How to kill ground ivy?
My lawn is heavily infested with ground ivy, or creeping charlie (Glechoma hederacea). I was able to ID this online from the state agricultural extension site. I bought a dry combination fertilizer/weed killer (Scotts) at the hardware store, which was the only one they had. However, this weed was not mentioned on the label, (there was a picture of a dandelion), nor were the weedkiller ingredients listed. (I thought this was kind of strange: how will you know if it works, unless you know what it is formulated for and what it contains?). IÂm hoping to find a dry product, as the liquids would be really hard to apply consistently. I have a hose end sprayer but never have figured out how to set/adjust it for proper dilution. I also have many flower beds interspersed with the lawn and overspray could cause a lot of grief.
Any suggestions for a product that will work? I donÂt need anything for dandelions, but this ground ivy is starting to eat the yard. Thanks!
