Weeds can often only fight tenaciously.
Herbicide - Provisional measures
Weed Has only settled once, this is often difficult to get at, so that the measures for removing represent often more expensive to take the preventive measures regularly. Regular cleaning of the green areas incl. Soil preparation you can control weeds like horsetails effectively.
- Especially the horsetails often represent a very problematic weed in the garden, because once settled, these plants are rooted very deep, so that the superficial tearing of the aerial parts of the plants is not sufficient, as this sprout again.

In this way, you rid the lawn of dead grass stalks and other weed species such as mosses and example yarrow. In addition, the blades of grass can provide better water and nutrients, so have a good resistance to the establishment of weeds such as horsetails.
- Horsetails grow particularly well there, where the soil environment is too acidic, so that also different weed species colonize besides the horsetails.
