Ronstar not available for purchase? Sure is, for sale to commercial applicators and nursery men. Anyone selling Ronstar to an unlicensed mowing man or homeowner is breaking the law. It is also legal to apply it to landscaped beds in residential areas.

Personally, I'm going to have to agree with Florida Gardener and greendoctor on this one.. Preventative maintenence should be taking care of most of your weed problems in the first place and if you are mowing or trimming by the beds and you see a freshie pop up, yes, you should get off your mower and grab it. Most importantly, and Florida Gardener touched on this, this should all be figured into all of your estimates in the first place. Most folks who pay for lawn service just want to see perfection, nice lawn, nice flower beds, nice shrubs and bushes, nice patio, nice landscape effects, ... If you can be the guy that gives these people the peace of mind that they NEVER have to think about/worry about a single blade of grass being one tenth of centimeter too long...... You will be priceless. So...... Do not sell yourself short.... and price accordingly...........
Don't a lot of tree and crop growers spray gly around the base of the plants?
