    I'm looking for a powder type grass/weed killer to apply on a processed gravel driveway and then water it.This is my driveway . Is it worth it or should i stick with a liquid?
    Thank's for any info

    Never heard of a powder that you water in. Just spray with Round-up.

    IMHO I would suggest staying with RoundUp and adding a pre-emerge to the tank mix even for spot treatments. This might give you better control.

    Premerge the heck out of it on a regular basis with Preen or Pendamithalin but if its a nice cobblestone deal you may get some staining.

    Other than that Id use Scythe. F roundup anymore.

    Yes, In fact it might work tooooooo good. You might just kill what yo don't want to kill, likes trees, turf and shrubs from run off.


    Try Pendant, it is non-staining.
