Trimec from Farm and Fleet or Fleet Farm will do it. Good stuff.

Thanks Hurricane. That is it. It sounds like it is hard to get rid of too!

I don't spray my lawn at all. I don't mind dandelions or clover. They go away soon enough. I'd prefer not having chemicals on the lawn with the kids and dog out there.

However, I've got this small vine like weed that has a purple flower. It spreads like gangbusters in the yard. Anyone know what it might be? Not loosestrife, but small and close to the ground. I might spray if I could possibly get rid of that bugger.

I use Ortho weeb be gone in a tank sprayer. I like to mix it a little hot for best results. Works great. Follow that up with some watering once the weeds burn down. Borax mixed in soapy water and sprayed on Chalrie will knock it down but it takes awhile. I forget the recipe but you can look it up online. Ortho works also.

Another thing that works on Charlie is Trimec. It has dicamba which Charlie don't like at all.

One question. Maybe it's already been answered and I missed it. Do these hose end weed controls work on clover? Seems to be taking over in my front yard. Thanks!

Mr.Bass,

Charlie can be kept in check with Ortho Weed-B-Gone spray. Kills weeds, not grass. Worked for me, but you have to revisit each year.

I put down Scotts Winterizer every fall and then Weed And Feed and Turf Builder every spring and summer. These remove all the weeds and crab grass. I have been very impressed and I think my lawn looks great. The only issues I have is the creeping charlie that crosses my fence from the neighbor's every damn year. The only way to kill that stuff is to dig it up and re apply some seed.
