Ground ivy, also called creeping Charlie, prefers shady, moist areas of a garden with low fertility, but in addition grows in sunny areas. Stems unfold over the bottom like ivy, rooting at leaf nodes (the place leaves connect to the stem). This aggressive perennial weed is hard to beat. Use a post-emergent herbicide to spray vegetation. Follow bundle instructions rigorously for treating creeping Charlie. Be certain to use subsequent purposes as required. When you kill off creeping Charlie, set up grass rapidly to forestall the weed from returning.
