When to Apply
Spray when broadleaf weeds are young and actively growing for best results. Ferti-lome Weed Free Zone may be applied in the Spring, Summer, or Fall.
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.

By Tony in Denver, Colorado on 04/28/2011
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.

The Eradication of Creeping Charlie (ground Ivy) by FWFZ
By Robert in Plymouth, MN on 10/06/2011
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
By Larry in Cincinnati, OH on 08/15/2011
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.

This is the only thing we have found that controls creeping charlie. It is expensive but better than killing all the grass and starting over like our neighbor did.

Best I've used
By Alan in LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY on 05/01/2012
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.

By Bill in Tulsa, OK on 05/27/2013
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.

Good weed killer
By Jim in Wanatah Indiana on 04/23/2013
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.

Fertilome Weed Free Vs. Wild Violets
By Robert in Louisville Kentucky on 06/12/2012
I've been battling Wild Violets for years with no success. I purchased this product because of it's different chemical makeup as compared to off the shelf products like Ortho which have no effect at all on violets. After one application the violets looked sick and showed some browning after a week, while other colonies showed no damage. I upped the dose by 1/2 once per gallon and hit them again, this time with better results but some yellowing of surrounding grass. I am encouraged so far and time will tell.

By Randy in webster, sd on 05/29/2012
took me a while, but, finally found out what the weed was that WAS taking over my backyard. it WAS creeping campanula---and it was getting bad! i had been using a well known broadleaf killer, but, to no avail. it would curl up (and burn) the weed---only later to return. i had been battling this for 3 yrs. i finally found out that cc is resistant to many broadleaf weedkillers---till i used Fertilome Weed Free Zone. the fairly large patches have disappeared now, only to leave some spots for "clean-up". i am sure they are just some i missed here and there. Fertilome WFZ is a bit more expensive, but, well worth it for me!!! i should mention it has done a terrific job on some of the other weeds around the yard, too!

Weed Free Zone for Dandelions
By Daryl in Battle Creek, MI on 05/08/2011
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.

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.

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.

QWhat is the setting for the Ortho Dial N Spray?
I am trying to knock out ground ivy and wild onion in my Kentucky blue grass/fescue lawn in Vermont. After first attempt, the ground ivy rebounded and became worse. I think I used the wrong mix ratio (too weak) and just pissed it off.
AFertilome Weed Free Zone product label recommends mixing 0.75 - 1.5 fl. oz. per gallon of water. For Ground Ivy we would recommend using the highest rate of 1.5 oz. per gallon of water. If the product instructions say to use 1.5 ounces per gallon of water, then the Ortho Dial N Spray should be set to the 1.5 oz mark if available. Broadcast (entire areas) applications or follow-up applications should be done at a 2-6 week interval which is recommended for more mature Weeds, for dense infestations, and for adverse environmental conditions.
QIs there a temp range when I use Fertilome Weed Free Zone?
AFertilome Weed Free Zone is best applied before temps reach above 80 degrees. Please consult the product label for application.

QHow long does fertilome weed free zone stay in the ground?
I want to clear an area for replanting at some point with broadleaf flowers. How long will it be active?

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.
