Weeds in stones under deck
I am looking for a product to prevent weeds from growing under our deck and kill the ones that are there now. The deck is about 10 feet above this area, which is stone and gravel, so sunlight does get there but rain/water doesn't. I use Glyphosate to kill growing stuff but it doesn't prevent new growth. What would you recommend?
Pramitol 25E is a better solution for what you are wanting to accomplist. It is a non-selective, bare ground herbicide. It will kill and eliminate anything growing for at least a year. Caution should be used during application as some leaching in the soil could occur and destroy nearby desirable vegetation and turfs. The Pramitol needs to be mixed at the rate of 8 ounces per each gallon of water at the lowest dilution and can be used up to 32 ounces per gallon for harder to kill brush. Time of plant death will depend on how much product is absorbed through the root system, if it is irrigate after application and if the plant is under any stress to cause it to not absorb the product as quickly. It could be days or weeks before complete death is visible in the weeds you are treating. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
