Well, I need some help. I have got to get my yard back to looking good and it looks horrible right now. Yard is all Bermuda and has weeds all in it, with the majority being a weed that has purple flowers and looks more like a small plant. I was thinking of spraying the yard with round up while the grass is still dormant, but how long does it need to be on the weed before it rains? What suggestions do you have? And no, not worrying about it is not a answer...I like the yard to look nice. Help me out guys.

Get whatever Scott's has to kill out the weeds and such. I have used tons of different brands but it outperforms all of them.

Let me get this straight....You want MORE grass to grow in your yard?? WHY? You'll just have to mow it more.

if the roundup dries on the plants then you are good to go, mix a little "Dawn" in your spray solution and it will stick better to the weeds, it will probably be 12-15 days this time of the year before you start to see anything yellowing up

Its probably henbit. Roundup is effective when temps are about 60. Otherwise not as good. Go ahead and try it or use some fertilome or scotts or the home depot or lowes brand you put out with a spreader. But honestly its normal for some weeds t shoot thru before Bermuda greens up.

Most version's of round-up are rainfast in 1-2 hours. Best time to spray is when the plants are actively growing and not stressed as it will not be as effective. The round up will kill your grass. If the weeds are growing I do not think your grass is dormant. How tall is this plant? If it is tall enough I would mow it down. Most weeds tend to die out after repeated mowings but that depends if the plant derives it's rejuvenation from it's roots or from seed. You state that it has a flower so I assume it is from seed. Where did this weed come from? Is your neighbours yard/land full of this weed? If using round-up try to get the farm version of it as the other stuff is quite watered down. I do not know what other stuff you have to choose from down there but I would recomend identifing what kind of weed this is and look at alternatives to round-up as round-up will kill everything green that it touches. Be cautious with other products as well because they may have a residual time; meaning they will stay in the soil for extended lengths of time. This can make it frustrating if you want to plant flowers, garden and such. I would take a sample of the weed to your local agricultural input supplier or lawn and garden place and ask them for recomendations. Good Luck.

Bermuda will choke out a lot of the weeds if you had a good standing to begin with, but like said above,,,,,,some weeds are coming out now and wont stay long anyway, I would wait to put anything out until the weather warms a bit, as most wont do much this cool weather

Possibly chickweed and it will disappear as temps warm. You can spray it but it just turns yellow and stops growing. Obviously your weeds standout in that whitish bermuda. Hard to be weed free year round.
