Step 2

Choose Herbicide

Pulling weeds in cracks and crevices is a time-consuming nuisance — and not very effective.

Systemic herbicide sprayed on leaves works its way to roots and kills them. Choose herbicide that covers wide range of weeds and grasses but is safe for people and pets after it has dried.

Step 3

Spray Weeds

Spray only when air is calm. Thoroughly saturate existing weeds and surrounding area.

Protect nearby flowers and plants with cardboard or plastic.

Pro Tip

Not only will weeds wither and die, but a second ingredient left in the soil will create an invisible barrier that can keep other weeds from growing back for up to four months.
