Speed Zone Southern
By Jim on 04/27/2012
My yard, approximately 3/4 acre, consists mainly of St. Augustine/fescue and was heavily infested with a variety of different weeds due mainly to lack of previous treatment (St. Augustine very sensitive to most herbicides). Mixed and applied SZS in accordance with directions at a rate 1.5 fl oz mixed in 2 gal. quantities per 1000sf. Positive results noticed within 2 days with approximately 98 percent positive results in 2 weeks (as advertised). Surprisingly, same species of weeds responded with a less positive results during same time periods. This may be due to uneven application caused by varying pump pressure as chemical was distributed. Distribution was performed using a hand pressurized fan sprayer with a 2 gal capacity. Little or no turf damage observed.

Very effective stuff
By Alex on 01/14/2014
I'm a first time homeowner in South Florida. Being such when I purchased my home I didn't have the slightest clue that there are things called weeds that slowly choke and take over your grass if left untouched. 4 years later my lawn was a mess. But in those four years I have grown to be an adept do it yourself homeowner. So after sodding about 25% of my lawn that was completely choked with weeds, I had to figure out how to get rid of the weed in the other areas. Most of which was anywhere from 40-65% weed mixed with grass. I also had some of the toughest weeds to kill. The toughest one was the creeping beggar weed. I didn't find anything from my research that treated it effectively without killing grass. And believe me I did a ton of research down to whatís the best method of getting rid of each individual type of weed in my lawn. After about 2 weeks of fruitless searching I found a website mentioning this herbicide as being extremely effective. So I bought and then applied it per the instruction and after just one application my yard is now only 10-20% weed! This stuff is AMAZING!! Killed 4 years of weed in just one application! Furthermore, my grass stayed completely green without any negative effect from the herbicide (St. Augustine) I was hesitant to buy it at first because of the price but itís completely worth it. Also there's enough herbicide here to last you anywhere from 3-5 years so in the long run its cheaper than most of the stuff you will buy at home depot. In fact comparing this to even the best thing home depot has to offer is like comparing an NFL team to a high school team. If you have the types of weed that this herbicide is designed for just stop searching for anything else and buy this. If you use it correctly it will destroy your weed without harming your grass.

Invasive groundcover in FL
By David on 05/16/2012
This was recommended by Ag Serv. as only herbicide to rid my FL panhandle yard of the dreaded: Tradescantia fluminensis- Common Names: green wandering Jew, small leaf spiderwort, white-flowered wandering Jew, inch plant, speedy Jenny. Which is a class 1 invasive species. It works..but the plants are so resilent..you have to keep at it..recommend this product for this species.

Got the Speedzone Southern Herbicide, sprayed it on as per the instructions and it quickly went to work. Took about 2 days for the burr weed to start dying. It is all gone now and two weeks later the Bermuda is coming in strong that the burr weed had been choking out before. Good stuff Thanks.

Worked as Advertised
By Jason on 07/05/2011
I sprayed my Bermuda hybrid with this product and it killed the broad leaf weeds as advertised. I did follow the instructions to the letter, even down to when to mow and not mow. I sprayed my yard 1/2 acre with my four wheeler making sure I stayed around 1.5-2 miles an hour as best I could. My grass didn't yellow much, even with the temperatures being on the border of being too hot per the instructions. One application of fertilizer the next week and it's back to its dark green color.

Speed Zone Southern
By Sc on 11/08/2012
The product was delivered as promised. I used it on my yard which is about 2 acres. I really like the results on the clover and other weeds. It did not harm my grass. Highly recommend this product.

SPEEDZONE FOR SOUTHERN YARDS
By Chris on 05/05/2014
I've used Speed zone in thpast with great results ( only spray that really destroys dollarweed). My landscaping supplier closed down and I've trying serveral standard Brand stuff in Lowes with dis-appointing results. Found Do My Own Pest Control via online search. They delivered in less than 5 days, I sprayed yard and the next morning you could see ALL the weeds beginning to die. Great product and great service by DoMy OwnPesrControl!!!! Next I'm working on moles (coming over from my neighbor's yard !

