This worked great to kill all the weeds and crabgrass in my 1 acre yard. I used late August of 2012. Used ratio as recommended on label in a 15 gallon tow behind sprayer. I had a little left, so I watered down maybe 1 gallon of the mixture to fill my 15 gallon tank, and it still killed alot of the crabgrass in my neighbors yard. Would buy again.

Q4 worked great for the broadleaf weeds and blanket crabgrass in my bermuda lawn. Didn't damage the bermuda much, even though I sprayed when the temps were hot. It didn't work well on the large-leaf crabgrass, but it completly killed the low-growing blanket crabgrass.

Kind of pricey, but you get what you pay for. Works great on getting rid of weeds, but don't get this stuff close to your flowers or they will be gone as well. I highly recommend this product.

It Works when other stuff failed
August 8, 2013
I would agree with some of the other comments-there is some investment up front-but it's cheaper than hiring someone and it works. I tried other stuff from Lowes and Home Depot with no luck. Used it in hot weather but had little damage to my Bermuda grass. It killed some pretty large patches of crab grass and other weeds. Pay attention to the proper mix. Would buy again

The best I've found
By Mike in McMurray, PA on September 26, 2013
I used Q4 on crabgrass, clover and wild violets. It has taken care of almost all of my weeds! The violets took a 2nd application, as the label states. I would recommend this to everyone.

Turf Herbicide Q4plus
August 28, 2013
This product is very effective. Crab grass gets brown in two days. This has made crab grass dark brown in weeks time and appears crab is dead from top. This is too early for me to say that this chemical has gone to roots of crab to kill for ever.

Works as Advertised.
August 15, 2013
I apply Q4 in two applications about 2 weeks apart with a 50 gal. boom sprayer, mixed at 1/2 gal to 45 gal of water. This seems adequate for covering about 3.5 acres. You can see the crabgrass begin to turn purple in about 3-5 days, then yellow in about 6-10 days. If you need a post-emergent crabgrass treatment, this is a good choice.
By Edward in Belleville, Illinois on May 30, 2014
Q4 is an excellent herbicide that kills weeds and doesn't hurt grasses. Be sure to wait 2-3 days for the Q4 to work well, don't get in a hurry with deairing to see results too quickly. But after 2-3 days, weeds are brown and dying. Will buy again from DoMyOwn and will buy Q4 again too.

This is the best weed control product for lawns that I have ever come across.
Seems to be working on the Japanese Knotweed
By M in Cleveland, OH on July 7, 2014
I happened to have a fairly large patch of Japanese Knotweed that I could not eradicate by Bobcat, hand digging, pulling, Roundup Extended Control, Lime, Ortho Brush Killer or a desperate attempt using the Internet remedy of Vinegar/Soap/Salt mixture. My dentist (yes my dentist) raved about Q4 so I thought why not? We looked online and saw Knotweed was on the list of weeds that Q4 kills so I ordered from here. I applied after pulling these weeds again and noticed no growth 4 days after the last "battle" This weed can have growth of about 4 inches after 4 days. The weekend came and I noticed no new growth. Next weekend came and I notice a few stems with minimal leaves probably because they were missed the 1st time (used 1 gallon hand sprayer). So I pulled the stragglers and sprayed the entire area again including in the grassy areas where it crept. No browning of the grass. This is the best product I used so far and time will tell if it kills it for good but I think I can keep this horrible weed at bay with Q4. I can't give a 5 star until I know it is gone but I am very pleased with the product so far.
The nuclear option!
By Dave in Edgewater, MD on September 16, 2014
Tried the rest... this is the best! Follow directions regarding mowing, watering and mixture and you'll not be disappointed. Not inexpensive but worth it. I used a quart on about 1/5 acre of grass in two applications in early September with excellent results.

QTemperature to apply Q4 Plus?
What is good outdoor temperature to spray in? What is too cold?

Jason from Fort Gibson, Ok asked:
QMixture of Q4 plus per 1000 sq. feet?
AThe mixing ratio of Q4 really depends on what and where you are treating. The product label suggests using 1.8-2.6 fl oz per one gallon to treat 1000 sq. feet.

Don from Hugo asked:
QWill Q4 work better with the addition of adding a spreader sticker to my mix?
A Certain spray tank additives such as surfactants may reduce the selectivity on the turfgrass. Use adjuvants only when your experience indicates that the tank mixture will not result in objectionable turf injury.

Bob from Lawrence, Ne 68957 asked:
QIs Q4 Plus Turf Herbicide effective on quack-grass in bluegrass lawn?
AQ4 is not labeled for quackgrass. Quackgrass unfortunately is too closely related to Kentucky BlueGrass and most products that will kill quackgrass will also severly damage if not kill the KBG. The common recommendation is to kill the quackgrass with a glyphosate product and then reseed with KBG.

Jim from Javksonville, Florida asked:
QIs it ok and effective to use Q4 on Zoysia grass?
My yard was sodded three weeks ago. A lot of clover is growing up thru the grass, The grass is Zoysia. Please advise.
ANo, Q4 is not for use on Zoysia Grass and if used on newly sodded Zoysia you would most likely kill it. We do have products you can use to remove clover from Zoysia, however, we do not recommend applying any pre or post emergents on newly sodded grass. Depending on where you live in the country, if you are in an area that is in transition and will soon be going dormant, if you apply a post emergent herbicide you can forever damage the Zoysia grass. It is recommended that you wait a full growing cycle before applying pre or post emergents on your grass to ensure it can handle the shock of applying an herbicide. We recommend that you mow your grass often to suppress the clover, water it often, and wait until next early summer to treat the clover if it still exists. At that point in time your grass would have gone through the spring growing season and should be able to handle the application of an herbicide. To remove clover and other weeds out of Zoysia grass at this point, we recommend SpeedZone.

Tony from Cleveland, Ohio asked:
QIf I only make one application a year (3 acres) with Q4 when would it be suggested to do this in Cleveland, OH?
A. Early Spring before weeds appear, March/April B May/June beginning weed season C. July/Aug, height of weed season D. Sept/Oct. Please replay with A,B,C,D letter and week of month if possible. Thank you.
A Application timing of Q4 Plus Turf Herbicide is going to vary depending on the types of weeds you are trying to control per the product label and it may take more than one application. It would need to be applied when the weeds are growing not before as it will only kill the weeds it makes contact with that have emerged. We do not know the exact time of year you will start applying Q4 in Ohio. Weeds grow at different times in different regions and there is no way for us to know down to the exact week. Please refer to the product label for complete instructions based on whether you are treating for grassy weeds or broadleaf weeds. If you are not sure when the weeds start to actively grow in your region you can contact the master gardener at your local cooperative extension office for more information.

Joseph from Raleigh, Nc asked:
QIs Q4 safe for a backyard where a dog would roam. If not, how long after application would be required?
We have a family dog that likes to go in the backyard, but are worried that something this extreme may make him unable to be outside. Is it safe? Once it's dry is it safe? This came highly recommended, but the person recommending it didn't know how it might effect pets.
It will be safe for you to apply Q4 Plus Turf Herbicide and allow to completely dry prior to allowing your dog in the treated area.

Charles from Clayton, Nc asked:
QHow to treat my lawn for weeds without killing my grass?
I have fescue grass with many types of weeds I am new to treat lawns so I need help choosing a product. I have a lot of green clover and dandelion. I have sprayed amine 400(2,4-D) but it has not really done the perfect job I seen the dandelion die but clover is unaffected by this product.
