Having weed trouble in our lawn is annoying that’s one thing for sure. There are various types of weed which we can find outside on our yard. One of those weeds is the Creeping Charlie or we can call it with its complicated name Glechomahederacea or the easiest name is ground ivy. Well, Creeping Charlie can be easily found throughout North America. Actually, Creeping Charlie can only reach its highest height (vertically) for about 2 feet, but the problem is the fact that it can spread for lots of feet horizontally. So, when you find this ground ivy on your lawn, how to get rid of this Creeping Charlie then? Ok, seems that you need my help badly, let’s roll!
Firstly, get your hands gloved and then get the Creeping Charlie pulled manually. Take it using whatever it takes, no exception. Secondly, Get the Creeping Charlie raked out from the lawn. This can be done using a standard rake or detaching rake. Get the tool dragged through the lawn for catching and then pulling the Creeping Charlie out from the ground. Get your lawn raked without leaving any part and do it often in order to make sure there is no Creeping Charlie left. The best way is to get the root pulled as well, so the weed won’t grow back. Next thing you can do is by getting the Creeping Charlie with systemic broad-spectrum herbicide. By doing this the weeds will die for about 10 – 14 days and no growing back session in the future.
The last thing you can do for getting rid the Creeping Charlie is getting your lawn mowed down extensively. You can use the standard mower or if you don’t have one, a string trimmer can also get the job done. Good luck folks!
