Exactly round-up Pro , you may want to add Sythe or another additive to make it super strong.

Just curious

Powerreel: Is that "on-the-rocks" or a "shaken-not-stirred" mix???

We use Round-Up Pro.

Here, Roundup Pro only works on grasses.

You could try a sterilent. I used Trilox by Ortho on a small rock bed island between parking lots one year. It worked great. I had no growth of any kind for the entire year.

Before, for three years, I had to spray Roundup Pro about every 6 weeks to control the different growths. The Trilox was expensive because I bought it retail and I never looked at buying it or another brand wholesale. But even at what I paid, it saved me soooo much in overall time as well as Roundup product applied.

I'd like to put my two cents worth in. Identify the major weed or weeds first. If you are having an annual problem why not try a pre-emergent such as Diuron, I use it on my tree farm and keeps out certian broadleafs and annual grasses. If you are set on returning after every rain fall to spray newly germinated weeds thats fine. Before you take the simple route, do a little investigating. Roud-up has its place but you can go a step further.
