Help.

I thought the cold would get rid of my clover and chickweed problem but they are still growing. I put down one application of "weed b gone" in September but that didnt help at all. Any ideas on how to get rid of them?

Thanks!

Frank, cold weather doesn't kill either. It is too cold to spray, though. Short of pulling it, you can only wait.

I'll trade you your clover for my signal grass.

Ha. No thanks.

I am worried the only solution is to tear up the whole yard and start from scratch....

Just wait it out, it will be okay with a little work. The batch of seed I used this year must have been a joke on me. I think they put clover seed instead of fescue in the bags I bought. YEEAASHHH!

We did an overseed the week after Halloween and I seeing the little green shoots of new grass popping up all over now. I just hope it all "takes" before the winter sets in.
