Greetings from a homeowner in northern NJ (suburban NYC). Since moving in 5 years ago I'm locked in a yearly battle against broadleaf plantain. When we bought the house, the previous owners didn't do much to the lawn and it was essentially a weedfest when we moved in. In 3 years I've eliminated 95% of it and through yearly core aerations and overseedings, an irrigation system, 5 fertilizations a year, lime and 3" mowings, I have a pretty good looking lawn...except for the damned plantain. I've even had a dozen or so neighbours come up and ask which company does my lawn! The grasses are mostly various types of TTTF and RG, with some KBG in the front. Back and north side yards are fairly heavily shaded, front gets 6 hours of sun in the summer but is under three 100' tall oaks. I've never had much of a crabgrass problem (a bit here and there), but plantain, creeping charlie and poa annua are the only real nemeses to my lawn. For weed control I'm using Weed-B-Gon MAX to spot treat only, usually in mid-to-late June but often weeds are present in the hot summer months and frankly I'd like to find a long-term solution to getting rid of these pests. I'm using a slightly hotter WGB dilution than recommended on the label, putting its percentages a tad closer to Q4 Plus, and I'm very satisfied with the results...but I'm always reacting as opposed to being proactive in preventing them. Is there anything I can do to stop them darned things from coming up in the first place? I'm pretty sure Dimension doesn't protect against plantain. If we get another hot July and August and another round of plantain creeps up on me (plus crabgrass, since I didn't lay down Dimension this year), am I basically stuck with it for 2012, since I plan to aerate/overseed again in mid-September? Thanks in advance.
