Wild strawberry weed

Asked May 17, 2018, 1:23 PM EDT

How would you suggest getting rid of wild strawberries growing in the grass? I don't like to use poisons but do plan to make the area drain better so there won't be standing water.

You can pull or dig up the plants if it is a small infestation. If it is a large area and manual removal is not feasible, you can spot-treat the weeds with a liquid, selective, post-emergent herbicide. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/indian-mock-strawberry
