How many ounces of Pendulum Aquacap per gallon of water for use in residential flower beds?


The first thing you need to know when using an herbicide such as Pendulum is that the exact amount of water you dilute it with is not important. It is only important to make sure you are using the correct amount of product per 1,000 sq ft of area. Use too much and you risk damaging desirable plants, use too little and you will not get adequate results. According to page 10 of the Pendulum Aquacap product label you will need to use 1.6 - 3.2 fl oz per 1000 sq ft of area. To decide how much water you want to use, you should mark a 1,000 sq ft area, fill your sprayer with water ONLY, and start walking and spraying just as if you were doing the actual application of herbicide. When you are done walking and spraying the 1,000 sq ft area note how much water it took you to spray that area, and that is the amount you will want to mix with the 1.6 - 3.2 fl oz of Pendulum for each 1,000 sq ft area. You will need to make sure treated areas are irrigated with at least 1/2 inch of water (either by rainfall or by sprinkler) following the application.
