    How do I get rid of the sprouts in the lawn. A few years ago I cut down the tree and ground the stump but sprouts keep coming back. Any solutions?

    Drill holes in the stump, pour in undiluted round-up or similar product.
    Procedure is outlined in the instruction sheet with round up.

    2-4,d everytime you see a sprout. Maybe till the area up it that doesn't work.
