OP is in Ontario. 2,4d is Class 9 in Ontario. 2,4d is not allowed for cosmetic weed control. (If you can find somebody who sells it, they may not ask too many questions of why you want it, but you won't find it on the shelf.)

The active ingredient on what I suggested (Scotts ecosense Weed B Gone) is "Iron (present as FeHEDTA) 4.43%" --- its allowed. When your landscaper uses it, its called Fiesta.

Ortho Weed B gone is different Stuff - Active Ingredients: Dimethylamine Salt of 2-Methyl-4-Chlorophenoxyacetic Acid (13.72%), Triethylamine Salt of 3,5,6-Trichloro-2-Pyrindnyloxyacetic Acid (1.56%), Dimethylamine Salt of Dicamba (3,6 Dichloro-o-Anisic Acid) (1.35%). Other Ingredients: (83.37%).

Boiling water works very well. Boil a kettle and apply to the weeds. The hot water melts the outer coating of the weed and it dies.
Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.

The weed B gone seems to have helped. Now I'm just left with lot of leafy stuff, I will apply some more and see what happens. I bought the concentrate this time, as I figure it will probably be easier to use my pump sprayer.
