Wild Onions are Coming Up. Best Product/When to Use?
My yearly yard pain (Wild Onions) is coming back already... This time, I'm not going to waste my time trying to dig them up or using boiling water, or what not... It's just too much, even with my tiny 6,000 square foot yard...
Last year was the first year I actually had the time to sit down and "treat" my lawn, as compared to just regular mowings... During the end of summer/beginning of fall, I dethatched, fertilized and reseeded the yard. I had grubs and the skunks were tearing up the new grass, so I used GrubEx (it was probably too late in the season, though, to do much good).
I also had lots of crabgrass, so I will be applying pre-emergent crabgrass control when the temp hits 60 or so...
I will be reseeding and fertilizing again this spring, but I'd like to know what to do with the wild onions that are already popping up around the yard. (at least the parts that aren't still covered with snow)
My question is, when and what type of broad-leaf weed control should I be using to kill the wild onions when I will also be GrubEx-ing, using the Crabgrass control, fertilizing and reseeding? Should I use granular or liquid weed control?
What is the correct order for doing these things? When should they be done?
Just for some visual stimulation:
