Yard work? Are you nutz?
Call these guys, give them your address and ask them to fix it.
They'll know what to do.
Meanwhile, grab a fistful of singles and go enjoy a table dance.
Plants are different, in different regions. I'd suggest to talk to your
neighbors, and see what they use. Or, visit a couple lawn and garden places
in your nearest town or hamlet. What works for me, might not work for you.

Bro I live 30 miles from a TOWN period. Live in hills yonder way. Nobody
coming to my place and I don't wont nobody coming down my road at all. I
just want to know that to use to spray my yard.
Could you please be a little more ambiguous?
Characterize "all", exactly. (I know, it sounds a lot like a definition
of "what is, is" :) )
But do you really want _all_ grass/vegetation killed for a complete
restart or simply the non-desirable grasses (and which are non-desirables)?
You'll find if you're trying to eradicate a longterm established bermuda
that you've got a long, hard road ahead--in fact, it's almost impossible
owing to the profusion of seed and the propensity to come back from
rhizomes that are very difficult to kill entirely. Long-term shade is
about the only cost-effective way I know of (and that won't last if the
shade is removed eventually if there's a single sprig left anywhere).
Yes, lets get really stupid and anal about this. No, on the other hand,
let's approach it on a logical level. Go to the nursery. Call the local
agent. After that, there is always the seeds sown by alien spacecraft and
things that cannot be handled by normal means. You DID watch Alien 1, 2, 3,
4, 5, 6, as many as there were Rocky movies.
But, hey, farmers have been dealing with these things for hundreds of years,
so MAYBE, and I use that term loosely, let's listen to what others have done
None of this is new. Rocket surgery it is NOT.
Again, check with your county agent, or at least a knowledgeable nursery in
the area. I had a similar problem, and used over the counter Weed N' Feed,
and it reduced unwanted pests 90%. The second season, the grass was great,
and I could go out and dig out the occasional weeds in an hour. I have 2300
sf of grass.
YMMV, of course.
Don, Don, Don. Were you born stupid, or did you practice a lot? Spraying
foliage means spraying everything from fertilizer to herbicide to
insecticide. If one owns a large yard, they probably don't only spray
fertilizer. Please reread the last sentence. Now rereread it again. Now,
one last time for clarity.
Did you get it yet?
I'm sorry, but the job of netnanny is already taken in this group. There
are already several people who stand ready to jump on anyone who makes a
grammatical or spelling error, or syntax. You must file the proper
application and get in line if you want to be a netnanny here.
Otherwise, just read the posts, take what's there that fits you, and leave
Thanks. Like that ex-wife of mine who said if I didn't quit fishing and
drinking beer, she'd divorce me. I really don't miss her any, and doubt it
you will miss me, or I you.
Now, read Robert Macy's post regarding exactly what I said regarding
spraying Roundup. Oh, that's right, you can't see me. Oh, well, just as
I had an infestation of bermuda grass that went down over 6 feet!!
Everything did not work, until
Round Up! but two things:
1. Round Up is chemically active and requires special metals in the
sprayer, else a reaction occurs - I can attest to that!
[Or, Monsanto has figured out a different configuration and you can
use it in any sprayer, but CHECK!]
2. Apply on lush green growth in the spring as the energy comes out of
the roots, gorws green, and then tries to supply energy back into the
BUT! Don't rush it! Apply, watch, and apply again probably as much as
a week apart. That totally kills the grass.
I made the mistake of rushing it. Saw they died, or seemed to, tilled
the soil, and WHAT A MESS!!! Tilling the soil chopped up their stems
into tiny little seedlings! Almost EVERYONE of those !@#$#@! things
sprouted, and usually a foot under the top.
So be careful, and patient. But Round Up is pretty labor free.
