The Q&A Archives: how to kill clover-like weeds with thorns

Question: yard covered with clover-like weeds with thorn seeds. stopped watering they look dead should I mow & bag them to get rid of them? I want grass again.

Answer: Mowing and bagging are a good first step. Once you begin to water again, the seeds they left behind might sprout so after mowing and bagging use a pre emergence product with a corn gluten base to keep the weed seeds from germinating. There are several brands on the market so just look for pre emergent weed controls and apply as recommended on the label. Good luck with your lawn!
