    I dont see. It depends on the type of grass. I need more info, but I would call a pro before taking a chance

    Looks like you have bermuda........?
    The lawns looks somewhat flat with a slight tilt. Holds water well. Thick, tight mat of sod........great for wild onion and garlic.
    It will take a couple of years to eliminate them. One time will not do the trick....
    Do you have access to Lesco? Call them and talk to them about the conditions of your lawn. Show them some pictures if you choose to go granular or liquid. You can kick them it the head with a 3-way liquid product containing 2-4D,MCPP,Dicamba. A couple of applications will be needed. Below are some other recommendations as they are pricey and 3-way is a bit more economical. These are all liquids and will need to be applied as a post emerge.
    Do you have the means to apply any of these types of herbicides efficiently? Gallon sprayers and backpacks will work you to death! You will need a small tow boom sprayer and tractor. This will need to be calibrated to apply chemicals efficiently.

    Image(Imazaquin)....................read the label!
    Any of the Sulfonylurea type chemicals.
    Certainty.............
    Dismiss............... Read these labels before you apply!
    Monument...........

    It will be cost effective for you to contact an applicator rather than purchase enough chemical to treat your lawns size. It will cost you more in smaller containers than to hire it out professionally.

    Manor or Mansion(metsulfuron) is also good for this weed and many other winter weeds in bermuda. The safest way to apply any of the mentioned herbicides is through a calibrated boom. It is also the best way to ensure good coverage of the weeds. Spot spraying with hand sprayers misses weeds not visible above the grass. I also agree with hiring out this job. It is not only the chemicals that are costly, but the equipment and knowledge to apply correctly.
