Under wet conditions weed killer doesn't work well -- if it's Round-up 
or its cousins, according to the label of the stuff we just got.  But 
thanks for the reference.  Lucinda
Lucinda, guess I certainly didn't mean under wet conditions. Rain 
itself would slow down or stop the Roundup from working. What I
had in mind was normal good-growing conditions, healthy grass. If
you proceed with your plan, tell us how it works out, ok? 

I made a terrible mistake a coupla years ago -- I mowed the lawn 
extra short prior to using Roundup on 2,000 sqft which were being
taken over by bent grass. THEN I read the Roundup label! It says
to have whatever you wish to kill off be as tall as possible, so there
will be more surface upon which to work. Bummer!
