I've never had that problem. Even in some of the worst CG, the existing grass stays green.

Thanks guys. I have a very small lawn mowing service. So, I am not sure if I can even get the chemicals. I do not have a pesticide/herbicide liscence. However, these weeds are on my parents lawn and I want to see if I can get rid of them. I went to the local nursery and they suggested "weed b -gone. But, I was hoping there was something more potent that I would be able to purchase. Are any of the above mentioned chemicals available to a homeowner? Thanks.

Gordon's Trimec Plus. It's basically three chemicals for broadleafs along with a crab-grass killer. You can find it at some home stores and I know Tractor Supply carries it.

You won't get 100% death, but you'll get a good to great control on the weeds. A second application in the fall will help.

Just make sure you follow all the label directions and read it from cover to cover. The temps are you biggest enemy this time of year.
