    Just moved into a house that had a huge sycamore in the back garden. Have had it removed as it was a bit of an eyesore and blocked out sunlight from the main garden. The thing is it dropped a load of it's seeds onto the lawn before it was removed and they have now begun to sprout. The entire lawn is covered with them. I've tried pulling the little things out by hand (they're about 3-4cm tall) but they seem quite soft and snap off. This leaves part of their roots in the ground. Will that root re-grow or will it just die. I'm looking for a way to remove them without them coming back. I'd originally planned to pull them all out by hand, but as they snap off rather than coming fully out, I'm wondering if I should try some sort of weed killer. I could leave them to grow a bit bigger, but I need to start doing something about the rest of the lawn that needs sorting out. It's covered with moss and growth is a bit patchy.

    While I'm at it, anyone have any good links to pages about lawcare.

    Thanks.
    (Don't ask about the sycamore stump that was left over. Hardest substance known in the universe.)
