Beginner question....

Post by Doctorbob91 » October 10th, 2022, 5:04 pm

I am in the midwest, Cincinnati OH.

My lawn has creeping Charlie, which I tried to treat earlier this year.
There are other weeds as well.
Also have some 'bald' areas and would like to seed.
And I am also usually battling moles or gophers as well.

What is my first step please?

A little housekeeping...

I know you put in your original posting that you're in Cincinnati, OH, but as you do postings over time that will become lost information. Please add that info to your Profile, so that it gets copied to all of your postings.

It looks like the OP might have moved on, but for the casual reader, one problem with the tenacious weeds is they reseed prolifically. You may have killed the plants which were growing, but seeds continue to germinate. Thus you have to repeat the treatment as soon as you see new weed growth and before it has a chance to reseed itself.
