    4 of 5 Stars  Impressed so far
    By Matt on June 3, 2011
    Verified Purchase

    I waited a little too long (May 20) to try to kill the wild violet in my yard with Speed Zone. One treatment killed about half of it and very fast. Temps are above 90 now so I guess I'll try again in the fall or spring so I don't injure the grass. Be very careful if you have a vegetable garden though. I sprayed in what I thought was calm conditions and it managed to drift enough to cause injury in my garden. Next time I'm putting a tarp barrier up.

    3 of 5 Stars  SpeedZone is a good choice
    By SA on June 29, 2011

    I've been using SpeedZone commercially for 4 years now, on about 190K sq. feet of 'high impact' grass areas. It's the best product for Dandelions, which has been a hard one to beat. I like to use it in conjunction with a liquid fertilizer. This helps SZ to work faster for me. Dandelions propagate so quickly, the product needs to work as fast as possible. SZ is not the best choice for thistle, but any other cheaper herbicide with 2,4-D will handle that.  SZ keeps your tank and pump clean, which many others do not. Lastly, I've cut back my use of SZ this year because of its cost. I've tried diluting a little, but then it doesn't work. I would use it more, if it cost less.

    Not withstanding use restrictions, this stuff does the job! It took care of problems that Ortho wouldn't and more! You still have to pull the dead material so the lawn isn't full of dead weeds though.  I recommend this for serious, no kidding around post-emergent turf weed control!

    5 of 5 Stars  Post Emergent herbicide
    By John on June 8, 2012

    Late April 2012 I planted a new lawn by seed--approximately 3/4 acre, consisting of a mixuture of cool and warm season grasses. The imported top soil was unfortunatly loaded with weed seed which came up along with the new grass. The weeds were dominated by Virginia Knotweed, which at 6 weeks were ~12" inches in height and beginning to form seed heads. Using a 1:1 mix (oz Speed Zone to gallon water), due to the new grass being ~6 weeks mature, Speed Zone killed the knotweed and did not harm the tall fescue/little bluestem mix. Weeds wilted within 24 hrs and were mowed 7 days after application--the first cutting for the new grass. There are a few nut grass still in the seeded area not killed by Speed Zone, but these are small enough instances to be pulled. Speed Zone was very effective at controlling post emergent weeds in a stand of newly planted grass seed. I plan to extend it's use to my established lawn--spot treating small areas of white clover and oxalis (woodsorrel).

    4 of 5 Stars  Spring Cleanup
    By Jackie on March 26, 2012

    SZ works great on Chickweed, Henbit and Dandalions. It did not get my clover and it does not work on crab grass. It does work well in the cool Springtime and even if it rains the next day. The note said rainproof in 4 hours.

    has knocked down most of the targeted weeds have applied twice as directed but weeds are coming back. I bought this to try and kill wild violet but it has not done a good job. Have to give it at least 2 stars because directions did say very difficult to control in the warmest months,will give you more update come September! if this doesn't work i will try T-Zone

    5 of 5 Stars  Works Great!
    By Jim on September 25, 2013

    This product kills a wide variety of broadleaf weeds, especially some that other sprays don't work very well on. Works best when temperature is below 90 degrees and is effective during cooler temperatures (above 50 degrees).

    I have used Speed Zone lawn weed killer before and was impressed with the results. Speed Zone Red is the same stuff just in a larger container. Works well on everything in my yard including "creeping charlie". I have since shared some of my SZ Red with a friend and she is impressed with the results as well.

  • 5 of 5 Stars  Awesome Stuff
    By Tim on May 22, 2013

    I mainly had some white clover, chickweed, and wild onion that I was trying to get rid of. Just to give it that extra boost I mixed it with the Non-Ionic Surfactant for Herbicides as directed, marked off 1,ooo sq. ft. sections of the yard and mixed 1.1 oz. & 1 teaspoon of the Surfactant. After the 1st section I knew how fast I had to go and how much to spray. Ended up spraying the whole yard to get rid of other unwanted weeds. After I sprayed I went back approx. 4 hours later & I could see the white clover starting to curl. One week later I can see everything that SZ has eliminated. Thanks DMOPC.

