    Certainty, Image or Lontrel are options for broadleaf weed control. Ronstar Flo will also contribute to weed control as well. It is labeled as a preemergent, but it burns up lots of broadleaf weeds. Conifers are very tolerant of that material. For me, going under and around plants with a calibrated wand is more cost effective and time efficient that having to stay there and hand weed.

    Here we go, the old, "Pesticides are for killing bugs, I'm spraying herbicides, so I don't need no stinking Pesticide license", routine.

    P.S.: They need to change the title of this Forum, it is very misleading to people who don't know that Pesticide is a general term for Insecticide, herbicide, fugicide, rodenticide etc, etc. All pests, and all controled by........Pesticides. I remember one guy argueing the fact that this thread is named Pesticide & herbicide application, so that proves there is a difference.

    Take those nasty bushes out, I joyfully remove every juniper I am allowed to remove.
    They are a maintenance nightmare, however they are good cover for every weed tat wants a chanceto grow.
    Best of all if there is a piece of trash blowing down the street it will collect it fr you.
