    Hi guys
    I cut grass for a living and I've been seeing alot of virginia buttonweed in yards.I have it in my yard also and I would like to get a handle on this before it gets out of control.I've tried spraying MSMA on it,it burns it real good but within a couple of weeks it comes back.There has got to be something out there that will put a hurting on this nuisance weed.

    Yea, don't bother using MSMA. It won't control buttonweed. It will only slow it down and turn it purple. It works for grassy weeds. It's not really intended for broadleaf weeds. Be sure you are licensed before spraying someone elses lawn. Other than that, the link that was posted will guide you in about the only direction you can go to get "control" of buttonweed.
