Kathy, right, we have the broad leaf stuff growing in our lawns, the sword leaf type grows in the gardens. It is a nasty to try to get rid of for sure. Sometimes on a summer day when I am doing nothing, well, that is rarely, but I will sit with a little knife in my hands and clear out the broadleaf on my lawn by hand. Now my lawn is so big it would take years to do it this way, but I can get the "patches" of plantain a little less dense and the grass sure grows nicer. It is a relaxing thing to do, I find the oddest things relaxing. I grab the leaves and make them into a bunch in my hand and then pry out the root, it does a pretty darn good job of removal and boy does the grass appreciate this little bit of help. Have the best day, Cindi.
