    It should be easily controlled to be honest but it needs to be actively growing for a selective herbicide to work well. If you tried to treat it in lower temps the success rate drops. I would now wait till the spring then see how the grass is and go from there.

    Thinking about redoing this lawn from scratch. What do you think?

    To be honest I would simply remove the whole lot and have it removed and start fresh. It’s almost a job for a little mini digger.

    The one's in our garden are trustworthy, but they have no links to money, just the food I put out for them :)To quote Ronny Barker "they dug another tunnel and put the soil down there" :biggrin:
