How safe is Killzall Weed and Grass Killer for the garden?
If I spray it, will it go to the root to kill it? Will it deep intot the soil and spread to other plants even if I don't spray those plants directly? Also how far from water life can you spray this? We have a pond further behind our house, but it is a good 30 feet or so from the edge of the garden I think.
Killzall Weed and Grass Killer is a non-selective post-emergent weed killer that will kill any weeds or grasses sprayed directly. It will not penetrate deep into the soil and does not have any residual soil activity. It will be safe as long as you are careful to avoid spraying the desirable plants. It should NOT be applied where runoff could occur or around any acquatic life or bodies of water. However, we do carry a glyphosate product that is made specifically for use around bodies of water. It is called Rodeo and you should use a surfactant with it for better results. You would wait 48 hours after application before using the water. It is recommended that you wait 1-2 weeks before replanting in an area that has been treated with a glyphosate product such as Killzall Weed and Grass Killer.
