Zone 6A – I have a backyard that was nothing but tall, thick-stem weeds. We burned everything last fall but a lot of the seeds remained. (Seeds are pinhead size with “legs” that grasp our dogs coat as they walk in the back yard.) What can I do this spring to ensure the weeds don’t come back and also plant sod this spring???? Thanks for your help.
