Ron from Modesto, Ca writes

Should I use Drive XLR8 or Turflon Esther for to treat oxalis?

I use XLR8 for crabgrass, and Turflon Ester for bermuda grass (it knocks it back, but doesn't kill it). I have a lot of oxalis and spotted spurge infesting my lawns. (They are a fescue blend of sod.) I am in central California, Modesto area. I don't want to buy another product if I don't have to. Which one would work best for spotted spurge and oxalis? XLR8 or Turflon Ester? Thanks for your help!


Drive XLR8 is not labeled for either spurge or oxalis.  Turflon Ester will is labeled for oxalis but will not treat for spurge.  You may want to consider a product like Dismiss that will eradicate both types of weeds.
