QuikPRO is also available here in 1. 5 oz packs for smaller applications. Roundup QuikPRO is a wettable granular, non-selective post-emergent herbicide for commercial, industrial, non-crop and residential use.
QuickPRO has two active ingredients: 73. 3% glyphosate and 2. 9% diquat. The addition of diquat, along with the surfactant, gives you even faster burndown. It controls broadleaf and grass weeds, or woody brush and trees – roots and all.
Roundup Quick Pro is absorbed quickly by plants and is rain fast in about an hour. This super-fast dry time means rain won’t wash the Roundup away as easily and it works much faster than typical glyphosphate products.
Roundup QuikPRO comes with a convenient 1. 5 oz measuring cap, and 1. 5 oz. per 1 gallon of water.
Have been using Roundup QuikPro for several years now. Pros for this herbicide is that it goes inactive when it hits the soil, so no residual in the soil. It does not affect my trees when the mix hits the trunks or exposed non-feeding roots.
I can mix it with Triclopyr when I need to save time and kill everything, although some care is necessary because the Triclopyr has residual in the soil. The Diquat hits the weeds quickly, so I can tell areas that I have missed without using a dye and can reapply on spots.
The original Roundup formulation did not have the Diquat, so you had to wait for a week to see missed areas or a dye must be used. Cons, I have just one, some of my weeds laugh at it and I need to use the Triclopyr.
Caveat: I have not used any other brand of Glyphosate formulation so have no basis for brand comparison.
This easy mix and apply formula is one of the best weed control products on the market, bar none. Do not be fooled by the water downed formulas you purchase at your local home improvement stores, it is not the same.
This is a easy mix granular formula that mixes into a slurry mix, then when the rest of the water is added turns into a weed killing application like none other. I honestly suggest this product for residential or commercial applications.
Caution: you must apply to dry area, do not allow product to get wet from rain, sprinklers or hand watering at least two hours. You will see results within eight hours and thwarts off weeds for six to eight weeks.
The 6. 8 pound container makes 100 gallons of mix. No need to add a little, more mix to less water doesn’t make the solution stronger, just wastes your hard earned money, don’t be tempted to do such a thing.
The weapon of mass weed destruction. Best thing is that its in a granular form, so its cheap when you figure out the cost per oz vs gallons mixed. 1oz dry granules to one gallon of water and the weeds don’t stand a chance.
Works very quickly and I highly recommend this product, pro grade.

This product can be used anytime during the spring, summer or fall in flower and ornamental garden beds, around ground covers, trees and shrubs. Although this product will not kill existing weeds, it will prevent new weeds from sprouting eliminates the need for difficult and time consuming hand weeding.
There is no chance of overfeeding or burning your plants when used as directed. Without weeds, your valuable plants can grow larger and stronger. Your beds will stay neat and weed-free all season long.
Preen is great, it works fairly well, preventing weeds from sprouting-up. When using it, one must be sure to spread it all evenly; don’t be afraid to use lots of it. It’s always a great idea to spread the Preen down 1 or 2 days before a rainy-day, water activates the Preen…either by natural-rain, or by a water-hose.
I always rely on the rain, and it works-out for me. The Preen works for 3 months, preventing most all weeds, it does a great job. I highly recommend using this style of Preen. 1 of these full-unopened containers weighs 18 pounds.
Please see the 6 attached photos I provided for this review…I bought 2 of these containers. I highly recommend this product. Lastly, these containers afterwards can be used as storage buckets or for whatever…they are made of high-quality and recyclable plastics.
The Preen is shipped via Walmart-boxes with plenty of protective-packaging surrounding it. I was highly impressed with the shipping-and-handling of these 2 products, I bought 2.
This works pretty well, and isn’t scary to put on food crops. It’s a natural product made of corn and while it doesn’t prevent Weeds perfectly, it definitely makes an important difference and reduces the number and size of weeds, and seriously reduces the maintenance workload in my veggie garden.
I like to put it around established onions, beets, carrots, and beans – the things that are so hard to weed and hoe around.
I previously bought Preen labeled “organic” and now find it is labeled “natural. ” I went online and found Preen is very toxic to birds, animals, and humans if we get it on our hands. Be careful spreading this product around unless you have no regard for the environment.
It is not that it doesn’t work, but the labeling is deceiving. BE AWARE.
Don’t Pull Weeds and Grasses, Prevent Them! Introducing Roundup Landscape Weed Preventer which prevents weeds and grasses for up to 6 months, Guaranteed! * It creates a weed barrier and stops weeds from growing.
