Chickweed in lawn
So I renovated my 4k sq ft backyard last fall. I've been trying to abstain from any chemicals, other than an initial roundup before laying topsoil and seeding last fall. I did experiment with some EcoSense in a few spots.
Anyway, I have a relatively large chickweed invasion. I tried pulling some out with a thatch rake and it seemed to thin it out, but I'm not sure if it just allowed the chickweed to grow better also.
The grass is growing pretty well in most of these areas so I guess my question is... Will this chickweed die in the summer? What should be my plan of attack? I am currently doing an overseed here too to thicken it up even more. but the frequent watering is probably bad for the chickweed.
So should I keep trying to pull it out? Or just let it go through summer and overseed in fall again? I'm in south jersey and we can get some pretty hot stretches.
