Herbicides containing triclopyr or clopyralid (Confront) can be used in controlling chickweed in the lawn. It is important to make sure these herbicides don?t come in contact with desired broadleaf plants. However, they are relatively safe to use in your established lawns (see label for specifics). In areas where desirable vegetation is not present, such as cracks in your paved driveway, glyphosate, a non-selective herbicide found in several home-use products, such as Roundup, has good activity on chickweed. In the case of glyphosate, don?t let it come in contact with any desirable vegetation, including your grass.
