    Default Bindis. Summers biggest barefoot problem.

    What's the most effective way to get rid of bindis in the lawn? Weed and feed? Last year I pulled them out by hand while my ds played. But this year there are heaps more and I have a newborn. I'm worried about ds playing on the lawn and getting chemical all over him.
    So how does it work? What does everyone do? I don't want my toddler to have to wear shoes all the time.
    Thanks heaps.

    My sister just got some stuff that killed the bindis but not the grass. I'm seeing her today so will find out what she used.

    There is something you can get that kids bindis but not grass. It's pretty toxic though

    The most successful way I've done it is to remove them! If you do it now while the bindi's are fresh and still green, then you're more likely to remove all the seeds as well so they don't grow back. If you wait til the seeds are brown and spiky in summer then they'll spill everywhere as you're removing them. I used one of those weed remover things with the roundy bit on the bottom, and just walked around looking for them while the kids were out playing. It took a couple of weeks of casually keeping an eye out for them and pulling them out but they didn't come back the next year at all.

    We always use Weed and Feed. According to DH it isn't really harsh chemicals just salt. Apparently the way glass blades are shaped the liquid salt runs off but on broad type weeds like Bindii's it doesn't, that's why it kills them and not the grass

    If you have cat heads, you are going to need a spade to dig them out. But if it's just Bindii's we let them go yellow, then give it a really good water for a few days which softens them right up and by then the grass is growing through them.