For best results, apply directly to soil around plants in Spring before weeds germinate and before mulching. And, when used as directed, it won’t harm your desirable plants and flowers! The easy to use built-in applicator provides even coverage.
Save time and energy with Roundup Landscape Weed Preventer. Outsmart weeds before they appear. A simple step towards a weed free landscape and garden!.
Here it is, April all ready and I am starting to see small weeds starting to sprout in the flower beds. I’m trying out roundup weed barrier this year to stop the never ending weeds. First I removed all the little sprouts prior to spreading the weed barrier.
Very easy to use with the bottle spout. The directions include a very small picture, which is supposed to show what the density of the granules should look like on the ground, but it is very hard to see, much better if you look online to find a better image.
I left part of the bed untreated for a comparison in a few months. I’ll report back later on the barrier results.
I put this on my beds shortly after receiving. My beds contain river rock stone and grass prevention is critical. In April, Michigan had 23 days of periodic rain. Bottom line I still have more grass than desired but I don’t blame it on Weed Barrier.
We are due for a warmer dryer week coming up. I plan on pulling the sprouted grass then re-applying the Weed Barrier. Weed Barrier packaging makes application very easy. I’m confident this product will solve the grass in bed problem.
Very easy to spread out because it is granules and not a powder. This way you can see exactly where you are putting it. This is important because it not only kills weeds , it also kills grass. You need to be careful not to get it on your lawn accidentally.
Just have to rake it in a little and then water and you are all set for 8 months. I do this before I mulch this way you will never get any weeds coming thru your mulch. A great product that doesn’t cost very much and can last 8 months.
Give your lawn what it needs for one of the most essential times to fertilize, fall. GreenView’s Fall Lawn Food formulation is a zero-phosphate, enhanced efficiency fertilizer with 20% slow-release nitrogen that promotes quick spring green-up.
It will also help make your lawn hardier and ready to withstand the stresses of winter. With improved nutrient absorption, your lawn will be better able to access water to protect against future heat and drought in the seasons to come.
I got this Greenview Fall Lawn Food to put on my (rather small) lawn. You do have to apply it with a drop spreader so that you don’t end up with too much in one place. I also got it more at the beginning of spring versus the beginning of fall.
I live in Michigan so our weather is pretty crazy. It does work really well as long as you follow directions. You’re going to want to apply it to a dry lawn, on a nice day (thing 60 degrees or more), and water well for a few days at least (don’t overwater though).
Applying in fall would certainly have made it easier. As we are approaching the middle of spring here, I can already see my lawn starting to look more lush and green. I’m so excited to see how it looks as summer comes!.
The fertilizer is easy to spread. Directions are clear and helpful. It’s tough to tell year to year how well the product works. If nothing else, all else being equal, I think the grass feels a bit more robust this Spring than previous springs.
So maybe chalk that up to the mix? Definitely follow the spreading instructions. A little goes a long ways. I did like the weight of the mix – it was easy to apply but didn’t blow around in high winds.
It appeared to find it’s way to the earth well. All in all, I’m fairly pleased.
I got this to try on an area of my yard that we are having problems with. The area was dug up 2 summers ago. We planted new grass there but it hasn’t done very well and gets burned up by the sun very easily.
I went out and applied this to a portion of that area right before it rained. I went back out to check on it about a week later. The grass in that area did have a darker color to. It seems like it’s going to help my grass.
The lawn food is kind of pellatized. It was easy to spread ( I just put it in a bucket and scooped it out with a cup). I didn’t notice any kind of smell to it when I was spreading it. I plan on putting this on the rest of the yard this weekend!.
Roundup For Lawns is a formula that kills weeds, not the lawn! It controls over 250 common lawn weeds, roots and all, and is especially effective on hard-to-kill weeds such as crabgrass, dandelion, clover and yellow nutsedge.
The ready-to-spray applicator is great for broadcast application to your entire lawn and covers up to 5000 square feet. This fast-acting formula starts killing on contact and kills weeds down to the root so they don’t come back.
In addition, its rainproof in as little as 3 hours! Roundup For Lawns is a simple step towards a beautiful, weed free lawn.
I am so sorry I used this on my Zoysia grass. Label plainly states is safe for Zoysia but I am letting you know “BEWARE”. My beautiful Zoysia lawn is turning brown after trusting Scotts claim ‘kills weeds not the lawn’.
