(NewsUSA) - Attacking weeds without doing your research could lead to some unsightly brown patches. So, how do you rid your lawn of pesky weeds without harming your grass?

The following tips can help you defend your lawn against weeds:

* Choose the best herbicide to kill the weeds. Most herbicides fall into two categories: selective and non-selective. You'll need a selective herbicide to kill the weeds in established lawns or on small patches around trees, shrubs and flower beds.

Choose a non-selective herbicide for large jobs or where you don't want any plants to grow, like on concrete and brick walkways, driveways, patios and around fences.
