The waxy coating on ground ivy, wild strawberry, and wild violet leaves causes weed control products to quickly run off these leaves after application, with little chemical being taken in by the plants. For this reason, these three aggressive and invasive plants are extremely difficult to control and often will require “specialty” type weed control products to help provide management of these plants.
These products are typically very costly to apply.
With ordinary weed control treatments, little or no control is common. It is for this reason that if you would like to discuss alternative measures to help rid your lawn of this vegetation, then please call our office at PA: 215-364-7000 or NJ: 800-363-8165 to discuss the proper action required.
