dandelions

dinosaur1(5)May 5, 2012

I follow the annual program from Scott's on my lawn 4 times per year. This year I have an unusual higher amount of dandelions probably because the weather has been warmer earlier this year. What's the best way to get rid of them? Last year I tried weed b gone that doesn't kill grass, but I still ended up having yellow spots all over a month later? Should I buy the 'Weed Hound'' dandelion digger?

The weed hound is a great tool, but first...

How often and for how long do you water?
What kind of grass do you have?
How high/low do you mow?

Sometimes it takes a second or third app of Weed-B-Gone. Just keep the spray to a minimum only moistening the leaves of the weed and not drenching the soil.
