I use Gallery and dimention mixture after weeding or before weeds sprout. It is a lot of money and I do not believe you will be able to buy it without na pesticide license. I am sure you can find someone to sub it out to.
I would be happy to help if I was close.
Good Luck

Please do not use Ornamec or Fusilade over the top of Juniperus horizontalis unless you have a source of free replacements. Envoy or Sethoxydim is much safer. Broadleaf weeds might be controlled by either Lontrel or Image. If your CPO only treats cool season grasses, that is why he does not want to have Image in the tank. If he does not have a tree and shrub only tank, no way would he put in the grass herbicides.

Much could be covered with an engine drive backpack and a spray gun. Very easy to wash those things out so there is no cross contamination.

Yall are over complicating this. I spray round up around juniper all the time and some times a light spray over the top if bermuda is coming through and I never killed one. You don't want to drench the juniper but if some gets on it I doubt it will kill it. License is just a tax. Read the label and follow is more important than if you have a license. I'm licensed and some stuff still confuses me..

Thanks. I could have looked at the label but it was easier just to ask

depending on the type of juniper, someone can hold up branches, and diluted round up can be sprayed. I wasn't aware that image was labeled for juniper...I'm going to go check that label! I have a tank that I use image in.

Full blown image, with 1/3 to 1/2 oz of non selective herb, Per gal. Use on 5' x 5' area, where you have issues. Nuke it. Watch it. Remember what happens. You will never have to ask. How much to replace the juniper vs all the stuff you heard about guys doin it, get where IM going. Rates are always adjustable. Within the law of the label. Stay away from dwarf variety's and ones with blight present.

If you're weed-whipping that often you may do your client and yourself a favor by ripping up the roots and followup with mulch this Fall...
Irrigation strategy here is to let the ground dry out enough to prevent the weeds from growing much, if at all... tearing at the roots all summer long should do the trick... 50' of garden should take less and less time each time you do it...
It may seem like a big job at first but it is only horticulture sohave fun with it...
