A product like trimec, three - way, 2 4-d will work fine. Put it in a backpack sprayer 4oz to one gallon and coat litely you will do fine. Make sure your licensed to do it first though.

How about some aeration, plantain is a sign of compacted soil.

Aeration is the next in line -2 of them are new this year and they didn't want to pony up extra $ for the service in the spring now they want to because they see the consequences. The third one I was only contracted for cut and he had another CO handling fertilizer and lawn conditioning. (he choose them because they were like 30 $ per visit and I wasn’t gonna lowball and just watched his lawn going down as they were skimping on everything from regular apps to weed control to aeration. So finally the guy came to his senses
