Controlling Chickweed/What Encourages It to Grow
I have an abundance of chickweed in my backyard every summer. I make efforts to pull it all up by hand, but that's near impossible. I have dogs that go out in the backyard, so I am hesitant to use harsh weed controlling chemicals. I would like to know what seems to encourage it to grow, as I did not have it prior to having three small dogs that go outdoors to do their business. I clean after them regularly - but winter seems to have a build up until spring melt. I also have bird feeders out all winter. Please let me know the best organic method of controlling this mad weed!
