly. Weeds deprive him of this power and are also not a particularly beautiful sight. Most hobby gardeners therefore aim to control weeds in the lawn.
What is weed?
Here the spirits differ, because what one perceives as beautiful disturbs the other tremendously.

Causes of weeds in the lawn

Tip 1 against weeds in the lawn
Mow and scarify properly
As a first measure against weeds, the lawn must be cut very short. After mowing and removing the clippings, apply very fine and dry sand. Then the lawn is scarified thoroughly. This allows the sand to penetrate deep into the soil and at the same time remove any moss.

Cut out weeds and sow the lawn seeds
