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.

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.

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.

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.
Great Weed killer
By Debra in Prattville, AL on 04/08/2016
I started using this weed killer last year after using straight 2,4D for years. It is a much wider spectrum weed killer ( 2, 4 D plus two other weed killers) and kills all of the weeds in my yard except crab grass. I have Tifton Bermuda and St Augustine grass in my yard and the Weed Free Zone has no detrimental effects on the grass. I highly recommend this product.

A product that really Works
By Robert in Fresno, CA on 03/08/2016
Living in California, we have had a drought for several years. So not being able to water the lawn as we would before the drought, The lawn has nothing but weeds, stickers everything but lawn. I had call in to DoMyOwnpest Control, and asked what would be the best product to use, they recommended Weed Free Zone. Within days it started working. I am very happy with the results
Weed Free Zone
By Alan in Louisville Ky on 02/25/2016
IMHO, Weed Free Zone is the best and easiest product that I have found to control most yard weeds in lawns. It kills all the types which I have in mine and is also successful in the yards which I use it in for others. Spend the extra money, now, and don't waste it on products at Hardware stores. You'll be glad you did.

Virginia Buttonweed gone - weed free zone works!
By Mike in Charlotte, nc on 06/12/2015
I have tried everything including other products that claim to get rid of virginia buttonweed. All work initially but the weed eventually takes over and grows uncontrollably. Thos product really works! I got it early as it started to grow and within days the weed was dying and after 1 week there was hardly a sign of it. I treated a second time to get what remained and so far after weeks there is still sign of it! Thanks!

By J. in Oklahoma City, OK on 05/11/2015
I live in Oklahoma and have a lawn with more weeds than grass. Products from this site have saved my life several times so I did my research, and read great reviews for WFZ. I purchased some along with a Chapin hose end sprayer. I applied the product as directed and assumed I would see some results in a few days. Nothing, so I waited a week, nothing, so I waited for 10 days-it has been two weeks and the weeds are slightly lighter in color-thats it! I am on a budget and am very disappointed about the money I spent needlessly and quite baffled considering the reviews! Where do I go from here? BTW, I love the sprayer-reviews were spot on with it...
You may have weeds that are not covered under the Weed Free Zone. Also, if the weeds are not actively growing or are under stress from drought or extreme heat, it will take more time for the herbicide to be effective. If you have more undesirable than desirable plants, you can also use a non-selective herbicide such as RoundUp QuickPro to clear the entire area, and then reseed the lawn to start fresh: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/roundup-quikpro-15-oz-packs-p-1125.html

QCan I mix Weed Free Zone with Accel spreader sticker in a hose end sprayer (undiluted)?
A When mixing products together in a hose end sprayer you must use products that have the same dilution rates or separate applications would be recommended. Weed Free Zone may be used in a hose end sprayer as long as your sprayer has the proper dilution setting. However, we are unsure as to whether you may mix the Accel Spreader Sticker with the Weed Free Zone in the hose end sprayer because we do not know the mixing rate for the Accel.
