    MSMA will do the trick or you can use "Everything Must Go" by Farm Crop Extracts.

    Most all the homeowner books have the simple fixes for clover. Clover is one of the easiest to stay away from with a good fert regiment. But initially 2-4D will be a cheap easy fix. read the instructions and more books so when that tough weed actually comes along you wont need to ask.
    If in doubt hire a profesional.

    My vote for 2-4D; Trimec (or a generic substitute) will do a nice job...never used speedzone; supposed to kill a bit quicker.

    Any "ester" formulation herbicide will do the job -- I recommend "Chaser".

    Careful with esters in temps over 70, maybe even lower than that if you have sensitive plants near the lawn. Esters volitize easily and move in the air and do damage many feet from the lawn under the right conditions.

    Speaking from experience unfortunately,

    Call Chemlawn since it sounds like you aren't licensed to apply this and that stuff in a yard. You need a license to apply some types of stuff in a yard and once you get a license then you will know what type of stuff I am talking about.:laugh:

    i would hire a professional other than Chemlawn..........i worked with former employees of Chemlawn, that company has serious ethics issues..........false applicaitons, telling you rain won't be an issue and so on

    perhaps not all but i've never heard a good thing about that company, I used to work for TruGreen (landcare, not chemlawn) as an intern and even they were tell'n me such stories

    maybe not all branches but i would def consider someone else.........subcontract oportunity for you!
