Weed Killer recommendation specifically for "Buttercup"

Asked January 17, 2017, 12:08 PM EST

I live in Fayette County and last summer I developed a lot of yellow buttercup weed in my yard. I attempted to kill the weed with spray weed killers denoting the buttercup weed. I apparently have over sprayed because I now have a lot of bare yard. Could you recommend a good weed killer and/or a procedure for removing weeds and the appropriate procedure for reseeding my yard. I shall look forward to your response at your earliest convenience. Gratefully yours, Rich Maier rmaier3@verizon.net 724-437-6737

Penn State's publication Weed Management in Turf (http://extension.psu.edu/publications/uc189) gives information on life cycle, control measures, and timing on a wide variety of lawn weeds (including buttercup).
