I am still in a war to take back my yard from the pokies! The crop of them this year is bigger than ever thanks to my great idea to put weed-n-feed in the yard.
A few weeks ago I talked to a lawn professional about my problem and he told me that I am on a three year mission to totally get rid of the burweed. Three years! And that I should have started spraying chemicals on the yard in January. ARGHHHH!
After trying Ortho WeedBGone, which worked some, but not as good as I had hoped, I went back to what Daryl had suggested -- 2-4-D. I put some in a hand-held sprayer to test it out and it worked great.
|The left side has been sprayed and has dead pokies.|
|Daryl got involved and built a fancy, pokie-killing machine.|
|Instead of the hand-held sprayer I now have a 25 gallon tank...|
