    I plan to spray some future landscape beds to kill out everything with round up so that I can plant new landscaping trees, bushes and so forth.

    Question is how long after I spray should I wait to do my planting? I plan on scalping the area first, then soaking it all down with RU.

    If I remember correctly round up didnt leave any residue and only affected plant matter by the intake of the chemical with nothing left behind. I don't want to kill $1000 in stuff by planting to soon.

    Don't know off the top of my head. The label will need to be examined.

    I have slit seeded a lawn and then sprayed Round Up immediately after. Round Up will not affect seeds - only plant tissue.

    Does ANYONE ever read the label? The chemical companies spend more money than most people will have in their lifetime to answer questions like this and they put it all right there in the label!

    Lowe. Immediately. Glenn. Yes. I wouldn't suggest scalping the lawn before you spray RU, the more surface area the better the kill

    The whole process seems screwed up.

    I too suggest reading.
