Q&A Home

Brenda from Port Hope, Mi writes,

May you recommend a product that kills grass in flower beds without killing flowers?

I would appreciate a product that does not harm the wildlife.


Grass Out Max is labeled for most landscape, home and garden and ornamental uses. Grass Out Max will ONLY kill grasses and will not effect flowers, shrubs, broadleaf crops or other broadleaf plants. Effectively kills more than 50 different grasses.

You will need to use 0.2-0.4 fl oz of Grass Out Max per 1,000 sq ft area. Like most other herbicides the exact amount of water you use is not important, it is just important to make sure you get the specified amount of product over a 1,000 sq ft area. For ease of mixing/measuring you can add the specified amount of product to 1 gallon of water to apply to a 1,000 sq ft area .
While this product will not direclty harm wildlife such birds, squirrells, rabbits etc. The label states:  Do not apply directly to water or to areas where surface water is present and  Do not apply where runoof is likely to occur. Please follow the safety and application instructions per the product label.
