I've had the best luck pulling it out the bulk of it by hand. Then just
fluffing it up with a garden rake before I mow (so the lawn mower blade can
catch it.) It's a lot easier than it sounds -- at least in a lawn and
vegetable garden. I haven't figured out how to get it out of my creeping
sedum. I'll probably take a bunch of sedum cuttings, then spray the whole
area with Roundup. I can replant the sedum with the cuttings.

Best regards,
Bob

Now is the time of year to spray it, from mid May till mid June, whenever
you see it's purple flowers. Spray it with an herbicide that contains
trimec. Did this last year successfully. Did a repeat this year to catch the
small amt of creeping charlie that returned. Also got the dandelions and
other broadleaf weeds. Vetoed the idea of using borax, as it can build up in
surrounding turf and create a dead zone if you do too much of it.

Creeping Charlie also put out a ton of seeds.

Couple of years ago I used an ice cream bucket lid
with a 1/2" hole in the center and then cut the
lid from the outside to the hole.

I then pulled the charlie vines out from the grass to form
a clump still attached to the root. The lid went under
the clump and was sprayed with roundup.

Grass lived charlie died and then seeds did not
get back into the lawn as they were colledted on
the lid.

A lot of work. My lawn looked like something from nasa
for a while. Maybe that's way the neighboors stopped
talking to me, ya think?
