    What is the best way to get rid of wweeds in parking lots. I have a commercial property the has weeds growwing in between the curbs and the asphalt and some in the cracks of the asphalt. What is the best thing i can do to get rid of these and rid myself of this problem. We have used roundup and of course as soon as some die new ones are popping up. Just looking for suggestons.

    Thanks in advance,:hammerhead:

    NuFarm sells a product called ProDeuce it is Glyphosate and Prodiamine in one mix so it does the pre and post emergent work at one time.

    I think you can get it in 2.5 gal jugs or in 1/2 gal bottles.

    Once I have my Limited license I will be using the stuff alot! It is $64 a 1/2 gallon @ Lesco and I am waiting for ProSource One to give me a price as well.

    A soil sterilent such as Vegemec(from Gordons) keeps curblines and sidewalk cracks weed free for 6-9 months, it also kills existing weeds although we mix it with roundup for a quicker kill. The cheapest product of its kind and the best. 1/5 the price of Sahara(lesco)

    Doesn't the new Homedepot roundup advertise that kils and keeps them away for a year? Guess it has pre-m in it now.
