What actually kills creeping Charlie without damage to lawn. I've tried high doses of trimec classic and plus with very little results. :? It's like I'm battling the walking dead, dam charlie comes back strong.

Ortho weed b gon chickweed, clover, and oxalis killer will also kill creeping charlie. May need two or three applications, safe for the lawn

It's chickweed http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9 ... 6RQ1Ps4jXx One of the hardest weed to kill in lawn. Allot of herbicide states it'll kill creeping charlie but little does. As of now I've used double the strength of trimec to kill weeds, so far charlie is winning the battle. :wtf:

Simple fix, I'm guessing it's green when you mow it & looks good from a distance, just start taking care of it, fertilize & water it & pretend you love it. It will die in short order. :lol: :o

2-4-5-T is what we used to use, but I don't think its available any more, Timec 3D should do the job, it works better in warmer weather.

Dig it up by hand or live with it. Chemicals can kill a lot more than weeds.
