I have has good luck with Ortho's Weed-B-Gone, follow label directions. Borax does work, The former owners of the property I bought last year, left a quart of Fert A Loam 'Weed free Zone' spray that attaches with a garden hose. Don't know how old it is, but t price sticker show's $49.99. Good luck so far.
Hint; when using any spray, its best to apply it during a prolonged dry spell, with no rain for several day's, before and after spraying.
Dont mow for several day's before or after spraying
Don't mow too short, the more weed leaves that allowed to grow before spraying, the better the herbicide will penetrate into the plant system

Creeping Charlie

Boy did I learn about this stuff the hard way! I purchased a house and I have lived there now for one year. The house had been vacant for a couple years before I moved in and I later learned the previous owners did not tend to the yard all that much. Needless to say I had a jungle that needed taming! I figured I would start this year by using the Scotts 4-step plan, however... I have a serious case of creeping charlie and from what I understand it is very difficult to get rid of (Scotts Weed And Feed didn't even phase it). I have seen reference on various web sites to using Borax to kill it off, but is this really neccesary? If I overseed will the new grass eventually put a choke hold on Charlie or will Charlie not let new grass grow? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
