Thread OP
I'm in Northern Ohio.

I read somewhere that creeping Charlie makes a decent lawn alternative. And because it seems to want badly to grow in my yard and because I hate mowing, I decided to leave it be.

Now I'm discovering that it doesn't do the greatest job choking out dandelions. I'm growing weary of weeding them out individually and was looking to find a granular weed killer that wouldn't kill my Charlie. But everything I find online assumes that I WANT to kill it.

Should I just kill it with granular weed killer at this point? I'll end up with bare ground and I'll have to reseed. Or does anyone know of an easier way to kill the dandelions without killing the creeping charlie?

I'd rather have the dandylions...

Have you considered eating them?

Try making 'coffee' out of the roots?

Very surprised that anything bothers that creeping charlie!
