    It says you can mix it with round up. I was just wondering if any one has ever done it with Weed b Gone. Just Curious. Yes, I have a license. This is supposed to be a forum to help,share and give opinions. If you don't know, don't Reply.

    the 2 are for diffrent things, awful expensive to spray flower beds with sledgehammer, and weed b gone will blow holes in the turf, why would you want to mix them- just curious---- but by all means you can.

    Thanks for your reply, I never said i was going to. A friend of mine asked me to spray a house for him. I just Mixed a batch of weed b gone. I was just tring to avoid buying another sprayer. This the first time i have used Manage. Also Its going to be sprayed on a lawn, not a flower Bed. On another note, Why is every one on this forum so Quick to be Sarcastic Rather Than Helpful??

    Because we spend a good deal of money and great number of hours learning our trade, and protecting the responsibility that comes with it.

    When a question doesn't sound right, some feel it is better to discourage an unlicensed and/or untrained user rather than risk the backlash that reverberates throughout the entire industry.

    Why do you say Weed-B-gone will blow holes in the turf??

    Your confused LawnDawg, Weed-b-gone is a registered product manufactured by Ortho and it is a selective post emergent weed control guaranteed not to damage turf. Glyphosphate, the active in Round-up, is now sold under many names but weed-b-gone is not one of them.
