    5 of 5 Stars   Great Product!!
    By Tony 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.

    5 of 5 Stars   The Eradication of Creeping Charlie (ground Ivy) by FWFZ
    By Robert on 10/06/2011
    Verified Purchase

    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.

    4 of 5 Stars   Weed Free Zone
    By Larry on 08/15/2011
    Verified Purchase

    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.

    5 of 5 Stars   Ferilome
    By John on 06/02/2012

    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.

    5 of 5 Stars   Best I've used
    By Alan 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.

    1 of 5 Stars   Weed Free Zone for Dandelions
    By Daryl 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.

    By Dave on 04/10/2012

    5 of 5 Stars   bingo!..................
    By Randy 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!

    5 of 5 Stars   Good weed killer
    By Jim on 04/23/2013
    Verified Purchase

    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.

    5 of 5 Stars   Betterthan expected
    By Bill on 05/27/2013
    Verified Purchase

    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.

    3 of 5 Stars   Fertilome Weed Free Vs. Wild Violets
    By Robert on 06/12/2012
    Verified Purchase

    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.

    5 of 5 Stars   Very good product for killing clover in the PNW.
    By C. on 07/03/2012

    Basically a homeowner formulation of PBI Gordon's "Speed Zone" herbicide, WFZ is a popular product with our customer's wanting to kill clover's in lawn areas. Also works great as a tank mix with Roun-up type herbicides in non-crop areas.

    4 of 5 Stars   it works!
    By William on 05/26/2013

    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

    5 of 5 Stars   Great product
    By Dave on 04/02/2012

    Saw an article about this in my Handyman magazine, the cool weather application really appealed to me and I thought I would give it a try. It is a fantastic product so happy with the results, would recommend to anyone. Only drawback was finding it, only available by internet, no stores in my area carried or even heard of it.

    5 of 5 Stars   Creeping Charlie
    By Josh on 06/10/2016

    This stuff really works great. Kills all the weeds and not the grass. Spray and two day later it turns brown. I even mixed it a little hotter then recommended and left the grass alone. Fertilome is the weed killer I have been looking for.

    5 of 5 Stars   A product that really Works
    By Robert 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

    5 of 5 Stars   Virginia Buttonweed gone - weed free zone works!
    By Mike 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!

    1 of 5 Stars   VERY Disappointed
    By J. on 05/11/2015
    Verified Purchase

    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...

    Expert Response  Expert response:
    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
