    Default Safe lawn care products?

    We are looking to take care of the weeds and dandelions in our yard but wondered if anyone knows of any products that are safe to use when you have pets? I am a new homeowner so don't have much experience with yard care in general and didn't want to subject Tayto to some nasty chemicals unknowingly.

    Thanks!

    Manual!!! Lol. Not much would really be safe imo. I do it by hand. Just don’t trust anything out there. The safe one for pets, well won’t kill much.

    Take someone else's soup ladle and collect some bulldog urine and pour on the weeds. I've always thought that it might make awesome vegetation killer considering what it does to my fescue.
    Good luck with it...

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    Dandelions are the best for cleansing our insides. You can always dry them n have a cup of tea!

    Thanks!
    Pull them all by hand , there is no "safe " product . The dandelion products are corn based and the dogs and others love em .
    They have so called " put on and play " with the cute pic of kids on the packaging, all that is a fine ground product , that they hope falls thru the grass to the dirt so it does not come into contact with there kids skin , I have looked at them all .
    I did find a vinegar spray product ( made by the vinegar companies ) to kill dandelions and it worked well and the smell keeps the dogs away , but be accurate when you spray it will kill the grass too .
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    What about safe outdoor bug sprays? The weather is changing so it's time for spiders, earwigs, ants, etc. @helsonwheels is there an EO mix or something I can spray around the house?

    I spray the grass. Depends of the mixture you do. Example, cloves is strong n can burn the plant. I recall mixing cloves n cayenne pepper cause of damm jack rabbits eating all my front flowers. Little bastards eat all fresh newly leaves n leaves the stems. On plants you can mix lavender, peppermint with water.
