Overview

Some weeds can be especially hard to kill. That is when you need to get an herbicide that is a little stronger than your ordinary herbicide. Roundup Pro is a professional strength herbicide used to kill weeds. It has the power to kill some of the toughest weeds. Its active ingredient is glyphosate. To use the Roundup Pro to kill your weeds, you must first mix it with water.

Step 1

Put on protective clothing before opening the Roundup Pro bottle. These will be listed on the product label and include long pants, long-sleeved shirt, boots, gloves, a mask and goggles.

Step 2

Open your Roundup Pro bottle and measure 13 oz. for every 400 square feet of land you need to cover. For example, if you need to cover 1,200 square feet, you will need 39 oz. (13 X 3). Pour the Roundup Pro in a garden sprayer.

Step 3

Add 1 gallon of water for every 400 square feet of land you need to cover. For example, if you need to cover 1,200 square feet, you will need 3 gallons of water (1 X 3).

Step 4

Put the lid back on your garden sprayer. Give your garden sprayer a good shake to finish mixing the two ingredients. If you prefer to use a wooden paint stick to mix the ingredients, you can.

Step 5

Spray across your weeds being careful to soak all of the leaves. The weeds should begin dying within a few hours.