I will never trust Scotts products again. I am so sorry I didn’t trust my instinct from the beginning. Kills weeds alright but apparently Zoysia too!.
I live in the woods and it is a fight to keep a lawn on much of the area close to my house. Over the years I have given in an allowed anything green to stay such as clover, violets and crab grass, but I do eradicate poison oak et al on sight.
I do have some rather large areas on the property where grass is well established and I thought it would be nice to have some expanse of beautiful solid lawn so my neighbors would understand that it isn’t my fault that the wooded areas might be sketchy.
It was easy to attach the bottle of “Roundup For Lawns” snugly to my garden hose, and though I had to drag a hundred feet of hose out into my field, that’s really not to much, when you consider this one bottle covers 5000 sq.
ft. which is an area 50′ X 100′. It took less than an hour in total, including re-reeling the hose. It was a sunny day. I had lunch and piddled around the garage and thought to observe. Barely 3 hours since I started spraying, carcasses of standing weeds were twisted and laying over, and by mid day next, dandelions were drooping and violets were mad at me.
That was yesterday. I can’t say yet that everything is coming up rye grass, but I am off to a good start and the product has been everything as advertised.
This product handled some of my weeds but still have a mixture of odd weeds and grasses. I applied this in between the early spring turf builder and the Thick R Lawn. It required a waiting time of 4 weeks before the Thick R Lawn could be applied.
Controls over 80 broadleaf weeds including Clover, Spurge, Chickweed, Thistle, see label for more. Safe on Kentucky Bluegrass, Bermudagrass, Bahiagrass, Zoysiagrass and more. See label for full list.
The rapid and effective weed killer provides evidence of injury within hours of application. For best results spray when broadleaf weeds are young and actively growing. Spring, summer or fall. Simply mix weed killer concentrate with water at suggested rate on label and spray lawn thoroughly.
This kills hard to control weeds like chamberbitter in destin fl. ,that other weed weed killers won`t kill. Dose not kill the grass. I have centipede. I like to spray in the morning about 10 am before it gets to hot.
I spot treat about every 10 days. It took a year at least to get my yard looking awesome. Don`t forget to feed your lawn.
I have tall fescue and my neighbors have dandelions, with one application of weed free zone my lawn is weed free. I do apply Weed Free Zone in the fall also. Normally anything as good a weed free zone would stunt the grass, but it doesnt effect it at all.
The best way to control weeds in the garden is to prevent them from getting started in the first place. Preen Extended Control garden weed preventer has a specialized formula to keep weed seeds from starting.
1-easy application of Preen Extended Control Garden Weed Preventer keeps over 125 broadleaf and grassy weeds from sprouting for up to 6-months. Your garden will stay weed-free all season long. Weeds rob desirable plants of water and other nutrients.
Preen garden weed preventer stops weeds and eliminates time-consuming weed pulling chores. With Preen you will be free to enjoy a beautiful weed-free landscape.
Spring is here, and the weeds are starting to pop up! My flower beds are huge, usually taking 40 bags of mulch each spring, and trying to control the weeds can be exhausting. This year, since I was given this Preen Weed Preventer to review, I took this opportunity to use it while putting on a new layer of mulch.
Following the directions I got rid of the weeds that had already popped up, and I used the application lid to spread Preen on top of the mulch and over a brick walkway that always gets so many weeds between the bricks.
Even though I applied it very liberally it only took 1/2 the bottle to do all of my flowerbeds and the walkway, plus under the deck. Since the product should last 6 months that gives me another application for the fall in the same container.
The granules are quick to spread with the application lid, and I haven’t seen any new weeds poke through the mulch or brick walk yet since applying it a couple weeks ago. I am happy with Preen so far and look forward to a great season of not pulling weeds.
This stuff is amazing for flower beds! By now in my neck of the woods I would normally be pulling weeds like mad from my beds and having a tough time keeping up since this is the beginning of the growing season but I was able to apply Preen Extended Control Weed Preventer in time to stop the emergence of new growth.
I can testify that it is already working as there are no new sprouts coming up, and my beds look so clean under the plantings. This product is so easy to apply – just shake directly on the ground around existing plants.
I especially love that this is a 6-month control formula so I won’t necessarily need to apply again until fall. I am so pleased with this product and will be exploring more of their line of gardening formulas in hopes they will make my gardening life simpler.
I have been using the regular Preen for many years and always had good results. When I discovered the Preen Extended Control, I was expecting to have good results and saving myself the time to not have to put the product down two times per growing season.
