    I take care of the grounds where I work. Last year they had to have the yard dug up sewer problem, they tore up 75% of it!!!:angry: They (the company doing the digging) then hydro-seeded it. 80% weeds/20% actual grass.
    I used Scott's weed and feed to try to get a start on fixing it. The weeds are winning having been well feed. I should have just wiped out the whole thing with Roundup and started with good seed. How much weed killer can I use, how often, and what do you recommend?

    you will have better results with a liquid 3 way weed control than you got with the granular.

    It's a broad-leaf alright, about 100 of them make up one whole spot in the lawn:laughing: I think it's pig weed, not really up one my weeds sorry, also a ton of dandelions.
    If I do manage to kill these suckers off, then what will keep the yard from eroding if I don't reseed???
