f2 is what the guys at Lesco sold me today for the same thing. Go easy on the app rate and expect several apps to completly kill it.

One app will get the majority of it. Takes a few weeks to burn off, though. A second app. will be necessary, maybe a third. I have an account that I have to give #2 to tomorrow. Good luck.

have the same problem on one of my properties.
used roundup must wear gloves to do this it works
wear gloves, moisten small rag and wipe plant with
roundup. takes time depending on how much you have
in junipers

you plant it, I'll maintain it

I agree with using Fusilade II but it will only kill the grasses and not the broadleaf. The only way I know to get the broadleafs out is to either hand weed or use a wick and round up.

If anyone has a better way to get the broadleafs out let me know.:D

I use Poast or Vantage. It has to be mixed with crop oil and may need two applications. it is a grass herbicide and will not harm the junipers. Also works good on getting bermuda out of monkey grass.:)

I always have good results with Fusilade II.

I have had excellent results with "over the top". I think Fertilome makes it. It too only kills grass. I have read somewhere that junipers are strangely enough, unaffected by roundup. If this is true then you could spray directly on the junipers. I would definitely check this out before spraying though. Good luck!

I am using Fusilade II to get rid of Bermuda in my fescue lawn. It looks as though it is working.

Someone on this forum had the idea of spraying 1/2 strength several times to make sure the fescue doesn't get burned out. This is what I am doing.

I believe Fusilade II is designed for plants and flowers- not necesarily lawns, but it can be used for either.

In the last two weeks my Bermuda has not grown at all and is not nearly as green as it used to be. I think this is from the 2 applications of Fusilade II.

In my area, the bermuda patches are really taking a foothold this year. They have spread very rapidly and are becoming a problem quick. Next season I will begin offering bermuda control and would like to hear more imput about Fusilade II for control in Fescue / Blue Grass lawns. I have never used it. I will be spot treating with Solo backpack sprayers. What rate do you mix and do you need any other adjuvants? What is the cost of the product?

I use a product called Ornamec. It is an "over the top" herbicide. It is labeled for over 500 plant species. You can spray the plants in the beds and not harm them. It is put out by Gordon's.

Ornamec and Fusilade II are the same product.

Yep. Same active ingredient. ;)