I put the Preen Extended Control down in March and followed application instructions as per usual. We live in MD, zone 7a. We have over 2 acres of property and several large flower gardens. My flower gardens have always been beautiful in the past, but this year the weeds are overwhelming! Attached is a photo of just one small area.
GreenView Starter Fertilizer is ideal for establishing new lawn areas. It sets the stage for exceptional performance with essential nutrients the new grass seedlings need to thrive – providing nitrogen that is both readily available and controlled release to improve growth and vitality.
Starter fertilizers have a high concentration of phosphorus as their main ingredient, and unlike established lawns – grass seeds and seedlings use the phosphorus to increase the chances of germination success.
You can count on GreenView Starter Fertilizer to provide consistent, even turf growth. Ideal for small lawns.
Spring is coming and our lawn is horrible looking! We decided to give GreenView Starter Fertilizer. After reading the packaging, it is a very easy process. You can either apply it before the seeds or after.
I decided to do it before, no reason behind it. The area thing is it does not hurt the established lawn areas that we never have issues with so spreading it with worries that it may harm the established grass spots.
I spread the fertilizer, spread my seed and gave it a little water. It does direct to not lay right before heavy rainfall. It has only been a week or so (with the decent spring weather) but we are anxiously waiting for the grass to continue to grow! It does appear the grass is growing better with using the GreenView Fertilizer then without.
I cannot wait for a full yard of grass this year!.
We are not yet in planting season here in northwest Pennsylvania (almost April and snow is still falling), but I have a bare patch in my lawn that I can’t wait to use this product on. This product can effectively treat 1,000 sq ft of new lawn with 3.
2lbs. This bag includes enough product to cover 5,000 sq ft. The granules appear to be of high quality, with the composition of 10% nitrogen, 18% phosphorus, and 10% potash, which any greenthumb knows is the ideal makeup for perfect fertilizer.
Conveniently this product can be used for established lawns, trees, and even shrubs! The packaging includes instructions for setting your rotary spreader to ideal distribution levels. I will write a review after we get spread and get some beautiful grass.
I am impressed. This GreenSmart enhanced efficiency 10-18-10 has enriched my soil with much needed nutrients. It is good for new lawns and is also good for trees and shrubs. I already see signs of new growth.
It didn’t cause any of my allergic reactions. It didn’t have a horrible smell. It was easy to apply and has an HPK of 10-18-10 plus 1. 4% combined sulfur. I have the GreenView Starter Fertilizer 16 lbs Bag.
Started using this Feb 2021. Found it on Amazon. I bought the Kit. Sprayer comesFulled and you get four bags in the box, so 5 applications. I used it all on my Bermuda Glass front and back yards. It is very hard to find this in stores and online.
I paid $14. 98 on Amazon and reordered just the Lawn Food. I am new to growing Grass and this works well I guess. Bought this House 1 1/2 years ago and the lawn was not good. I give myself 2 years to have a Golf Course Lawn and this is year one.
Looks like it helps. I also use other Natural Fritalizers as well.

Reviews From Real Customers
I recently got a bag of Scotts Turf Builder Rapid Grass-Bermudagrass for an area between my carport and my screen porch. I have had trouble growing grass in this area since we have lived here for over 25 years.
The reason we have had so much trouble is because we live in a low area below another home which has a lake. When we get a lot of rain, there overflow comes down toward our home and some of the rain water runs in between this area.
It is only affected with heavy rains but after my husband applied our Scotts Turf Builder Rapid Grass wouldn’t you know it we got a heavy rain days after and I believe this, along with a late frost, is what caused our experience with this product to fail.
We never get frost this late into the year and even this coming week we are supposed to get a couple more nights with frost. As soon as I know the threat of frost is COMPLETELY over, I will definitely be giving it another go around.
Scotts is an exceptional brand and we have used this in the past so I know how well it works. The thing I love about this product is that it contains both seed and fertilizer all in one and it is so easy to apply.
All you have to do is prep the area you are applying it to, in our case my husband had to first kill all of our weeds, then he tilled up the area and leveled it. After he applied Scotts Turf Builder Rapid Grass-Bermuda, with our Scotts Mini Spreader, he then watered it.
After a few days, we already began to see grass seedlings sprouting up but the heavy rain and frost ruined our success, but it won’t the next time we apply it in the coming weeks. I am so ready for some green Bermuda (and summer).
