Clovers and Creeping Charlie - gone
By C. in Chicago, IL on July 26, 2011
I have tried just about everything to knock out Creeping Charlie in my lawn. Speedzone did it with ease. The results were noticed within days of the first application. It is an amazing product.

Well worth the money!
By Travis in Lenoir NC on May 6, 2011
Used and most of the weeds in my lawn were dead the next evening. It took just a couple days on the clover, but it's dead too!!!! Much better than round up and other brands I've used in the past that had little or not effect. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to get rid of weeds!!

Speedzone Lawn Weed Killer
By Steve in North Branch, MI on April 2, 2012
This is the only product I have ever used that is effective in low temperatures. It gives me the ability to kill weeds when they first appear in the Spring instead of having to wait for warm weather to be effective

Great product for treating majority of broadleaf weeds and great amount of product if you don't need 1 gallon size. I blanket sprayed at 1.6 oz per 1000 sq. ft. I could see results next day. On the 4th day black medic, clover, speedwell, dandelion are all curled up and brown. Will see the end result and if there are any survivors in 2 weeks.
Dissappointed in Gordon's Speed Zone Weed Killer
By Bill in farmingville, NY 11738 on August 27, 2015
Followed instructions for proper concentration amount with water. Applied to broad leaf weeds throughout the lawn area applying with new sprayer (by hand). The broad leaf weed did not change color or welter. Sorry but the product did not hold up to its claim. Thank you.
By Jerry in Binghamton, NY on August 16, 2015
I have given a 3 star rating to Speedzone because I'm still in the process of attacking this tenacious weed. I tried SZ in the summer and it only wilted the weed but killed very few. I have read that the fall is a good time to apply SZ because the violets are taking in food for the winter months and more easily absorb the SZ. My advice is not to apply until the fall or spring when the violets are actively growing. To be continued.

Well,after searching for years for a product to kill of the Veronica (is it called speedwell too?), this product has worked best so far and hasn't hurt the grass. I'll put a 2nd application soon,my lawn is overrun by it.but I got impressive results from the first run using my 2gal sprayer at 1oz per gallon mix.

Paul from Roanoke, Va asked:
QDoes SpeedZone contain a surfactant?
I plan to use SpeedZone for spot treatment of Ground Ivy. Addition of a non-ionic surfactant is typically recommended for liquid herbicide application to broadleaf weeds. I do not see this recommendation on the label, nor do I recognize a surfactant on the ingredient list.
ASpeedZone Lawn Weed Killer Concentrate does not contain a surfactant. We do highly recommend adding a surfactant to increase the sticking and penetration power of SpeedZone Lawn Weed Killer Concentrate. You can use a surfactant like Non Ionic Surfactant For Herbicides.

QHow safe is this product around trees and shrubs?
I have 4+ acres to treat and many trees, some ornamental and specimen hybrid conifers. There is a lot of lawn area however needing treatment.
SpeedZone Lawn Weed Killer Concentrate is reasonably safe around trees and shrubs. However, you should be careful not to get any overspray onto any desirable plants. trees, or shrubs. If you are treating your lawn that is close to desirables then it would be recommended to use a shield of sorts to prevent drift from getting on your desirables.
