Answer: It does take persistence to combat dandelions. Attack when they are weak, which means weeding with a vengeance during their flowering stage, removing as much of the root as possible. Mow and remove the clippings if they do go to seed to prevent reseeding. A healthy lawn is a deterrent to dandelions because they prefer thin turf. Also, mowing with the blade set high will allow the grass to shade the low-growing weeds and slow the germination of weed seeds.
