One product that is extremely effective in killing dandelions is One Earth Weed Control The ingredients in One Earth Weed Control consist of edible and plant based products plus a special form of iron. The spray also includes some naturally occurring chelating agents which means the nutrients in the fertilizer and soils become more available to the weed for uptake.

Warning About Drought Stressed Lawns
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT DROUGHT STRESSED LAWNS: One Earth Weed Control,very rarely, can cause temporary browning to turfgrass in drought stressed lawns or grass with shallow digging grass roots. This temporary browning only occurs in lawns that are not following the 1-2-3-2-1 lawn watering technique or in areas of the lawn with poor sprinkler coverage. The damage may last between 1-3 weeks depending on the overall health of the lawn, but the grass will recover by watering the damaged area thoroughly. This temporary damage only occurs in lawns that have shallow root systems, caused by improper watering techniques or poor sprinkler coverage. If damage occurs hand water the damaged areas deeply for 3 consecutive days and we recommend a sprinkler audit to prevent the problem from ever happening again.

FAQ – One Earth Weed Control for Lawns
How does this organic weed control kill weeds in a lawn?
Basically dandelions and other broadleaf weeds in the lawn are killed because they can’t handle the nutrient overload and they metabolize them too quickly causing them to die. The ingredients in One Earth Weed Control function as catalysts for oxygen reduction, which causes the production of unstable and highly reactive oxygen radicals, such as hydroxyl radicals. This causes cellular damage within the plant causes the weed to die.
When is the best time of year to apply a weed killer for lawns?
Weeds are easiest to control when they are young, actively growing, and have abundant moisture. This tends to be in the springtime for most weeds and dandelions are easiest to kill from late April through May. The ideal time to apply a weed killer is shortly after a rain storm or when temperatures are cool. The reason for this is because the stoma (pores on leaves) of the plants are fully open and fully open stomata are very receptive to absorbing the weed killer.
One Earth Weed Control will get the best results on dandelions after a rain storm or after a lawn is thoroughly watered. Our full season lawn care programs are designed to apply the weed killers during the periods when weeds are most susceptible to weed control. The organic weed control applications are usually spaced out about 6-8 weeks apart. For fully mature weeds, multiple applications may be needed.

According to the Colorado Department of Agriculture it is illegal to claim that a weed killer is safe. Therefore, even though a product like our natural weed killer called One Earth Weed Control is made from only edible ingredients, we legally cannot say it is a safe for kids or pets.
