Roundup Super Concentrate: Instructions

It’s spring and for me, it means it’s time for me to get rid of weeds. I have posted on this topic in the past (https://janedata.wordpress.com/2010/04/17/hose-end-sprayer/) but it is good to repeat it from time to time. Especially after our recent rains, weeds seem to sprout up everywhere.

Before using this product, however, I remove the above-ground vegetation with a lopper and take out as much of it as I can reasonably manage – no small task sometimes!

If you are like me, and weeds seem to cover a large area, I fill my hose-end sprayer container with Roundup Super Concentrate (the one with the PURPLE cap). Below are brief instructions of “How To” use this product, but for those who love detailed instructions (which are also on the bottle), here are detailed manufacturer’s instructions on how to use this product: http://www.scotts.com/smg/catalog/productTemplate.jsp?proId=prod70348&itemId=cat50096&tabs=usage

HOW TO: I fill the hose-end sprayer bottle with Roundup Super Concentrate between 1/4 to 1/2 full, depending on how much area I plan to treat. The Roundup Super Concentrate is poured directly into the hose-end sprayer up to the 1/4 to 1/2 full line. I attach the hose-end sprayer to the water hose. Per the Roundup Super Concentrate instructions, I adjust the hose-end sprayer dial to 2-1/2 ounces mark (which means 2-1/2 ounces of concentrate per gallon of water).

I turn on the water hose and then spray the weed-affected area with the hose-end sprayer. When the concentrate is used up, I refill the bottle with more concentrate and repeat the process.

I will be buying more of this product in the coming weeks. It’s a valuable weapon in my arsenal of garden maintenance tools.
