Re: Weird tiny flowers all over lawn!!??

Hit them with Borax -- it works very well. Google a bit for details on what concentration to use.

It's very difficult to get Borax to dissolve though -- don't add it directly to your sprayer. I'd suggest mixing 1 part Borax to 4 parts water and heating it over the stove, but still be prepared to have problems with your sprayer clogging. For the first application I'd also recommend adding 2,4D (weed-b-gon, etc.) into the mix.

Once you get it hit you'll find it goes away for a very long time.

Dick and Ann, the neighborhood Mallard ducks, like it. You can tell where they have been by the lack of it flowering.
