Ok so we bought this house around 4 months ago. Toward the end of mowing season. Well over fall/winter wild onions set in. Im not talking a few here an there! Im talking EVERYWHERE. It looks like solid onions looking across my back yard. At this time of year what can I do to kill them. I see people suggest digging them up but there is no way to do this on mine. 2 acres and would take me till next season to get em all dug up lol. So what options do I have?

Also, me an my wife are looking to get are grass in better shape. Can anyone recomend a path to take? Fertilizers and what not? Were not very educated when it comes to fertilizing etc. Any help is appreciated!

Where ate you located?
What type of grasses do you have?
I would look for a good company that is pesticide certified. A good company should be able to help you to rid your lawn of onions and get you set up on some type of 7-10 step program.

The reason I ask what type grass you have would dictate the chemical you should use.

If you can calibrate a sprayer then get you some Speedzone Southern and say goog by to those wild onions/wild garlic in about 10 days

Yeh I can calibrate a sprayer. We plant large acres of corn etc on our farm. Which is actually way diffrent the dealing with grass. Thus why im clueless. I will look into the speedzone southern.

After I get done with the the speedzone southern, I have a ariator/spreader should I use something like Southern Weed & Feed?

Most 3way herbicides will take out wild onion/garlic.

The speedzone southern will take care of all your broadleaf weeds so you will not need weed n feed. You might want to put down some pre m to stop crabgrass thoigh.
