Weed Shield

Overview:
Selective broadleaf herbicide that is odor free and contains 96% less active ingredients than other three-way herbicides.

Equipment & Application Rates:

A well-maintained lawn will typically have 5% weed coverage.  This means for a 20,000 square foot lawn at any given time 1,000 square feet of your lawn has weeds.  Rather than blanketing your lawn with chemicals we recommend spot treating the weeds you see every 30 days during the months of April through September.

Weed Shield should be applied to actively growing small weeds when temperatures are between 60 and 80 degrees.  Avoid using Weed Free during periods of excessive drought.

Add 10 ounces of Weed Shield to 1 gallon of water.  This mixture will treat 1,000 square feet of weeds.  One jug of Weed Shield will provide multiple years of treatments for a well maintained 20,000 square foot lawn.  Weed Shield is generally not recommended for newly established lawns as a result of the high weed pressure that is typically seen on new lawns.    For best results, use a Branch Creek Pump Free System.

Performance:
Weed Free® is based upon micro-technology that enables the application to penetrate more efficiently into broadleaf weeds, resulting in significantly less active ingredient being required to kill weeds.  Results are typically visible within 24 hours of application and Weed Free® will kill weeds down to the roots.

Other Information

Safety Profile:
EPA Registered Pesticide with No Signal Word throughout the growing season.  For hard to control weeds a second application of Weed Free® is recommended 14 days after the initial treatment.

Apply September 1st – October 15th
