    I just got a new account that has just about every kind of weed there is. Clover dandelions, chick weed, dollar weed. The whole yard is covered in weeds. Trying to figure out a plan of attack. Any ideas on what to do first?

    Hey, that's MY yard! It's green, OK! It's a touchy subject. :)

    should I not spray the weeds first?

    You probably would be better off spraying the weeds and waiting a couple days before mowing if possible. I am sure more of the product would make it onto the weeds that way, assuming they are taller than the grass.

    Once I get rid of the weeds could I over seed the yard with bermuda.

    depends on if you have all the licenses you need. If you don't have the licensing, you'll need to get that first before you apply anything.

    don't worry about it, when all the other yards are burned up this summer, your weed yard will still be growing , so you will still be cutting.
