We have some weed killer, I will check the ingred's.today before I buy anymore.

Think I need a weed killer for lawns, don't want to kill my grass!

Thanks all for your replies !

Barb, you need to rake or use a leaf blower on your lawn soon after they fall. Or if your mower has a bagger, use that.

Make sure you get a chemical that's safe for lawns. :)

Try painting 1/2 dozen leaves on each tree with Round Up. Be sure to wear rubber gloves, and paint both side of the leaf. I know this sounds tiresome but in a week or so those seedling will be dead down to the last root.

Also known as a judicious application of Roundup, as I suggested earlier. I put mine in a sprayer contraption - the sprayer apparatus has a teeny squirter part so that you can spray the stuff just where you want it to go without killing everything else nearby.
