The Q&A Archives: Dandilions

Question: I have tried fertilizers and everything under the sun, an can not rid my yard of dandilions. I have had this problem for about a year now since I removed some dead pine trees.

Answer: I suggest you purchase a weed killer for broadleaved weeds and make individual treatments to the dandelions. This will be more important in the fall or very early spring when the plants are still small. Products containing a mixture of 2,4-D, and Dicamba should work but there are other such combinations at you local Home Depot store. Just make sure it is for broadleaf weeds, not grassy weeds and that it is for killing existing weeds, not preventing weeds. In the meantime work on proper mowing, watering and fertilizing to increase the health and density of your lawn. This helps choke out and prevent many weed problems. Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
