Default Killing Dandelions

Hello all,

Now that I've moved to a rural setting, is there any chemical or
treatment that I can use to kill off my two acres of dandelions without
contaminating my well (and the neighbor's also)?

The grass seems to be pretty thick and well-established; the lawn just
wasn't taken care of for the past couple of years. Wide open with only
a few immature trees but tons of the yellow stuff. Despite what my wife
says, I ain't eating them.

Regards,
Andy

Just eat them, they're good for you, as long as you haven't sprayed them
with chemicals.

Believe it or not you can use a commercial weed killer without any risk to
your well water or your family's health if you read and follow the
instructions. Hell you can even screw up a bit and still be safe.
