Pet Safe Weed Killers

Q: We need a pet safe weed killer that will control dandelions but leave our fescue and bermuda alone. What do you recommend? 

A: Products that contain chelated iron, FeHEDTA (Natria Lawn Weed Control, Fiesta, etc. ), will give reasonable control of dandelions after three applications at 21 day intervals. You won’t kill 100% of the broadleaf weeds but I think you’ll be pleased. Chelated iron is considered a very safe herbicide.
