    what i was plaining on doing was
    1.weed wack all the weeds in the beds
    2. useing my 50 gal lesco tank sprayer ...
    a. spray the beds with pendimethalin
    b. spray them with a momentum/pendimethalin mix
    (at this time it is all broadleaf weeds
    a few ann. blue grass plants that i will take out with round-up..

    do you think the pendimethalin will stain the stone driveway?(see picture)

    the pictures are only some of the beds(worst ones)

    how would you guys go about it?
    they are doing the clean up i am only doing the weed wack and spraying work

    A lot can depend upon the types of plants in the beds. Some plants will die with certain types of herbicides present. In OHIO, you need to have a Hort. licence to apply weed control to beds. There is a good reason for it.

    Why not Round-Up? Wouldn't that be cheaper? Then put down a good pre-m and sell your client more mulch.
