    You can buy groundup and spray it on with a sprayer. It should take effect in 2 days. There may be something stronger than groundup.

    Daniel, are you a licensed applicator? Please ask where the targeted weeds exist before making a recommendation such as this to an interested homeowner. He's here for constructive advise & should be able to inquire with confidence. (G)Roundup is a non-selective herbicide. John (RIPPIN) is talking about his lawn. He could have wiped it out entirely. It's a mew lawn off to a good start. He just aerated, Limed, & applied his first round. And you'd have him kill it?


    Didn't you just wack your lawn with Bayer Advanced herbicide? If so, it takes 7-10 days to show symptoms unless it had 2,4-D in it. If it did, the weeds should have curled in 2-3 days or less.
    Your second application on the program thoroughly addresses broadlef weeds. If they're getting out of hand, let me know. I can shuffle the date on the program for you without compromise or dead grass.

    Let me know.

    Sprayed the Bayer advanced about a week ago, some spots were affected others weren't so I hit them again last night. I will give it another week and see how it goes. The grass is looking really good now but I still have some bare spots mingled in. I am sure those will eventually grow in though. I think the program is working great and wouldn't change a thing unless the clover doesn't go awa in after these treatments. Its not really bad but I am trying for carpet!!

    Just another example that you get what you pay for. Make sure you ask a professional before taking any advice here. Or at the very least read the label before using it just to make sure.

    Just like Landscraper had said patience, the carpet will come in due time. Don't rush a good thing.
