Dandelions are a lot of fun, they grow incredibly fast, are very colorful, and grant wishes, what more could you want in a weed? Believe it or not the dandelion life if not for everyone. Let’s talk about what you can do to get rid of them!


By hand

It’s important to make sure you pull the entire weed out, this means getting it’s root system, otherwise it will just come right back in no time. To do this simple get a hand held spade and cut into the soil around the weeds to loosen the ground. Grab as low down as possible and pull gently until it’s out of the ground!


With Herbicide

Select any broad leaf herbicide and wait for a sunny day. Just spray away now! Wait until the weeds have browned and dried out before watering your yard again, pull out the dead weed and rake the ground around it. After 3 days plant more seed where the weeds were to fill in the spots.


It’s ok to miss them after they’re gone, they add a lot of color to your yard and can be a lot of fun, but ultimately they’re bad for your yard so they had to go! Want to read more on dandelion damage control? Read here!