    Called your contact number as was unsure of which products to use. The property had not been treated in 2-3 years; more dandelions & weeds than grass. Speed-Zone Red was one of two products recommended. I sprayed 1.5 acres, within 2 days could see the results, the weeds were withering. Within a week 90-95% of the dandelions were GONE. I went with the minimum strength on the recommended dosage. I will re-apply next week (no rain forecast). Very pleased.

  • 5 of 5 Stars  Quality controls
    By Ryan on November 7, 2013

    We were very satisfied with the applications of SpeedZone Red we made to our athletic fields this fall in NorthCentral, PA. SpeedZone is what it is cracked up to be. We had a much faster burn down time (as mentioned) than with our usual applications and gained control over several tough weeds. Ground Ivy, Dandelion, broadleaf plantain, buckhorn plantain, and white clover were knocked out quickly. We have not noticed any yellowing in our KBG or PR although we gained control with less than the full application rate. Calibration of equipment is essential. We chose speedzone due to the fact that it has a faster suggested over-seeding window, which is essential to the finalize our fall maintenace program.

July 27, 2011Sabrina asked:

QCan I use speed zone around trees and bushes?
I have a major weed problem around my trees, bushes and lawn. I want to kill the weeds but do not want to damage the other vegetation. I also want to plant more vegetation once I have the weeds gone. Should I use roundup or speed zone weed killer?

AIf you want to plant other vegetation once the weeds are gone you have to use a round up type product since glyphosate, the active ingredient in round up, does not stay for long in the soil.  If you apply speed zone or other selective herbicides, you will not be able to plant any other vegetation for some time.  The quickest way is to spot treat weeds with a glyphosate product.  We carry a full line of professional weed killers that are actually much cheaper per finished gallon than over the counter round up.

June 2, 2013John from New York asked:

QWhat type of surfactant should I use with SpeedZone?

AAny surfactant would be sufficient but we normally recommend our Non Ionic Surfactant for Herbicides. Dilution: HERBICIDES such as 2,4-D Amine, Atrazine, Trimec, Brush Killer, Image, MSMA and others: 1-2 teaspoons per gallon of water, or 1 pint per 100 gallons.

GLYPHOSATE HERBICIDES (that do not contain a surfactant): 1 Tablespoon per gallon or 2 quarts per 100 gallons of spray.

INSECTICIDES, FUNGICIDES, MITICIDES and NUTRITIONALS: 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of spray or 8 ounces per 100 gallons of spray

August 2, 2011Brandon asked:

QCan I use Speedzone Red on Tiff green Hybrid bermuda grass lawns?

AYou can use Speedzone on hybrid Bermuda.  However, you should not apply it if the grass is stressed for any reason or if it is stressed from drought.  You should also not apply it in temperatures over 90 degrees.  Speedzone can cause the hybrid bermuda to yellow temporarily if you apply it while stressed.

QCan SpeedZone Red be used on Floratam or Centipede grass?


While SpeedZone Red is labeled to control creeping beggarweed, it is not labeled for use on Floratam St. Augustine but is for Centipede.

Celsius WG is labeled for creeping beggarweed in Floratam and Centipedes grasses and when used as directed on the product label will do a great job helping you eliminate this pest weed

QApplication rates for Ortho Dial-N-Spray
I would like to use non-Ortho concentrates in my Dial-N-Spray sprayer but I cannot find conversion ratios. For cool-season turfgrasses I prefer Bonide Weed Beater Ultra, but its broadcast application rates are listed in pints per acre. I am treating 9000 square feet and have no idea what setting on my hose-end sprayer to use. For spring treatments next year I would also like to use Speedzone Red, which lists rates for ounces per thousand square feet and gallons per thousand square feet; not ounces per gallon.

AGenerally, one gallon of mixed solution will treat 1,000 sq feet. So, Speedzone Red would be approx 1.5 fl oz per one gallon of mixed solution to treat 1000 sq. feet. Please follow the product labels for application. The same can be said for Bonide Weed Beater Ultra. the product label suggests mix 1.5 - 2.4 fl. oz into one gallon of water to treat 1000 square feet.
