Once it has been watered in either through irrigation or rainfall, MOW it. Watch how fast the weeds die then...A weed must be growing to die(as crazy as that sounds). Once they are somewhat mature or have flowers or seeds on them, they are just sitting there. You have to force them to grow. Mowing them off will force them to grow.

Ted is right. Weeds that are not growing will simply hibernate through an application of sulfonylurea herbicides such as Celsius. That is why a lawn must have adequate water, fertilizer and the correct mowing procedures prior to my treating it. The period after treatment is not the time to starve the lawn or dry it out either. Without all three things in order, results are partial at best, and there is a risk of damage with the heavier products such as metsulfuron or Monument.
