Applying grass and weed killer (also known as herbicides) can help control unwanted plant growth in your garden or lawn. Here are some general steps to follow:
Choose the right product: There are many different types of herbicides on the market, each designed to target specific types of plants or growth stages. Read the product label carefully to ensure you are selecting the right product for your needs.
Wear protective clothing: Herbicides can be harmful to skin and eyes, so it’s important to wear protective clothing such as gloves, long-sleeved shirts, and pants. It’s also a good idea to wear safety goggles to protect your eyes.
Mix the herbicide: Follow the instructions on the product label carefully to mix the herbicide with water or other diluents as required.
Apply the herbicide: Herbicides can be applied using a sprayer or a watering can. Be sure to apply the herbicide evenly to the affected areas, taking care not to apply too much or too little. Avoid spraying on windy days to prevent the herbicide from drifting onto other plants.
Wait for the herbicide to work: Herbicides take time to work, so be patient. Depending on the product, you may need to wait a few days to several weeks to see results.
Repeat as necessary: If you still have stubborn weeds or grasses after the first application, you may need to reapply the herbicide. However, be sure to read the product label to determine the appropriate waiting period between applications.
Dispose of excess herbicide safely: Any leftover herbicide should be disposed of properly. Follow the instructions on the product label for safe disposal methods.
For Best Results
For best results, apply on a warm, sunny day when daytime temperature is above 60F and no rainfall is forecast for 24 hours. Because this herbicide will kill all green plants, including lawn grass, it is not recommended for spot spraying in lawns.
Mixes Easily With Water
Use 1.5 ounces (3 tablespoons) of concentrate in 1 gallon of water for general weed control. For tougher weed control of perennials or brush, mix 2.5 ounces (5 tablespoons) in 1 gallon of water. One gallon of ready -to-use equivalent will cover 300 square feet.
Kils To The Root
Be sure to spray the foliage of the treated plants and avoid any spray mist drifting to plants you do not wish to treat. Glyphosate is absorbed through the foliage and travels to the root to kill the plant.
No Residual Activity
Glyphosate is a post-emergent herbicide. It will not prevent new or future growth. Treated areas can be replanted in as little as one day in ornamental areas. See the label for a complete list of when to replant fruits and vegetables.
