Many homeowners struggle with maintaining their lawns, flower and vegetable gardens, landscapes, wooded areas, and water features. Insects and diseases are an occasional nuisance, but weeds are a constant problem. Despite homeowners' best efforts, it seems like weeds proliferate and get worse every year. Some species seem downright impossible to control! Many consumers believe the persuasive claims local retailers make, and then put their hopes in commercially available herbicides. Unfortunately, many products available to homeowners can be a huge disappointment. Sometimes that might be because homeowners disregard instructions and apply the products at rates far lower or higher than the instructions recommend. This is a very risky proposition that can possibly damage other plants, harm the people applying the herbicides, or result in poor weed control.
