    Been using Round up concentrate untill this weekend when I piked up a bottle of this stuff called Spectracide tripple threat (or something like that). Sprayed the weeds out back yesterday & now their almost brown & crunchy. It seemed to take one to two weeks for Round up to get them.

    John Deere Landscapes here in Charlotte sells it. If they have one by you I bet they would sell it. Quickpro is a granular product that you dissolve in water. Comes in a jug that looks like Tide or some other laundry detergent. Says it's "powered by Roundup."

    I just saw it at Deere Landscapes yesterday and once my Prosecuter from Lesco runs out I will probably pick up a jug of this stuff. I belive it was 102 for 6.8 pounds. Not sure but thats what I remember.

    I stay with my slow working generic roundup thats $14 a gallon when I buy a 30 gallon shuttle. Dead is dead.

    If you are lucky to get your hands on a product called Accord. By all means grab it.

    A 1/4 cup of granules mixxed with 250 gallons of water. It will kill everything that it touches from grass to Multi Foral Roses.

    Ranger Pro by Mansanto - same thing as Roundup Pro, same company. Cost = $75.00 per 2.5 gallons

    Buccaneer Plus is what we use,...$48.00 for 2.5 gallons and mixed 4 oz. to 1 gallon of water. Been using it since Monsanto lost the patent on RoundUp but your mix sounds good too. It does take a couple of weeks to act though. I'll check on that tomorrow. JW

    Just picked up the prosecuter granular which is the same as the QuickPro-Both work very well inside a 24hr span. They are the same thing with different labeling. The addition of Diquat seems to be key in the speed of the product
