SOURCE: How much roundup do I use in a gallon of water to get a good kill

This will be hard to answer because roundup is sold in different strengths. On a dry morning mix a few ounces of round up to a gallon of water and test it by spaying it on some blades of grass. Results should be noticed after a few days.If you spent allot of money for just a little roundup then you probably have a strong solution. Some roundup is already mixed with water (diluted) and can be applied as is. I hope this helps

SOURCE: can you disperse a water and vinegar mixture with

If you do this the vinegar will likely disperse hard water scale as it cleans the inside of the element. While it shouldn't stain anything it will likely cause sputtering as it breaks down the scale. If your goal is to clean and disinfect a surface that is vinegar friendly, I would consider taking the extra step of spraying the surface with a spray bottle with the vinegar. Bleach in steam might puff back at you in a cloud and burn your eyes and skin so be VERY cautious on the bleach.

SOURCE: My husband used round-up on our lawn thinking it

A lot depends on what part of the country you are in and if you have cool season or warm season turf. Cool seasons are fescue, bluegrass, perennial rye, etc. Warm seasons are bermuda, zoysia, centipede, St. Augustine, just to name a few.

If its cool season turf, you could heavily aerify, fertilize, and re-seed right now. Hope for rain through the summer, or use irrigation of you have it. For my area, early fall is the best time for seeding cool season grasses. If it was only Roundup you should have no lingering effects from its application.

If its warm season turf, it may not actually be completely dead, especially if the application wasn't done properly. Your lawn may just be sick. It actually can take a lot of chemicals to permanently damage most warm season turf. If thats what you have, some water and fertilzer may improve the appearance. Beyond that, sprigging or sodding may be your only option, since not many warm seasons are available by seed.

Time will help both situations, especially the latter.

Want to kill grass is vinegar by itself enough ot do i add water to it


One quart of vinegar -- with 20 percent acetic acid -- mixed with 4 ounces of lemon juice will kill the above-ground portions of the weeds and grass. The foliage, flowers, buds and stems will wither, dry and die, but the weed's roots are left intact. For a tougher weed and grass kills, combine 1 tablespoon of 20 percent vinegar, 1 tablespoon of gin, 1 quart of water and 1 teaspoon of dish soap. This mixture kills the above-ground and below-ground portions -- including roots -- of the weeds.

Tip

A convenient way to kill individual weeds in your lawn


I purchase full strength roundup from places that sell fertilizers etc to farmers. I mix my own roundup per their recommendations plus a little. I fill a small eye drops bottle with my mixed roundup. I like this bottle because it has a small opening so I can squeeze out a drop at a time.. I carry the bottle of mixed roundup in my pocket, with the lid shut tight of course, and as I mow and I spot a weed I take out the bottle and place on or two drops on that weed. One drop of roundup on a leaf of a plant will kill it but I try to place one or two drops right in the middle of the plant. Roundup is fed to the root of the plant from the leaf kills the weed from the roots up. This works well because I can kill the weed without killing grass or other plants around it. Wind will not effect it because the roundup is place on the plant not sprayed on it. Roundup needs about 12 hours to work so do not water right away. Ready mixed roundup from a store may work, I have not tried it because I want to be sure the mixture is strong enough to do the job. About 4 ounces per gallon of water is recommended, I increase that to about 6 ounces. Works great.

What is the mixing rate for round up to kill broadleaf weeds such as thistle, parthenium etc so that I do not kill the grass


Any round up mix that will kill the weeds will kill the grass. the only way I can think of is to tie a sponge to a stick dip in round up and apply to each weed, you will not have to cover the whole weed, just touch a few leaves.

I will be applying Roundup to a large section of my lawn to kill a bermudagrass infestation. Will the Roundup work better on longer grass or a freshly mowed lawn?


Hi,
Round up will work on any grass...I prefer to mix it a bit stronger when I know I am trying to kill grass... but yes it works... ask my daughter who wanted to help and spray the weeds for me and then decides to play around in the yard writing her name....:-)
It can take a week for a full killl though...

I recently used ROUNDUP on a lawn The product did its job, the weeds are gone, so is some of the grass near the spray. It has not rained since the spay went on - maybe 10 - 12 days. How can I restore the...


Your grass is probably dead as well. Roundup is a non selective herbicide and will kill anything green. So take care when applying. Even green stems of young trees. Shield from spray when spraying. The best is to plant new grass. Roundup stays active in the soil for around two weeks despite what Monsanto says so add new topsoil when laying new runners or a new block of grass. Rain is no issue except within 6 hours of treatment. You can water the lawn with no problem now. Good luck and take care-Roundup is a poison that does affect our hormonal balances especially women.

Need to know how to mix round up and water


Annual and perennial weeds can be controlled with a mixture of 6 fluid ounces of Roundup (12 tablespoons) per gallon of water. Small weed seedlings can be killed with half this strength: 3 ounces per gallon. When using Roundup Super Concentrate, mix 2.5 ounces (5 tbsp.) with a gallon of water to control most weeds and a half-strength solution for small weeds. Roundup Pro Concentrate is the strongest solution available. Spray a mixture of 2 ounces (4 tbsp.) on weeds and half that amount of concentrate on emerging plants. Since Roundup doesn't discriminate between weeds and other plants, use the least amount of herbicide possible to protect desirable vegetation.

Newly planted red apple iceplant but weeds are taking over


I have heard of two possible choices, the first is a product called "Killer" sold at Armstrongs Gargen centers that may kill the grass, but not the Ice Plants. Check out - http://www.garden-counselor-lawn-care.com/kill-crabgrass.html
and

Good Luck, I Have not used it, but going to in the next couple of days, seems to be the best choice I can find so far.
