2-4D, dicamba, and mcpp for the most part, we only treat as needed.
The only prevention is the pre-e crabgrass control, and the fertilizer
helps turf density..less room for weeds.
They make a decent product, liquid weed control works a lot
better than the dry. If you continue to have vining weed
problems such as ground ivy, try some liquid weed b gone
from Ortho. It sticks to the weeds -much- better.

what worked for me was a combination attack. Broadleaf weed killer, bend

block out the sun.., fertilize and water the grass to make it strong,
healthy and "take over" the creeping charlie,moneywort or ground ivy. I
had quite an infestation earlier this year with about maybe 1or 2%
remaining in my bermuda (memphis) lawn.
