    Spray with 1 cup water. One cup of vinegar and 2 drops of dish soap stirred together. Water plants, then spray after watering or rain until gone.

    Hi Trin,

    Creeping charlie is an invasive plant that drives a lot of us crazy. ;) It's hard to remove because if you leave even a small piece of root behind, that will cause it to start growing again. The vinegar can help if you can stay on top of it. Pulling the majority of it out will also help. Do both of them together and keep using the vinegar for the best success without chemicals. If you're not adverse to chemicals, this article will explain what works with creeping charlie. Wishing you the best.

    I'dput a security camera that views the entire area and whence showed up call 911 and have him arrested for trespassing.
