    I have a client that wants no herbicides in her lawn. the lawn has lots of dandeliions and clover. I have read about corn gluten but just about everybody in the house is gluten intollerant. So I do not know if spreading corn gluten all aver the place is a good idea or is there anything else I can try.
    Thanks

    I had a client like that. Every application included 10 minutes of hand weeding. Worked out fairly well.

    Eventually he permitted me to spot spray weeds in October, if I used a really safe product and used less than 6 ounces of solution.

    Eventually I was allowed to use Quicksilver, because I used only 20 drops of chemistry in a hand held sprayer. The toxicity is about 100 times less than Weed b Gone.
