Hi , I would be very carefull around good plants. Roundup will kill almost any plant, including aquatic plants, so you want to be sure to avoid spray drift onto other plants or into water.

I just dug a new garden and want to spray the new soil with roundup to prevent news grass and weeds from growing in this area. How long after application of spray should I wait before planting new shrubs...


Roundup works on the leaves of an active plant. It is not a preventative. Use Preen for preventing weeds. If you do spray Roundup on active weed, it takes two weeks before you can plant your good plant material.

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.

How do you use roundup to kill a tree stump?


Hello, I am a grower and licensed pesticides applicator (40 yrs exp).
Roundup lost the trade mark years ago,"glyphosphate" which is now marketed (cheaper) under many other names,
Will kill a live tree if sprayed on the leaves! Also will damage young trees if you just get over spray on the trunk while spraying weeds.
Also, kills grass as well as broadleaved plants.
To kill a tree you would need to spray the leaves, then wait at least a month before cutting the tree down. I have successfully killed a few stumps by spraying the live suckers.
Be especially careful of spray drift as the finer the droplets are the more effective the chemical is. Read the label!

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.

We just planted some ice plant on our embankment and the weeds and grass are overtaking it. What can we do?


Hallo there. The best is to weed it and mulch then with some clean woodchips etc. If it is just new grass weeds through among the plants with soil shacken off. It returns Nitrogen to the soil. DO not use Roundup because you will kill your plants as well. Have fun and do post a picture it will be great to see and advice can be specific. Regards

When can I plant grass after using Roundup?


You can plant or replant as soon as the weeds you sprayed are dead. Roundup is deactivated upon contact with the soil, it only affects the plant material sprayed.

Very important to buffer the pH of the water at pH 5. Then add Roundup /Glyphosate 360 at a 2% for grass weeds and 3% for brush weeds. Ensure that the grass is dry when treating and no rain is expected within 6 hours. Please take care with roundup as it is poison .
