Wild Violets throughout the lawn!! Probably about 60%, grass exsisting is working its way to healthy. Is there a product that can clean this up, or is it renovation time? I talked to PBI Gordon and they recommended speedzone?

Not sure what type of grass you're dealing with?

Something with Triclopyr ester will work great. Chaser or Dow's Turflon ester has it in them. Burmudagrass is one that can be damaged by it though...

Good luck!:usflag:

I am not familiar with Ortho's products. It may have Triclopyr in it? Here is a link to Purdues test's on chemical control of Ground Ivy (they say that Wild Violet should be close to this control wise...)

I personally have had good luck with Triclopyr.

Yes, Ortho's Chickweed and clover killer has 8 percent triclopyr. Good place to start. Repeat every seven days until gone.

don't take that to the bank..If you look you can find it a lot of places.

I still use my 33% triclopyr and like it..:)

Interesting every 7 days? No chance for burning the lawn...Perhaps the concnetration within Ortho will permit such frequent treatments?

I was gonna say that. What about turflon ester? Has a high percentage of triclopyr in it, is that labeled for lawns?

wild violets? Good Luck! I have tried this and gotten that. Thinking the timing was right but it wasn't. When timing and conditions weren't right it did work. Point is no matter what chem you use IMO of 16+ years, it is a crap-shoot. Good Luck!

Garlon 4 ultra has 60.5% triclopyr?! That seems like overkill

It is in a more concentrated form to make shipping less costly. Follow the label directions and you will apply the same amount of active ingredient per acre.

? what, depends on the mix rate. Best cool-weather control = Three-way ester II + Solitare. Warm-weather = Momentum or Battleship II or Eliminate or Crossbow, etc + Solitare! spike either with some Turflon ester (triclopyr ester) to improve.
