Do yourself a favor and go get PREEN - you must apply it Feb, May, Aug and Nov (yes I know this is September do it NOW0, be generous - the bottle covers 900 sq ft - do not try to stretch it. put the preen down, spray existing weeds and wait a week - then go spray weeds that are up do this consecutively for 4 weeks, - if you have a lot of little weeds pop up in an area after 4 weeks, put down more preen just in that location as it may not have distributed evenly. Now you should be able to go about your day and treat weeds monthly.
I hope this helps
interesting and good advise, thanks.
