    Last year Ground Ivy started taking over parts of my lawn. Started way in the backyard but is working it's way up into the front lawn & really getting on my nerves.
    I am only looking for advice for my home lawn. I don't have my applicators license so please don't give me the run around I already know about all that.... :)

    What do you guys recommend I do/apply to control & get rid of this aggressive weed?

    Check out this website:


    Look specifically at page 15 of 18, and see if this helps. This is the Virginia Tech Pest Control Guide Recommendation.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    :confused: In turf?

    2,4D with triclopyr is your best bet...

    Doh, my bad, I guess I didn't read the whole post. Sorry, no Roundup would not be good in turf. :blush:
