Weeds in gravel drive - help me smoke em

I've been spraying with Round Up Pro Dry with great effectiveness, but way too often!!!
2-3 times a month is not enough!!


I've got somw Ortho Triox that I tried last year w/ NO success!
(Could it be my fault?)

I want something that will keep the weeds down for a while, a long while preferably.

Soil sterilants sound harsh, but...

Any comments / suggestions?

PLEASE HELP!
I'm loosing time and $ on this repeated spraying!

Soil Sterilants may be the answer. Just be absolutly certain that there are not any trees (or other desirables) any where near the treated area. My rule is 200 feet with large trees.

Sterilants for gravel drives is the best way to go. Give Vegemec or Tordon a try.

Thanks for the help.

Sounds like there may be a problem. There is a juniper bed on both sides of the drive. A couple of palms within 25ft. as well.

I just sprayed a combination of Prosecuter and Sahara with good results. Now I will just wait and judge the long term effects.

Round Up, Confront, Surflan, Finale, R-11 and NOTHING will grow in the gravel for a long time. (2oz, 2oz, 3oz, 2oz, 1oz to the gallon)
