    I also suffered with Creeping Charlie! 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 Charlie and he lawn came back stronger than ever. I still get some Charlie coming back every so often, so I pull out what I can and spot spray it along with other weeds as general maintenance.

    The only thing that works for me is a spray called trimec . For creeping charlie mix one ounce in a gallon sprayer and spray again in 7-10 days. Sometime hard to find,

    but Fleet Farm usually has it.

    Your best bet is to pull them up by the roots.
