    you may not appreciate this answer but it's just about foolproof when it comes to getting rid of weeds, especially dandelions. I call it my "butt therapy time" because I sit down on a garden knee pad (for comfort) and take a long knife (or if your hubby kept his military sabor-like knife) and use the knife to go deep to get the complete root of the dandelion! Neighbors used to laugh as they'd drive/walk by, but I haven't seen a dandelion in MY yard for years. I will say though, until most of your neighbors get rid of their dandelions, it's being on constant lookout to keep them from sprouting in your yard!

    You can buy an applicator specially meant for delivering hot water. It holds quite a bit of hot water and kills the root without the use of chemicals. Price? Can't tell you.


    I sprayed every colony of dandelions i had with Round Up. The spray was too wide for the plant and i ended up with 'holes' in my lawn til the grass grew back. LOL. Check specific weed killers with local nursery.
