What is the mix ratio of Blade Herbicide for residential yards?

I have read the directions of .125 dry ounce per acre but when dealing with a 1 gal hand pump sprayer and spot treating a 1/4 acre residential property what is the ratio per gal?


Blade Herbicide is really meant to be used on larger spaces and calculating usage rates for smaller spaces can be a bit of a challenge for homeowners. You will need to use 0.03125 oz of Blade for your 1/4 acre property. We recommend that you mix that in at least 5-10 gallons of water (+ 1 teaspoon of surfactant per gallon of water). Most people use a bucket and then transfer the mixture to their sprayer 1 gallon at a time. You need to make sure you are evenly distributing the spray over the area that needs to be treated.
