    What is the best type of weed and grass killer? Where do you all get it from? I have a commercial account that needs to be sprayed around different tanks, driveways and offices.

    What is the best mixture you use? B/c I just bought some last night. But wanted to check around with you guys see what you use.

    I know to read the label but since he has used it before he might no a better mixture for better results.

    What exactly did you buy? There are many "weed-killers" out there, and there are many different uses. For instance, if you bought a general defoliant, to use "be sprayed around different tanks, driveways and offices", you're probably not going to go using it in or near beds or turf areas. As far as mixing rate goes, it depends on what it is, and what you intend on doing with it. This is why I say (and say all the time), that the best thing to do, if you are unsure, or not licensed, is hire someone to do it for you. It's pretty much fool-proof, then.

    Mix 1.3 oz to 1 gal of water (~ 100:1) will generally do the trick. I'm assuming you are licensed.

    3-way @ Lesco. Keep in mind 3-way is essentially a broadleaf herbicide and not a "grass killer" Fact is that it will have little or no effect on grasses. As far as I know 3-way doesn't have a formulation with MSMA, nontheless, you can mix both in the tank. Trimec-plus has MSMA included in the formulation. What are you trying to control?
