A herbicide in lawn care

In lawn care, the majority of weedkillers used are selective. This means that they are designed to only target certain ground of plants. A weedkiller used in a lawn treatment only targets groups of weeds, and leaves the grass and some other plants unharmed.

Herbicides used by professional lawn care technicians are for professional use only. There are restricted to license holders only and are not available for public use. This is because they can be stronger than home weedkillers, but much more effective and used in smaller quantities than home use chemicals.
