GroundWork is a supplier of lawn supplies, one of the most popular products being weed killer. Like many other manufactured weed killers, the GroundWork product must be mixed with water. If the product isn't diluted, it can lower the quality of the soil and make it difficult for new plant life to grow. The amount of water needed differs depending on the size of the yard, but the ratio of weed killer to water should remain the same.
Remove the lid to a sprayer. You can use a hose-end sprayer or a garden sprayer.
Determine how much of the weed killer you need and add it to the sprayer. Measure 5 ounces, or 10 tbsp., for every 1,250 square feet of space.
Add a gallon of water for each ounce of weed killer. For example, if you add 5 ounces of the weed killer, you need 5 gallons of water.
Put the lid on the sprayer. Shake the sprayer to help the weed killer dissolve into the water.
Fill a bucket with 1 gallon of white vinegar.
Add 1 ounce of orange oil.
Add 1 ounce of liquid dish detergent.
Pour the mixture into a large spray bottle. Shake before use, as the oil will separate.
Spray the mixture on the weeds you wish to kill. Be careful to spray in very targeted area, as this mixture will kill any foliage it touches.
Once the foliage dies, pull the dead weeds from the location. They should come up easily.
Combine 1 gallon of white or apple cider vinegar, 1 oz. of liquid soap and 1 tbsp. of salt in an empty bucket. The acetic acid in the vinegar will kill the weeds, and the salt helps to dry up any remaining moisture. Liquid soap adds to the effectiveness of the vinegar.
Mix the solution well, and transfer desired amount into an empty plastic spray bottle.
Spray the vinegar solution directly onto weeds. Use this weed killer on a dry, sunny day to guarantee that the weed will not be receiving any moisture.
Saturate the soil with the remaining homemade weed killer to prevent future weed growth. The vinegar will kill any remaining portion of the weed, and the salt will make the soil an inhospitable environment for any plant growth.
Glyphosate is an effective broad-spectrum herbicide for broadleaf or woody plants and grasses. It is most effective when plants are grown and have begun to flower or are setting out new growth on rhizomes. Otherwise, it may top-kill but leave roots.
Homemade Weed Killer
Combine 1 gallon of white or apple cider vinegar, 1 oz. of liquid soap and 1 tbsp. of salt in an empty bucket. The combination of the acetic acid in the vinegar and the salt will dry up moisture and kill the weed. Liquid soap enhances the effectiveness of the vinegar.
Mix solution well and place desired amount into an empty plastic spray bottle.
Spot treat weeds on the lawn with the homemade spray to kill the plant. Spray the vinegar solution directly on the weed to avoid harming the lawn.
Reapply homemade weed killer as often as necessary. Household vinegar typically has a low percentage of acetic acid, making reapplication necessary for stubborn weeds.
You should spray your lawn for weeds only once every 3 to 4 months. If you overspray weed killer, it will destroy your lawn.
Trimec weed killer, manufactured by PBI/Gordon Corp., can be purchased at department and discount stores with garden centers (such as Sears) and at retailers of garden and farm equipment. Trimec weed killer can also be purchased at many retailers' online stores.
Determine how much granular weed killer you will need to apply. Calculate the amount according to the information the weed killer's packaging.
Spread the prescribed amount of weed killer using a broadcast spreader. Insert the weed killer into the hopper and set the spreader's application rate to match that prescribed by the weed killer's manufacturer (usually 5 to 10 pounds per 1000 square feet). Push the broadcast spreader over the lawn to apply the weed killer evenly.
Apply granular weed killer to spot-control weeds growing among more desirable plants. Cut the offending weed down to the ground with a pair of pruning shears. Sprinkle the manufacturer-recommended amount of granular weed killer (usually 1/2 to 1 pound per square foot) on top of any remaining foliage and the surrounding roots. Take care not to accidentally spill any granular weed killer on the roots of any nearby, desirable plants.
Spray all the foliage of the tree to remove any residual herbicide from it. Herbicide is usually absorbed through the leaves, where it is transported down to the roots.
