    I am trying to find out what the best commercial weed killer is to buy. I would like something that will take care of almost everything and will last for several months, What are you guys out there using that is the most effective.

    Where are you using it? (Lawn, garden, etc) What are you trying to accomplish? What is this for, are you using it on a customer's property?

    I am using it on customers property. In a parking lot area and and to keep weeds down from growing up on a chain link fence. Also I would like a good spray for flower beds.

    If you're trying to kill everything.....go with old reliable.....Roundup. It'll kill everything it touches. Buy it in concentrate at Home Depot, it'll be cheaper.

    If you're only killing weeds, not grasses, and spraying on the lawn, use Lesco's Momentum. 1 Gallon concentrate will make more than you'll ever use for spot spraying, and runs about $65. I always keep a batch mixed up and touch up the weeds in my lawn every couple weeks.....works great. Technically you need a Commercial Pest. license for them to be able to sell it to you though.
