    Either rake the clippings or get a leaf blower so you can move all the clippings to one area

    I also suffered with weeds. At one point, two thirds of my lawn was taken over. I tried everything under the sun. I finally tried Spectracide Weed and Feed. I mixed a much stronger solution than the instructions said. Used a handheld sprayer and really wet the "lawn" down with no rain scheduled for the next few days. Killed the weeds and the lawn came back stronger than ever. I still get some weeds coming back every so often, so I pull out what I can and spot spray it along with other weeds as general maintenance.

    Hi Elizabeth! It is hard when you do not have a catcher for your lawnmower. You can order one if you are able to figure out the mower number, etc. Home Depot, Lowe's could help you! A blower, a good rake all will help you accomplish this. Also, we use Roundup because it does the best for us controlling weeds. I am also sending you a link. Good luck to you!! Merry Christmas!!
