Absolutely the right approach Artjak - it's the only way.  It also works with children - consistent boundaries that is - not spraying with water - although it did get my teenage son out of bed on a school day

Clearing Lilly of the valley.

Not sure how Lily of the Valley reacts to glyphosate but it works on most things.  If I lived nearer I'd come and get some of them for my garden - I love them. 

My concern is that you want to plant lavender in its place.  If Lily of the Valley is happy that indicates to me that the soil is damp and heavy and the situation shady. 

Lavender needs gritty free-draining soil and full sunshine all day.

Vandalism!

When you didn't post this morning I feared the worst .............................

is it too late to overseed my lawn?

The temps are still quite mild, the gound is damp and we've apparently got a warm spell this weekend - sounds to me as if the time is ideal - I'd do it now.