Soak the ground with your garden hose. This will dilute the herbicide in the soil and may even wash most of it away. This will prevent the roots from absorbing it.
Withhold fertilizing until the tree recovers. Fertilizing the tree will add additional stress to the tree and may cause more damage than good.
Prune off dead or dying branches with a pruning shears or pruning saw. This won't help the tree recover any quicker, but it will improve the appearance of the tree.
View your weather reports and locate a day when the wind is low and no rain is forecast for at least 24 hours.
Prepare yourself to mix the Acme Super Brush Killer, which is a dangerous product. Take proper precautions by donning a mask, goggles and gloves. Make sure to wear long clothing to protect your skin.
Measure and pour 8 ounces of Acme Super Brush Killer in your garden sprayer.
Add 3 gallons of water to your garden sprayer. This should mix with the Acme Super Brush Killer naturally as you pour it in, but you can give it a shake when you are done to be sure.
Spray over the brush you want to kill.
Measure 2 cups vinegar, 1/2 cup of salt and 1/2 cup of dish washing liquid into plastic spray bottle. Mix well by shaking for at least one minute.
Use with care, as you do not want to spray your flowers or vegetable plants with the weed killer. The vinegar kills the weeds, while the salt keeps them from regrowing
Kill weeds using hot water. Spray the weeds with very hot water in a spray bottle.
Remove weeds from the area after they have died. Weed at least a 1/2 hour every week in the garden.
Spray the affected plants with water from a garden hose. This works best if you do it before the weed killer has a chance to dry on the leaves or flowers. The plants absorb the weed killer and transport it to their roots, which then die. Washing the weed killer off will prevent it from being absorbed.
Water the soil thoroughly around the plant. This will dilute the weed killer so that it can't be absorbed by the plant's roots.
Watch the plants over the next few days for signs of damage. If damage appears, prune off the damaged portion of the plant. Unless most of the plant is severely damaged, it should recover over time.
Pour 1 gallon of white vinegar into a 2-gallon stock pot. Bring to a boil on a stove.
Pour 1 cup of salt into the boiling vinegar. Reduce to simmer and stir until the salt is dissolved.
Add 2 Tbsp. dish washing detergent to the mixture. Turn off the stove and allow the mixture to cool.
Pour the mixture into a spray bottle.
Arrange a plastic painter’s drop cloth around the weed so that over-spray from the herbicide will not kill surrounding vegetation.
Spray the weed, coating the leaves and stem with the herbicide.
Allow the leaves and stem to die, and pull the weed out of the ground. Leaves and stem will turn brown and brittle when they die.
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Take the boiling water outside and pour it over the weeds. This will work for a group of weeds contained in small areas. For example, you may have some weeds growing in the cracks of your sidewalk.
Fill a gallon bucket with vinegar. Add the rock salt and mix until the salt is dissolved into the vinegar. Finish the homemade weed killer by dropping in your dish soap. Combine the three ingredients.
Fill the empty spray bottle with the homemade weed killer. You will have extra to refill your spray bottle if you run out.
Spray the weeds with the solution in the spray bottle on a sunny day. Spraying on a rainy day could result in the solution being washed off the weeds before it has a chance to work.
Mow your lawn a day or two before you are ready to apply your Bayer Advanced weed killer, and water it 24 hours before you apply the weed killer. Do not apply the weed killer to a completely dry lawn.
Determine how many square feet of lawn you need to treat. You will need 2 fl. oz. of Bayer Advanced weed killer to cover every 500 sq. ft. of space.
Place the amount of weed killer you need to cover your lawn into the sprayer. If you have 2,000 sq. ft. of lawn, then you would need to place 8 fl. oz. of Bayer Advanced weed killer into your sprayer.
Close the sprayer and attach it to your garden hose.
Turn the water on and begin spraying from left to right. Start at the far end of your lawn, and work your way toward the water hose.
Reapply two weeks later to any weeds that did not completely die off.
