I have just used Verdone lawn weedkiller on my lawn and then having come back in to wash out the watering can, I realised that I had used it at 10 times the recommended strength. What should I do - apart from digging up the lawn and starting from scratch of course?



well Taingreen, if you don't have a hosepipe restriction in your area, stop everything and really soak your lawn in order to dilute the weed killer.

I see that you asked this question yesterday but i'm sure it will take a few days to have started some serious damage, just SOAK!

A friend did something similar and he soaked the lawn and saved it do check the hose pipe ban in your area

Ban doesn't start till 5th April anywhere.

27/03 - Thanks for the answers so far - we don't know what a hosepipe ban is in these far northern parts and I have taken the advice and soaked it thoroughly morning and night on Sunday - here's hoping it'll survive - its not dead yet :-)
