Weed Free Zone is the best weed killer I have ever used. Not only does it work flawlessly, but the weeds are brown and shriveled in as little as two days. Sure it's pricey, but it WORKS. So many times I have tried other weed killers from companies such as Ortho, like you get at a home center, and it takes forever to kill the weeds. WFZ is the champion of weed killers in my book. Not the most environmentally friendly product out there, but when you need weeds killed and killed fast, you can't beat WFZ.

Weed Free Zone
By Larry on August 15, 2011
Weed Free Zone is the only product that I have found that will control wild violets in my grass. But, it does take more than one application especially on older, more mature plants. Of course it works great on the regular broad leaf weeds too. Don't forget to use a surfactant so that the product will wet the leaves.

The Eradication of Creeping Charlie (ground Ivy) by FWFZ
By Robert on October 6, 2011
I was pointed toward Fertilome Weed Free Zone by my next door neighbor. I have applied one spraying with hand pump sprayer and noticed instant results and had to respray very little on second application. It is remarkable how fast it acts and kills the creeping charlie which is the hardest most evasive weed on my property. I highly recommend this product and will be buying more from DoMyOwnPestControl.com. Thanks, R.Y.

Weed Free Zone for Dandelions
By Daryl on May 8, 2011
I have been using this Fertilome Weed Free Zone on Dandelions for three years. I have been individually hand spraying them because they said not to use a broadcast sprayer. Applying it is in the spring and twice in September as instructed. I have more than when I started. I think it actually multiplies them. It does not appear to have any killing affect on dandelions at all. Very high cost for very poor performance. Recommend not wasting your money.

Best I've used
By Alan on May 1, 2012
I have used many products in attempts to control weeds in my fescue lawn. Weed Free Zone works better than anything that I have used. It may cost more for the container but it works and that is my main concern.
WEED FREE ZONE
May 31, 2013
The best weed killer i've ever used. Been using for 7/8 years and am completely satisfied. Use about 3 qts a year on house area, 1 1/2 acre+ and camp. Saved $200 by getting case of 12 qts.
By Bill on May 27, 2013
I bought this product to control/kill wild violets in my common bermuda grass lawn. It knocked them out with one application. Expect some light yellowing of grass but it didn't do any serious damage and turf came back in one or two mowings.
By William on May 26, 2013
Put it on about 2 weeks ago and the weeds are gone. I have a 1 acre lot and 2 bottles were not enough--will order 3 next time. Fetilome Weed Free Zone is the best weed killer I have ever applied--will use it exclusively from now on. That said, it does not kill bermuda grass (a grass I think of as a weed) nor will it kill new weeds that are now sprouting from the ground--now I need a good pre-emergent for this fall
By Fran on May 22, 2013
I live in western colorado and the weed in my yard and garden that i fight most is bindweed, this is the only thing i have found that works and an added benefit . . . it doesn't kill the grass.

Good weed killer
By Jim on April 23, 2013
So far so good. I'm trying to eradicate Creeping Charlie from our back yard. I followed the instructions and three days later the ivy started to turn a darker brown and shrivel up on the leaves ends. It is a hard ivy to get rid of. I've tried many of the "brand name" killers and have had minimal success. I will update in a week or so.

I aerated & over-seeded last fall and had a lot of weeds this spring. This stuff works not cheap but it gets results. Use a surfactant with this herbicide for better results! I will be buying more!
By Lee on March 16, 2013
3 days into it the weeds showed signs of a violent death. I spot sprayed trouble areas used it conservatively. I have failed at only a few things in my life and the weeds in my new lawn were on that list. I also bought the tenacity but haven't used it yet.

October 19, 2011Mike from Connersville, Indiana asked:
QWhen is the correct time to apply Weed Free Zone for wild violets in Fescue?
I'm wanting to spray my yard to kill the weeds off this fall. Is it too late to use this in central Indiana? I did this a few weeks ago but the wild violets survived! Should I increase the mixture to kill these? I have bluegrass, fescue mix grasses.
AAccording to the Fertilome Weed Free product label: Spring and Fall treatments under adequate soil moisture conditions are preferred to the Summer treatments. Generally, Summer broadcast applications to older, drought stressed weeds are less effective. Broadcast (entire areas) applications or follow-up applications at 2-6 week intervals are recommended for more mature Weeds, for dense infestations, and for adverse environmental conditions. Spot treatments during summer may be appropriate for sparse infestations, or as a follow-up treatment, or any time broadleaf weeds are susceptible. For more specific information or application tips we recommend that you contact the manufacturer directly. You can reach VPG at 888-583-5296.

February 12, 2013Steve from Statesboro asked:
QIs Fertilome Weed Free Zone for spot or broadcast treating?
Is this product more suited for spot treating smaller areas or can it be broad cast spread on entire lawn using a back pack sprayer? Not hose end.
AFertilome Weed Free Zone is labeled to be used as a broadcast spray. A backpack sprayer would work very well for this application.
June 6, 2011Dolly asked:

AUnfortunately, you did not give us enough specific information on what type of grass you were treating for us to be able to give you a specific answer.

January 8, 2012Lee from Cowpens, Sc asked:
QHow well does Fertilome Weed Free Zone work on wild onion in lawns?
I live in upstate South Carolina and the wild onion is in full growth due to the mild winter we are having. Is there a better product to eliminate wild onion?
AFertilome Weed Free Zone will work well on wild onion in lawn species listed on the product label. Be sure to apply the product to the weeds during a time when the wild onion will be susceptible to herbicides, you may want to contact your local cooperative extension office and speak to the master gardener on staff to determine timing as it will vary from region to region
May 1, 2013Matthias from Mississippi asked:
QI might be missing it, but does the label on Fertilome Weed Free Zone not give water rates per fluid ounce?
If I want to broadcast treat St. Augustine at a rate of 1.5 fl. oz per 1,000 square feet how much water do I use per 1.5 fl. oz?
AThe reason there are not exact water rates is because water just acts as the carrier. It is however much water it takes for you to disperse 1.5 ounces over 1000 square feet. With that said, we generalize that 1 gallon will treat approx. 1000.
October 7, 2013Lamont from Winslow, N.j. asked:
QHow much area does a qt of Fertilome Weed Free Zone cover?
AThe amount of coverage one quart of Fertilome Weed Free Zone will cover depends on your application ratio. The label explains depending on what you are treating to use
August 4, 2013Tony from Amarillo, Texas asked:
QWhat is the mixture ratio for concentrated Fertilome Weed Free Zone?
If I remember correctly approx. 1 to 2 capfuls per 5 gallons of water was the mixture
AThe amount you would use will be dependent on the turf you are treating on. According to the label it will vary for warm and cool season grasses and they range from 0.75-2 ounces per 1000 sq/ft in no less than 1 gallon of water. Please see the Product Label for exact instructions for your lawn type and treatment areas. Let us know if you have any other questions.
