    No, not that type of weed ya bunghole!

    This garbage (weed with the big leaves) is growing in my lawn, but I want to ensure I put the right thing down to kill it without killing the grass it's already strangling to death.

    Well, I see the problem. You apparently planted Basil instead of Weed. It's a common mistake Sam, no worries......

    lol, it's basil? It must have spread from an area where the previous owner had planted stuff like this, mint, and other things.

    Ugh, how do you get rid of basil from your grass other than hand pulling it?!??!

    I read that over watering basil is bad. Well, it's been raining like mad yet this stuff does not look like it's dying. Damnit.

    Well, I think the English use a lot of Basil in their stuff. Maybe you go out and find you a British Chef to Marry?

    Broadleaf Plantain
    [​IMG]

    Broadleaf Plantain has green, oval to egg-shaped leaves that grow in a rosette. They have thick stems that meet at a base and when the stems are broken, they reveal string-like veins that resemble those in celery.

    They can produce a lot of seed so they spread across your property very rapidly. They also spread from one area of your lawn to another by hitching a ride when you mow your lawn.

    If you only have a few plants they are easy to dig using a shovel. Best control is done in the fall using a herbicide that is labeled for broadleaf control like 2,4-D and several others.

    Normally I would take offence and get all patriotic like but Basil Brush is terrible. What I had to put up with as a kid in the name of entertainment was inexcusable.
