    Atrazine is both a post and pre emerge herbicide. It will control Alexander Grass and Creeping Charlie post emerge. The other grassy weeds can be controlled pre-emerge with Atrazine and other Pre emerge during the year.

    However I do have some very special herbicide that you can not buy, that will control all those weeds post emerge. If you only have a few you might want to go the Atrazine route and gain control by next year. BTW you will need to apply a pre emerge every 60 day to keep them under control. Atrazine is only labelled to be applied twice a year. Therefore you must use another pre emerge the rest of the year. Weed & Feed with atrazine will give you better long term control than spray. You will need the Long Term control of Weed & Feed to control those weeds.
