    Just curious: Did she offer to pay you to pour the bleach on those weeds? Did she at least ask you how much you'd charge her to do that?

    If she didn't, she's just not showing you any respect, in my opinion. Is there any reason she couldn't pour the bleach on those weeds herself?

    Hate to say this But. If you pour anything on weeds on a customers lawn, not only do you need to be licensed, but whatever you pour on them needs to be labeled for that use.
    There was an article in "Turf" a few months ago about using vinegar for controlling weeds and it went into this. There is a vinegar on the market labeled for weed control BTY.
  7. Was there a point to this, or are you now a weed control specialist, or you know someting about bleach clean weeds....................

    I wouldn't do it if I were you. Hope you didn't.

    Lol! There is no way Id pour bleach on weeds. They either pay me to spray the weeds with registered chemicals or nothing!

    That's not true. Well, not true everywhere. You don't NEED to be licensed in my state to apply herbicides.
