I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Feed your lawn a product with a 3-1-2 or 4-1-2 ratio of nutrients such as 15-5-10. Divide the first number of the three into 100 to get the number of pounds to apply per 1000 square feet of lawn area. Water it in after application.

There is not a product to kill Mondo without harming turfgrass. Hand digging (sorry!) is the only good option.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
