    Is their anything I can spray on juniper to take care of braudleafe? I know you can use Fusalad (I think that is what it is called) for grassy weeds but it will not take care of braudleafe. If you use a spray for braudleafe on it, it kills the juniper. Is their anyway to take care of this besides pulling them?

    Simazine can be applied to juniper. Even though it is a pre-emergent, Simazine does have post-control ability on some broadleaf weeds. Even if you don't kill the present weeds, you still have the value of the pre-emergent.

    You'd have to check the product label, but Image is also commonly used as an over-the-top method. Not sure if it is labled for juniper.

    If they are already growing a pre-emergent is not going to help him with his immediate problem ..now is it?

    Simazine is also a post-emergent. Read my post again more closely.
