Sand Stickers; What a problem on bare feet and I like to be bare footed. These things grow well in bad soil. I did a bit of reading on this last summer and found out that most, if not all, sticker weeds thrive in poor soil. So you have to make your yard richer, but don’t throw your pocket change in it. Add compost—not fertilizer—to your yard and especially the areas that have the sand stickers, in the winter to very early spring. Heavy compost can burn your grass, so easy does it. Pick up a few bags, or a pickup bed full, from your local home improvement store spread it around somewhat evenly with a shovel. You don’t want big piles of the stuff, and yes it does smell a bit but that will lessen and diminish in a couple days. Natural rain fall is best but if that is not happening water a bit to help marry it into your soil. It may take doing this more than once, but your yard will thank you and so will the bottom of your feet. Happy upcoming summer.
