Hello I've found this site looking for a solution to a problem I have. We are on an acre near Beaudesert SE QLD and our lawn gets watered from the pump out of the septic system. we have recently started to get a lot of stinging nettles growing up through the lawn. It's unfortunately getting to the stage that the kids don't want to go play down the back. I've tried spraying them with a broadleaf herbicide I got from the nursery but they don't seem to die off. They do seem to be worse where the sprinklers sit for a few days.

good chance you're mowing it too low - most broadleaf herbicides need a follow up spray after a fortnight, spray early in the morning and get good saturation

Get a local lawn care contractor to have a look it could be many different things that can be done to stregthing the lawn to help chock out the thissles. 

 

the water is probably too rich in nutients for a lawn and also you may not be moving it often enough thissles like wet soil and high nutrients,

 

Keep the splinkler off the lawn area you want to use.   boad leaf wont kill it you need roundup
