Q

We have creeping mountain sorrel in our lawn and can't get rid of it. Do you have any recommendations on products that might kill it, or any other ways to get rid of it?

Answer(s)

A

Without seeing the weed you are struggling with in your lawn it is difficult to give you control options.  I think what you are describing is oxalis or wood sorrel.  For this perennial weed, it is probably best to control it with both a pre-emergent herbicide as well as a broadleaf herbicide spray (when temperatures are below 85 degrees F).  I have attached an article for you to read more about this weed.  http://www.larrysagers.com/weeklyarticles/fall_action_helps_stop_weeds_in_spring_92-10-08.html. Good Luck.
