BWaaaahahahahahaha! YOU think YOU can eliminate creeping charlie?
Mankind has been trying to eliminate cc for thousands of years and no
solution short of a 5 kiloton nuke has bee found to be effective for
more than two weeks.

Good luck trying, sucker.

Great advice..NOT! If Brandon is talking about ground ivy (commonly
called creeping charlie), then wee b gone will control it. It will
require more than one application, and the biggest problem is
eliminating the source. i/e it's usually vining from surrounding
property or beds.

I'm in central Iowa. Weed and feed seemed to have no effect on the
creeping charlie. I had a pro spray company come in the first year. Cost
about $100.00 for 3 treatments. They killed it although for the first
month it looked like the creeping charlie was still healthy. Then one
morning I went into the yard to nothing but brown creeping charlie and
bare spots. Raked the creeping charlie carcasses and reseeded the bare
spots. A little weed b gone, spot sprayed, twice a year in a 2 gallon
pressure sprayer and the creeping charlie has been under control for 15
years despite my neighbors refusal to spray his yard. Spring seems to be
the best time to spray creeping charlie.
Also, it seems to help if you keep your grass at 2" or longer. Keeps it
thicker and the weeds can't get a good purchase on the soil.

My neighbor used Roundup and it killed the creeping charlie and all of
the grass around it. I used Weed-B-Gon Chickweed, Clover and Oxalis
Killer for Lawns and it just killed the creeping charlie. The regular
Weed-B-Gon takes two or three applications to kill it.

Multiple applications of a liquid weed control in the spring when it's
actively growing.Wait 2 weeks between applications. A selective herbicide is
what you want, not a non-selective one which will kill the grass as well.
