Dicrondra – Kidney Weed

I have a kidney weed ground cover instead of lawn. Unfortunately, I put too much fertilizer on it and it burnt. How can I revitalize it or do I need to dig it out?

Thanks, Judy

I would give it a good watering to help flush out the fertilizer. In theory, it should come back. It is a pretty hardy plant that is difficult to completely kill. But your yard may look pretty sparse for awhile and I am not sure how long you want it to look like that.

I Got Dichrondra Grown in Poorly Drained Soil

They grow very slowly. What can I do to get them grow faster?

My Lawn

What is this plant that is taking over my lawn very quickly and does anybody know how I get rid of it? It looks like something you would expect to see on the top of a pond?
Thanks

Dichrondra Lawn

It’s been growing quite well but has patches that are quite yellow and one or two areas that are looking brown and seem to be dying ,what is the best thing to do please?

These areas could be infested with pests, such as moles or other underground rodents. You can take samples of soil to your local extension to find out if you have any deficiencies, or if your pH is out of balance in your soil.

Here are a couple of links that will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/extension-search/