I've struggled with beggar weed in our zoysia grass for several years. I tried the usual "weed selective" Ortho's Weed Be Gone sold through the warehouse stores to no avail. For that matter, it's totally disappointing at removing most any weed to include even a dandelion. I then studied Do My Own Pest Control's web site and learned of SpeedZone Southern Herbicide. Good stuff! Does what a selective weed killer is suppose to do. A little pricey but you get a large quantity that will last for quite some time.

This stuff isn't worth the shipping and the shipping is free. I used it once and nothing happened. Two weeks later I re-read the directions, mixed it a little stronger with the same results. I should of put 82.50 in a blender and dumped it on the lawn. Everything else I bought here has worked great. I had to give it one star because it won't let you give a zero.

May be the best
By Anonymous on 07/12/2013
We live in Fresno, Ca. Where "Everyone" has a gardener. Jose is a pretty bright guy and had this stuff on his truck. He applied it and it worked great. It seems to work better on more weeds than even Montery Chemicals. It is Very effective on spurge without burning the Bermuda.

Effective against wild violet
By Meredith on 06/12/2017
I have been trying without success to control the wild violets taking over my lawn. Other products would not phase the weed, where others would turn the leaves yellow but not kill it. But, SpeedZone Southern herbicide has done what other herbicides could not. I am pleased with this product.

Quicker than you think
By B on 01/19/2016
Proven winner for Southern turf. Kills broadleaf weeds faster than the rest. The added ingredient Carfentrazone is the key to the "Speed" Follow the instructions, use the proper equipment, and watch the weeds die.

Not as effective as expected
By Daniel on 03/15/2017
After sprayed it and a couple of weeks later the effectiveness of this thing killings weeds would be at 30%!, too low for the price
Thank you for your comments! We are sorry that you did not get the desired results from using the Speedzone. Keep in mind that more mature plants or late-summer or fall weeds may require multiple applications of post-emergent herbicides. If you would like to tell us more about what specific weeds you are targeting, then we would be happy to troubleshoot with you. We appreciate your feedback and your business!
By David on 06/08/2017
Tried several products from the box stores, none worked on the creeping beggar weed. SpeedZone worked great with one application.
caution when using
By Victor on 04/23/2017
Be careful what time of year you choose to use it. DO NOT USE when grasses are in transition, it will cause clubbing. Can not use on freshly laid sod. It's an awesome herbicide when used with celsius and a sticker, but don't use a sticker when temps reach above 85.
By Tom on 06/07/2016
I was doubtful as I have tried Image and other products to eliminate Dollar weed with no luck. I applied Speedzone at a rate of 1 1/2 oz per gallon. 10 days later the dollar weed is gone and grass looks great.
By Mark on 03/19/2016
I put SpeedZone Southern out early in the season. Probably too early but I had a lot of weeds. I watched it for a couple of days but saw no results. After a couple of weeks the weeds started turning brown and dying. In time it worked great but I really think if I had waited until spring officially began it might have worked even faster.
Got rid of Japanese-Knot-Weed
By Milc on 06/21/2014
Nothing worked well against Japanese-Knot-Weed until we found SpeedZone. We are glad we finally got rid of them. For other wide leaf weeds, I wish our State allows us to use the stronger one (red label).

Not too happy
By Sharon on 07/31/2011
I'm STILL pulling weeds. I've applied this twice and it kills only a fraction of the weeds in my GA lawn. This was too expensive to not work.
By Jason on 04/30/2014
Fast noticeable results next day found several weeds which started turning brown or dropping Did not hurt our Cody & Bowie buffalo grass and blue grass Smell is not as strong or long lasting as other products just enough smell to let you know its there.
By Bob on 07/18/2017
Had problem with dollar weeds in my beds, were getting taller then some of the plants. One application of this and 6 days later they appear to be dead, killed several other weeds. Will try this in the St Aug grass when temps cool down below 85. So far very happy with results.
