Weeds and crabgrass are growing thru the artificial turf and also around the trees. Someone suggested that I spray Roundup and allow the weeds to die. I have never purchased weed killer before (used to manually weed as needed, but this is a large area) - does one product work better than others?

If at all possible, I am hoping to make the situation โ€œbetterโ€ by this weekend.

Thanks.

With the regular Round up the weeds will grow back asap. With the 365 it will help control the weeds for around a year with the soil sterilizer if the round up is applied in adequate amounts. Glyphosate will not kill plants unless it is sprayed on the leaves . With out looking up the other ingredients I don't know if the 365 is a soils sterilant or a growth inhibitor that will keep the seeds from germinating. Look up the data sheets to be sure the ingredient don't kill the trees or other bushes.

I'm just curious what happens when you spray that stuff on Astroturf.

the patent on gysophate ran out so there are a lot of brands just as good as round up. i suggest you get a pump sprayer and concentrate and spray it on the stuff you want to get rid of . buying the premix is jsut paying a lot for water

For less than $20

I'd avoid Roundup for its been linked to causing Cancer.
Do a search and do some serious reading, I'd personally avoid it at all costs.

crackmeup I was mostly wondering if it would discolor the turf. But yes, hopefully the turf is dead after.

Roundup would take a week to kill it anyway. Why not just salt the area if you want it all to stay dead?

This time of the year is optimum for applying pre-emergent along with weed killer. Pre-emergent keeps the weeds from germinating.

I spray glyphosate mixed with Surflan. Youโ€™ll need to go somewhere other than a box store to find anything other than diluted consumer stuff.

You get what you pay for...
So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.

Using it in a lawn a few times a year he's fine. Spraying 50 acres of crop that's a whole other issue.

Why take the chance? I've seen enough people who never get a second chance because of Cancer.

Can anything grow through AstroTurf?

Another possibility is that weeds are growing in dirt that has deposited itself over time or through bird droppings.
