I wanted to give an update on my quest to retake my yard. I sprayed all of the broad leaf weeds with a Fertilome weed killer. The wild violets and clover had to be srayed twice before they really started to die.
You can see a big bare spot where the clover was. I am trying to be particulaly vigilant waith my fertilization and pre-emmergent applications in that area. The are still some grassy weeds that I have to work on. Some of them I will just dig up.
Unfortunately I have a pretty good crop of what to me is the one of the worlds worst weeds.
I will post on that battle soon.
