I am hoping Uber can respond to this.

Whats growing in my yard (see image)? Is it too late to kill them? I put down Scotts Turf Builder with Halts a few weeks ago. How long should I wait to put down something new?

Thank you.

Consider spot treating rather than broadcasting broadleaf herbicide over the entire area.
It's best to have adequate soil moisture, but no rain for 24 hours after application. Don't mow for few days before and after application.
There are a number of broadleaf weed herbicides (weed killers) available for use on lawns to control clover.
Choices found in Lowes typically include 2,4-D (2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid); mecoprop or MCPP (2-(2-methyl-4-chlorophenoxy) propionic acid); or dicamba (3,6-dichloro-o-anisic acid); with two and three-way combinations available.

I see a four leaf clover too

Get one of the lawn weed killers & have at it, but read the labels, it might kill the clover. If you want to kill the clover, no worries.

Sunny, the lawn weed killers don't kill grass. Lawn and weed killers do.

I think he means that there will be alot of bare areas because it looks like there is more chickweed and clover in the pic than actual grass.
