In the Garden > Grasses, Ground Covers & Lawns
Many parts of Australia have been affected by drought in recent times. Lawns in those areas have tended to thin out and die back. Dryness combined with mowing too close has created perfect conditions for bindii to thrive.
Bindii (Soliva pterosperma)
In summer, this prickly lawn weed causes misery for humans and animals alike. That is why itís important to tackle the problem in winter, before the plants set their seed.
