View Full Version : killing grass in ground cover?

05-23-2007, 10:59 PM
I am about to sound like a newbie here.

I am wondering/hoping someone can recommend some type of product to kill grass (and only grass) in ground cover in landscaping beds. The ground cover is mostly myrtle, some periwinkle, and a bit of pachysandra.

Is licensing require to spray herbicides or just pesticides in MI?

Check the label on Envoy.

Herbicides ARE pesticides.

Hope those beds are yours.....

Check out Fusilade by LESCO.

FYI...Fusilade is a syngenta item and no longer sold by lesco.
They do have a replacement...sethoxydim.
Not sure about what it's labelled for.

Jeeze Harley -- I don't know. I just got off the phone with the Omaha LESCO. John was busy (he hired me in '78 when he was the ChemLawn manager), so I talked to "some new guy". Seemed I knew more about it than him. Sorry I can't help you on this.

Spot spray grass with apple cider vinegar in full concentrate. You wont have to worry about leaching. If you dont care what you kill just use bleach. Lemon scent or botanical orchids. your choice
