The Q&A Archives: Weeds everywhere!

Question: I have put down so much weed and feed...everything from Scotts to store brands. I made 3 applications and my yard if filled with weeds! The bad part is the grass is dormat for the most part, but the weeds are 10 inches tall and green. Help!

Answer: A lush, thick lawn will crowd out weeds so you may want to overseed your warm season grass with perennial ryegrass so there's some type of lawn growing in at least spring, summer and fall. If you currently have more weeds than lawn, you may just want to start over, killing everything out and replanting your lawn. Otherwise, digging or spot treating with a vegetation killer such as Round Up might help you get control of the weeds. Good luck with your project!
