Only problem is I tried just using water (as a trial to see if it would leak) and it is to thin and wants to drip as I walk between the beds. Now I could carry it around in a bucket but that would be a pain.
This brings me to my question. What can I add to it to thicken it up enough not to want to drip? Thanks for your suggestions.
RoundUp as a paint on application may be kept as concentrated as 1 part RoundUp to 3 parts water. I use a 4 oz bottle sold for applying grout sealants. It is a squeeze bottle with a small bristle brush at the top. It does not take much touched to a weed and it is way safer than a sprayer to desirable shrubs.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
