    If you don't you could hire out the application or use steam....

    Call all of your customers with dogs and invite them over to the site for a spring get-together.

    Glyphosate (Roundup) is your safest bet. A few days later, work your seed in (by whatever means you are NOT till). If you see new growth coming in WITHIN seven days after putting the seed down, respray over the top with glyphosate again.
