Can I use speed zone around trees and bushes?

I have a major weed problem around my trees, bushes and lawn. I want to kill the weeds but do not want to damage the other vegetation. I also want to plant more vegetation once I have the weeds gone. Should I use roundup or speed zone weed killer?


If you want to plant other vegetation once the weeds are gone you have to use a round up type product since glyphosate, the active ingredient in round up, does not stay for long in the soil.  If you apply speed zone or other selective herbicides, you will not be able to plant any other vegetation for some time.  The quickest way is to spot treat weeds with a glyphosate product.  We carry a full line of professional weed killers that are actually much cheaper per finished gallon than over the counter round up.
