Broadleaf weeds can be reduced through the use of pre-emergent and post-emergent herbicide, but eradicating them completely is unlikely. Broadleaf weed seeds occur naturally in soil. They are also introduced to lawns through bags of poor-quality grass seed mixes.

Maintaining a healthy lawn through irrigation, fertilizer, good mowing practices and herbicides will keep these weeds under control.Learn more about Outdoor Plants & Flowers