Last Spring, I cleared an area in my front yard and put down Scotts Tall Fescue seed. I put down some cheap fertilizer and watered twice a day for two weeks but the results were less than spectacular.
I think that was my fault because I didn’t rake the seed in and the birds in the neighborhood were feasting on the seed. The other reason is that Scotts recommends planting in the Fall – not the Spring.
I live in an area where we can get snow in mid to late May. I jumped the gun on planting, so the fact that I had any seed germinate is a testament to the quality of Scotts seed. This year, I’m planting in the Spring again but things are going to be different.
I’ll rake a small area to loosen the soil before planting and once I spread the seed/fertilizer mixture, I’ll lightly rake again. However, I won’t put all the seed down until the air has reached the recommended temperature and the chance of frost has passed.
I will try putting a small amount of the mixture in a small test area that I can water by hand and waiting 2 weeks to see if anything comes up. If not, I’ll try that again until I see good results and then I’ll take care of the remainder of the area and set up the sprinkler and timer.
My expectations are that I will be very pleased with what I see 2 weeks after the final spreading of the seed/fertilizer. I’ve been a Scotts customer for many years and haven’t been disappointed yet! Yes – I’ll be overseeding in the Fall….
Early spring we noticed our front yard had more weeds coming up than previous years. We spent several days pulling weeds from our lawn and we were left with large bare spots of just dirt. Yikes! We decided to plant grass seed and see what happened! We tilled the areas and added additional topsoil to the bare areas.
We spread the Rapid Grass seed very heavily, in hopes that at least some of it would grow. I love that this package not only included grass seed but a fertilizer as well. This combo seemed like the best way to get our grass started.
We have been watering the seeded areas twice a day. Keeping the soil moist is definitely key to the grass growing success! And keeping the birds and squirrels away from the grass seed! I was impressed that after 5 days, we were able to see tiny little sprouts coming up! That seemed too quick as most people say it takes 2-3 weeks before seeing any signs of new grass.
After 2 weeks of watering, we have most of our bare spots filled in with grass blades about 2 inches! I am super impressed with Scotts Rapid Grass Tall Fescue Mix! We will be using this on our backyard project this week as well! Looking forward to having a summer with a beautiful grass for our family to enjoy!.
Ranger Pro with 41% Glyphosate (same active ingredient as Roundup) is a complete broad spectrum post-emergent professional herbicide. Ranger Pro is the generic of Roundup Pro, and is equivalent and just as effective as the name brand, only much less expensive.
This generic roundup will kill most weeds and grasses. It is formulated as a water-soluble liquid with surfactant, therefore no additional surfactant is needed. Ranger Pro moves through the plant from the point of foliage contact to and into the root system.
It is then absorbed into the soil and breaks down naturally, and therefore will not spread through the ground and kill neighboring plants.
Purchased Roundup Promax for weed control after local retail merchants were unable to obtain it. Online ordering was easy & efficient with an excellent delivery time. We use this product every year because it continues to get the job done.
Fall fortify provides nutrients to fortify your lawn, repair summer stress, and build towards a better spring. Sunday liquid lawn nutrient formulas are made with cutting edge plant science and backed by nature.
Boost active plant growth and build soil health in just 15 minutes. Easy to use, just attach the nutrient pouch to your hose and spray, no spreader needed. Each pouch feeds up to 5,000 sq ft.
I bought a Sunday lawn care subscription last year. Followed the instructions, mowed per their process, repeated the same thing this spring. My lawn is growing and green like I’ve never seen. I still have patches I need to fix but this definitely works.
I actually had a contractor looking to do a patio in the back yard and he said “that’s a nice lawn”. After all the nonsense bags of lawn care I’ve bought, I’m sticking with these guys. At least I see this working.
If just for ease of application, you need to give Sunday a try. Let alone all the other benefits that you get. Pet friendly, results, the smell, or perhaps lack of bad smell. Excited to continue to use Sunday to see how my lawn responds.
MSMA Target 6 Plus Herbicide is for post-emergent control of crabgrass, dallisgrass, johnsongrass, nutsedge, pigweed, and chickweed. MSMA is one of the best selective post emergent herbicides but is also dangerous if improperly used.
Applying Target 6 Plus to 2+ acres to save the Bermuda grass which is being choked out by every prairie grass and weed known to human kind. First thing, knowing how much area your full tank sprayer will cover at your chosen pump pressure and mower speed is absolutely the most important factor you need to figure out before mixing anything.
