    Is there a granular hebicide that could be used to apply to a clay tennis court. This thing gets invested with weeds mid summer. Is spraying it the only way to go?

    I think liquid round-up would be the best and safest thing to use. you could add a pre-m also

    Is the court surrounded by turf or plants? if so, are they susceptible to runoff from water off the court?

    Reason I ask is that a soil sterilant would be a good idea for something like this. Pramitol comes in both liquid and granular and works pretty well at keeping anything from coming up for about a year. Also others like Sahara.
    Sterilants have a tendency to leach off target if you have any heavy rains within a few weeks after application though, thus killing things you didn't mean too.

    I agree - a soil sterilent that was watered in would work.

    Run off shouldn't be an issue. I will look for a soil sterilant. Thanks for the help

    Call a clay court company and ask them. Or try a local country club w/clay courts and ask their grounds guys.
