How to kill weeds for good the first time

If you have a yard ( or as some may refer to as a “garden”’s a UK thing ) then you know the frustration when it comes to weeds. I have tried most of the famous brand name weed/grass killing products; some expensive some not but have found the results to be the same; The weeds only grew bigger. Until I discovered the secret combination that actually works..the FIRST time.

I was talking to my dad on the phone one day about my weed problem. Growing up in the orchard industry as a child, I remembered my dad has 70+ years of weed killing experience, so I asked him; how do I kill these weeds for good? He enlightened me with this simple and highly effective “recipes” annihilating weeds for good.

The recipe that works for killing JUST weeds NOT grass:

  • 2-3 TBS of 2,4D Broad Leaf Weed Killer in 3-5 gallon of water to cover. 1000 sqft.
  • 1 1/2 Cups of vegetable oil
  • Mix contents in a 3-5 gallon pump sprayer

So you can spray just 2,4D to kill just broad leaf weeds, however if the application dries or washes off before it can work, then you wasted your time and money. By adding the vegetable oil to the mix, this insures the 2,4D sticks to the leaf of the weed and stays, even if it rains, allowing the 2,4D to do it’s job. ( Hmmm, who would of thunk ). 2-4D will not kill your grass, which makes it a valuable product.

The recipe that works for killing weeds AND grass:

  • 2-3 TBS of 2,4D Broad Leaf Weed Killer in 3-5 gallon of water to cover. 1000 sqft.
  • 1 1/2 Cups of vegetable oil
  • 2 1/2 oz. of RoundUp weed and grass killer per 1 gallon of water. 
  • Mix contents in a 3-5 gallon pump sprayer

Adding RoundUp to the mix ensures that all spectrum’s of broad leaf weeds are affected by the application, and when I say affected, I mean “dead weeds”.

But WAIT there’s MORE!

The recipe that works for keeping weeds AND grass from coming back:

  • 1 application of ERASER

ERASER is a non selective broad spectrum control for annual and perennial weeds woody brush and trees. Basically saying, it sterilizes the ground preventing weeds and grass from even germinating. ERASER comes in granular and liquid form. The granular form works the best by setting on the ground, waiting for water to activate it, allowing for a longer release time preventing weed growth up to 3 years! That is 3 years of NO WEEDS! OH YEA! Weed freedom.

So, there you have it. The magic mix to kill weeds and prevent them from coming back. I think dads recipe might out do grandmas cookie recipe; well, it would be close anyway.

Remember, this is for informational purposes only and may go outside what the chemical application recommends, so always abide by what the chemical application states on the container. Never mix chemicals together, until you verify it is safe to do so.
