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!!

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.

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

By Grey in Spokane, WA on May 23, 2012
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.
By Robert in Mahopac on July 28, 2014
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.
By Sumpter in Silver Spring, Maryland on July 22, 2014
This product eliminated an infiltration of ground ivy within 3-4 days after application with negligible damage to the grass.
By Bob in Mason, Ohio 45040 on July 21, 2014
Only 50% effective on the clover and less on on dandelions & etc. Not very satisfied at all!!
By fb in illinois on June 2, 2014
While it did not killed all my weeds did a much better job than big box stores weed killers. I had to apply it twice to get a 50% result...
By SC in hood river, or on May 30, 2014
Works great! Great price! Wish it came in a premixed hose dispenser for the same economical price.
By Jose in GA on May 26, 2014
First application at 1.5 oz per gallon it killed about 90% of the weeds it really works. Good price and fast shipping.

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.
