Paging Bootlegger—- Weed Help (New Pictures Added)
My entire yard is infected with clover, crabgrass, and whatever the hell this shite is....

Is there something I can apply to the entire yard using my 25 gallon fourwheeler pump sprayer? I am assuming since the grass is dormant that nothing would harm it.

Yard is a mixture of St.Aug and Bermuda.

Also mixing ratios since I’m being lazy would be helpful as well

Are you sure there is grass in there?

I was letting the dog out and happened to take this picture while standing under a tree, there isn’t much grass there. But my entire yard is full of it

My backyard Is in similar shape. I bought a large bag of weed and feed that I’m going to put out after it dries up a bit. After that I want to plant more seed and then put down some feed

24d helped me a bit with dollar weed etc. My clover looks healthy as can be though. Not sure anything kills it.

I’ve sprayed mine with Weed Free Zone 3 times and it’s still going strong

I see all kinds of shite there, and none of it is grass. Hit that shite hard with a 2,4-D product (WeedFreeZone, Trimec, Speedzone). The poa (thin grass with white seed head) will die when it warms up. Or you can spray it with Simazine now.

Let me know which chemical you go with, and I can assist with application rates.

Here are some pics of the actual yard situation

Would any of the above products take care of crabgrass too?

Also are they all similar or is one better than the other?

Get all them broadleaves under control. Crabgrass shouldn't be but just starting to germinate right now. A big box store crabgrass preventer is still applicable.

For the broadleaves
1. Speedzone (4 way herbicide)
2. Trimec (3 way herbicide)
3. WeedFreeZone (generic/homeowner 3 way)
4. plain 2,4-D

I’m gonna go with Speedzone then...

Application rate would be what? My problem is I don’t know the flow out of my sprayer.... I can only dial in the discharge pressure.

Speedzone may be restricted, I'm not sure, just FYI.

And yeah, if you're going to start using potent selective herbicides, calibration will be necessary. Although right now turfgrasses are dormant enough to be a little on the strong side. The Speedzone is labeled for .75oz - 1oz per gallon for spot spraying.

There is no way I can spot spray all this.... it would take forever...

This is basically my set up..... does that change the application rate?

Can be laid year-round, but I prefer spring. Takes fertilizer more readily and establishes quick with soil temps above 70-75°
