    I have a yard that is being taken over by creeping charlie or creeping myrtle. not sure but it looks viney with small green leaf and small purple flower. What works best on this without killing the grass?

    That ad above is a complete crock!
    For ground ivy (creeping charlie), we use confront. 3 aps, 2 weeks apart.

    any 3-way product, Triplet, Lesco 3-way, Strike Three, with Quicksilver will smoke ground Ivy quite well provided that is what your trying to kill. Haven't used it on Myrtle, most customers plant that for ground cover, not a good idea, lol.
