    our church grave yard 3 acres,has a old creek gravel road that goes throught the back part to drive through.i do all the work there.we have tryed stuff like round-up and another name from our coop but it does not last long.the road is in the shade all day long being covered by 100 yr old oak trees.it is some grass but lots of weeds.is there anything better than the store stuff and if so,i would rather a pro spray it and get it gone.

    you could use pramatol, its a soil sterilant and should keep the grass and weeds out of the gravel for the whole year. just be sure and spray it when there is no rain expected for the week because it can be washed out into non target ares if your not careful. but it works great. you can get it at tractor supply or other farm supply store's.

    If the pramitol got down into the ground where the decaying bodies are , the smell would make it's way up and into the air & would be a smelly mess for miles.
    Dead bodies and pramitol do not mix at all
