Lion weeds out of control

taxtaxMay 25, 2011

Last year I really tried to dig out as much of the lions as possible. It seemed a task that just never ended.

This year things are just out of control. If I did not see it I wouldn't believe it. I will cut the grass, and within 24-HOURS the lions have already grown 12 inches! Not just that, but the seeds have turned from yellow to white over-night ontop of this.

How is this even possible? I never saw such a thing growing up in the country. At this point, it is hopeless trying to de-weed since you can't even stop them from sprouting.

Ill add one thing. When you dig, you turn the soil, you cover weed seeds and get more weeds to grow. When ever I dig and finish, I spray the dug area with peremergent.

What is lion weed? Do you mean dandelions?

The solution for dandelions is proper lawn maintenance.
What kind of grass do you have?
Where do you live? Need a town preferably.
How are you watering (how long and how often)?
How high/low do you mow?
How often do you fertilize and with what?

@dchall: That was my question. I've never heard of lion weed. I just assumed it was dandelion.
