How to Control Dandelion Invasion?

Dandelion Management Guidelines - UC IPM

Because dandelion seed can be windborne for several miles, prevention of new infestations is difficult. Solitary new dandelion plants along fence rows, roadsides, flower beds, and in turfgrass should be grubbed out (digging out the entire plant, taproot and all) before they produce seed.  In the home landscape, dandelion plants can easily be grubbed out, especially when they are young. Dandelion knives and similar specialized tools are available for removing individual weeds and their roots while minimizing soil disturbance. Control dandelion plants before they set seed to reduce the potential for further invasion by this weed.  No single control procedure has been successful in controlling dandelion in turfgrass. Early grubbing of new seedlings has been successful when practiced diligently. These plants must be dug up regularly for several years to be successfully eliminated. Spot spraying isolated plants with glyphosate can be helpful, but the turfgrass is killed, leaving open areas. Overseed the open spots to establish a vigorous turf sod.

Weed Control - Dandelion - University of Nebraska Lincoln

Dandelion, Taraxacum officinale, is probably the most widely recognized turfgrass weed. It is a weed that was imported as an ornamental plant from Europe. Dandelion seed was available to the pioneers for ornamental plantings and were sometimes used on the roofs of sod houses to make them stand out on the prairie.  Dandelions can be controlled by hand pulling or digging when small numbers are present. Use a dandelion digger to cut the taproot off 4-5 inches below the crown of the plant to prevent regrowth.  Herbicide applications are another common way to control dandelions. If only a few weeds are present in a lawn or landscaping bed, then apply a spot treatment. Spot treatment involves spraying each individual weed, and not broadcasting herbicide over the entire lawn.  In lawns and landscaping beds, 2,4-D can be used but will damage surrounding shrubs and other ornamental plantings if accidentally sprayed, or if spray mist drifts to them. So use it cautiously! Be certain you read all the label instructions and follow them carefully including the use of all necessary personal protective equipment.
