Any suggestions for a weed killer product?

submitted on May 4, 2013 by YanBz in "Products / Gadgets"
It has been third year of the fight, me against dandelions and so far they are winning. Will anyone suggest a good weed control product for IL area? So far I have been using Scotts Ortho Weed‑B‑Gone but either it is not very effective or I am not applying it properly...

    I live in Indiana and am exactly where you are on the fight. I tried Menards Weed & Feed recently and have done one application to my front yard with a spreader. Most of the dandelions were killed and didn't produce seed pods. I plan to use turfbuilder later and find a broad leaf weed killer spray that will help with the war.

    Menards has some helpful info on their website under lawn care:

      Thanks for the link, here is an article in particular about weed and feed type of application:

      I will try to follow this rule now (and I fully realize how this can be tricky when you only have weekends to do it):

      Prior to applying the Weed & Feed product, your lawn needs to be damp, either through rainfall within the previous 24-48 hours or through watering the day before application. It is also important that there is no rain predicted for 24-48 hours after application and that you do not water your lawn for 24-48 hours

    I can rent my Mother out. Whenever she visits she is out in my front yard at 7am pulling my weeds. My neighbors think I am horrible. I beg her to stop but she won't.

      She might do it for free. She says "you have to keep up with these or they will keep coming." Rocks or rockscape. Cool

    Preen works pretty good in my garden beds, not sure if they make something for lawn though.

    My dog does the trick wonderfully, she goes outside, and a few days later those weeds are dead.

    Of course the surrounding grass seems to suffer the same fate, so I'm still working the kinks out of my weed killing plan.
