Get Rid of Virginia Buttonweed

Here are a combination of tactics to manage the plant that include:

  1. Hand removal. (Small patches can be hand-pulled, but care must be taken to remove all the above-ground stems and below-ground roots. This plant can re-establish from small plant parts that remain in the lawn. If you see this weed start to flower, remove it as fast as possible.)
  2. Keeping your lawn tall and lush to help crowd out seeds.
  3. Being careful not to overwater (Virginia Buttonweed likes moist, wet conditions).
  4. Make sure you are treating your soil with good organic fertilizers and compost to ensure it stays healthy.
