lawn weeds

Postby southsideva » Mon Mar 12, 2012 8:14 pm

Since putting dirt from the woods on our yard in certain areas those areas continue year after year and thru the year to produce many variety of weeds. I suppose that soil is infected with weed roots. Can anything be done to deweed it. Some of the weeds have spread to other areas in the yard and to others yards. During summer gras will overgorw it but weeds are simply covered over. We really want grass back like it used to be. Any ideas?

One of the keys to a weed-free lawn is to have a healthy, lush lawn that is well fed and well watered. Always mow the grass high (3" is best for most turf types).
There are many different broadleaf weed killers that you can apply to help control the lawn weeds you have now. The one that will work best for you depends upon the type of weeds that you have in your lawn. At this point, it is probably too late to put down a pre-emergence weed killer so you would need to focus on using a post-emergence herbicide. Weed and Feed products will contain both fertilizer and weed killers. Scotts MiracleGro ( and Bonide ( both have weed and feed products. In addition, Bonide and Bayer Advanced ( have products that can be sprayed or spread on the lawn that will kill broadleaf weeds in the lawn without harming the grass. Check the label to be sure it will control the types of weeds that you have growing in your lawn and be sure to apply according to the label directions.
