    I HAVE A COMMERCIAL PROPERTY IN HOUSTON, TX THAT I MAINTAIN EVERY OTHER WEEK. THIS PROPERTY HAS ALOT OF ASIAN JASMIN AND I AM LOOKING FOR A WEED KILLER THAT WILL NOT IN ANY WAY HARM THE JASMINE BUT GET RID OF ALL THE WEEDS. I HAVE BEEN TOLD TO LOOK INTO TRI-MEC AND ORNAMEC. HAS ANYONE EVER USED THESE PRODUCTS AND IF SO HOW DID IT WORK? OR IS THERE ANOTHER PRODUCT THAT WOULD WORK BETTER? WHERE WOULD YOU GET IT?

    thanks :confused:

    Weclome to lawnsite. Roundup mixed 1% A.I. will not harm jasmine or many other woody ornamentals. Roundup mixed 20% A.I. will kill an oak tree. Roundup mixed .25% A.I. will act as a growth regulator on most grass and as a select borad leave control. This Rate is very effective on sandspurs.

    If you are a certified and licensed pesticide operator then you should know how to calculate A.I. If you are not, then you should not be breaking the law by applying any chemicals.

    Fusilade, ornamec, and over the top by fertilome are all great products and have very extensive labels for several zones. The price is pretty different for each one but all three work well.
    If you are looking for preemergence control then I would suggest ronstar by chipco or good old treflan under some lable or another. It depends on when and what you are treating.
    Hope that gives you a start.
