Spraying beds and dry ditches

Picked up a commercial mowing account with quite a few beds and a very long ditch that stays dry but must be cut with a trimmer.

Is there a mix I could use in my solo backpack at a low volume that will keep the weeds down and reduce trimming and bed clean ups?

Regular gly mix should last 3-4 weeks with spot spraying in between. I've got sureguard but have not seen great results at low volume application.

In beds with plant material we have always used Gly+Simazine. In areas with no plant material we use Gly + Imazapyr. Currently we are using Sahara with the Gly.

Thanks. I have looked into imazapyr. It looks like a product especially for vines.

Since I will be spraying a combo of drive cracks, beds with plants and trees, and some ditches(if they will dry out) I am worried about movement into root zones.

Gly with surfactant may be my best route and maybe mixed with some prodiamine.

Ive used gly w/ surfactant mixed with surflan for gravel drives and paver walkways with good results. The gly I use is Credit 41 extra and is labeled for use with surflan.
