Knowing how to kill weeds in grass is made complicated by the sheer variety of weeds that can infiltrate your lawn. But rather than taking a one-product approach, sometimes tailoring your method depending on the weed can give you the best results.

We spoke to grass expert Guy Jenkins, Consumer Manager at Johnsons Lawn Seed, about the best way to get rid of weeds from your lawn and garden landscaping ideas without unintentionally killing off your lush grass blades too.
