I have a problem with a lawn. A few hundred maple tree sprouts. Does anyone have a suggestion on what to use to kill them? If the land scaper cuts the lawn 5 - 6 times they go away. The customer wants them gone sooner. Any help out there?

Since the want them gone sooner, then a 3 way broadleaf herbicide should do fine :)

They usually aren't very noticeable in a thick healthy lawn. Might be a good opportunity to talk them into some overseeding and increasing fertility.

That's what I'd suggest.

Spray, delay mowing a few days to spare the maple leaves, without letting the lawn's meristem rise too high, and it should be fairly effective.
