Advice on Weed!

OK you stoners, I mean on KILLING weeds.

I just had a professional service clean up my yard. I have a lot of chain link fence, and I get lots of weeds near the fence lines, especially nasty stuff like poison sumac and poison ivy. I'd like to get rid of it all, especially now, since it's all been weed whacked down to the ground level.

I was going to spray a bunch of Roundup behind my shed and in other areas along my fence line to keep these weeds from growing back.

Came across this:

Have you ever used vinegar as a weed killer? I'd rather use something eco friendly. I hate Monsanto and frankly, think Roundup may be a bit dangerous to use. Thoughts or other alternatives that have worked for you?

Soak all the weeds in antifreeze. Round up all the stray dogs and cats in your neighborhood and put them in your yard. Two birds, one stone.

If you use RoundUp, get the concentrated stuff and dilute it yourself. Make a strong batch and it will last a lot longer.

Kitchen vinegar probably isn't strong enough to kill most weeds, and horticultural vinegar is more dangerous (to humans) than roundup, really.

We're about to battle our Creeping Charlie problem and did some research last night on what to use. From what I read, Ortho Weed-B-Gon Max has worked out the best for others. Creeping Charlie is extremely difficult to get rid of, so I would assume the Ortho would kick the crap out of your weeds.

As far as the vinegar weed killer method... According to our old neighbor, that method worked, but we nicknamed her "Yard Douche" after she made our backyard reek like Summer's Eve.

Glyphosate is made by virtually everybody. If you buy that roundup branded bullshit at Walmart, you may do better to piss on it. But you can get Glyphosate and not pay the evil empire pretty easily.

Are you going to do this yourself with a hand sprayer or what? Do you know anyone with a private applicators license that can give you a little bit or are you going to have to do this with what you can buy at the hardware store?

Ask Buehler_445.. His dad hooked me up with some nasty shit for the yard. It should be labeled death angel... No matter what I spray it on, in about 4 days its toast.

No it won't. Unless it is more than just roundup. Glyphosate has no residual control.

If you want to get rid of ALL vegetation, I would use vegetation killer. You have to reapply it every 6 months but it should kill everything. Useful for driveways.

Poison Sumac in Independence MO?

I don't think vinegar would be strong enough to kill poison ivy.
