    Why? We are in an eco sensitive lake area and roundup and other herbicides are not an option.

    Very slow and ineffective. (expensive and laborious) Just burns off tops and weeds return within a couple of weeks. You would be better off to just hand pick. Also who says that burning propane is safer for the environment?
