I am a senior living in Edmonton in a modular home park. I rent the
lot. When I moved in last year I did not have the time to address the
lawn. This year I want to make it my priority. Approximately 1/3 of
the grass is clover and I have been told that applying Killex properly
will address that. My larger problem is the dandelions. They cover
most of the lawn. I started digging them out. A person would need a
tourist visa because some of the roots I am sure go to China.
Actually, they are approximately 1 foot deep. There are many many
dandelions. I hired a young boy to help, but the job is too big. I
have purchased Roundup, Killex, Weed out and Wipe out. I've used
Killex and Weed out on the dandelions. My question is, will these
products soak down to the dandelion roots 1 foot, or do I continue to
dig them out? The holes in the lawn are many and deep. I can get
soil and I was going to dry out the soil and spray it with killex
prior to filling these holes up so I don't end up with the same
problem. Is this the way to go?
I've told the young boy to put everything on hold until I find out
more about these products and if they will really work. I only want
to do the heavy maintenance once. Afterwards, general care is no
I also have fairy ring, and I was told by Holes to dig many holes deep
into the ground and put a mixture of Ivory soap and water on them
continuously. I started doing that. I have 3 fairy rings. I've been
told by many people that it is literally impossible to get rid of fair
ring. Any suggestions other that what I am doing?
With all the products I've purchased, I really can't afford anything
else. If elbow grease is the answer, then I will continue digging
I've also the appropriate fertilizer as well as grass seed which I am
sure will be fine once the weeds are gone.
Your help is greatly appreciated. I want to get started asap.
Thank you for listening and I look forward to your response. (I think)
