I'm going to be doing a fair amount of "borders" type work with sprayer and
My question is how much, in general, can you cut the stuff you get at Lowes,
Home Depot, etc (Roundup, ShootOut, Ortho, etc) with water without losing
much effectiveness? I guess it's a way of asking just how concentrated are
most of those products?
You may get away with cutting the water in half or more but the efficacy
might be compromised a tad. Depends on the target.
You have to be careful about bleed too. (into the non-target surrounding
My experience with Roundup in ultra concentrated bottle. Don't water it
down if you have any bermuda grass on the border areas you want eradicated.
Takes more that one round to kill it. So, I guess that what you're trying
to eradicate is also a factor in the question as well.
i think roundup is 17% glyphosate . so 4 0z per gallon gets most grass
and weeds, a stronger mix for vines and such. you can get 41% glyphosate
at southern states or ebay in 2.5 gallon jugs for 50.00 -80.00 . i use 2
0z per gallon of 41% for about everything . but i guess youd have to
experement on useing less than reccomended. lucas