I’ve used a NorthSTAR 31-gallon sprayer with the 8-foot, 5 nozzle, spray boom upgrade for the last two seasons on my 2. 5 acres. Dialing in pump pressure and sprayer tow speed to get that spray cover described as “to the point of run-off” takes a bit of practice.
Here’s what I did… Through trial and error, I was able to cover ½ an acre with 30-gallons of water at a pump pressure of 20PSI, with a tow speed of about 2 miles per hour. This speed on my John Deere LA175 was accomplished with the throttle at its slowest RPM and the hydrostatic-foot-valve all the way open or pressed all the way downward.
Pretty much at a crawls pace. I filled the spray tank up with 15 gallons of water and then mixed in 43. 5 ounces of 48% MSMA. This provided approximately 2 ounces of MSMA per 1000sqft. (0. 5 acres = 21780sqft.
x 2 ounces per 1000 = 43. 5 ounces) I also added 3oz of Green Alert Indicator and 8oz of Terra Quench Surfactant 80. I closed all the valves on the sprayer and allowed the pump’s recirculation circuit to mix it up as I filled in the remaining 15 gallons of water.
My sprayer actually holds 31 gallons, which was useful to collect the foam that produces from the extra surfactant. Another important factor for my 2+ acres which is nearly ½ of more weeds, was cutting it down to 1 inch before applying the MSMA.
I noticed when applying other chemicals such as 2-4-d they seem to be more effective when the grass is cut short. Now, comparing the results of MSMA vs 2-4-d Amine. The only weed that 2-4-d killed in my acreage was Henbit and that came back later in the season.
But now, 36 hours after applying MSMA, ALL of my many varieties of weeds and broadleaf gasses are brown. The Bermuda is still green thank you God. Again, the best approach begins with knowing how far your mower and sprayer combo will spread the entire volume of your tank size and then experiment with the various ranges of MSMA per the directions for SOD or Golf course applications.
I applied the mix in 88 to 90-degree temperatures and witness results within 12-hours. My driving range is going to look great this year ??. Hope my MSMA experience helps someone else, like all the reviews helped me.
I have a 1 1/2 acre land with Bermuda grass. At one point last year I had so much crabgrass & dallisgrass that I was overwhelmed and embarrassed to have such a horrible lawn. I called a several (neighbor recommended) companies and I almost fainted with the quotes I received.
Two hundred bucks later (much less than one tenth of the quotes I was quoted by the “pros”), I decided to use Target 6 Plus to “wage war” on the weeds. I started last August (2020) and now being August 2021 I am happy to say that I have the best looking lawn of the entire neighborhood, nearly 100% weed free.
Where weeds once thrived, new thick lush green lawn has replaced it and I seem to be watering so much less. My neighbors are still shelling out many thousands of dollars to the “pros” and still have a lot of weeds in their lawn (despite them changing different companies).
I recommend to wear eye protection and if using a backpack sprayer use a poncho over your clothing is case of spills from the sprayer. Note (1): I did use pre emergent (Prodiamine 65 WDG Barricade Herbicide in late September, 2020, and again late November.
I also applied it in March of this year as well. Note (2): The weeds in my lawn where out of control. I used 1. 75 tbsp/gallon vs the recommended 1 tbsp/gallon. I will scale back this coming year (if needed).
Did you know you can have a lush lawn even if you have low rainfall? As the first lawn care system powered by local soil and climate data, Sunday knows what lawns need to thrive where you liveand it doesnt involve wasteful watering or harmful chemicals.
With surfactant for water retention, slow-release nitrogen to reduce burn, potassium for resilience, and molasses to help soil microbes, Water Focus lawn fertilizer helps you grow green grass in a planet-friendly way.
And it couldnt be easierjust attach to any hose and spray!.
Our yard was *seriously* struggling with both dead patches of grass and weeds taking over. We decided to uproot all of it and then reseed vs. purchasing sod for cost savings, so we thought the Sunday lawn care would be a great plan forward to ensure every step was done correctly.
We couldn’t have been more wrong. After reseeding, our weeds grew back at an exponential rate. I contacted Sunday for help from one of their consultants, and their response was “some lawns will see an increase in weeds when switching to Sunday”.
I’m sorry WHAT!? I couldn’t believe it. They gave us a free bag of seed and $100 credit towards Sunday, but at this point there’s no use in using their products. We ended up having to purchase sod in the end after all.
Moral of the story – if your lawn needs serious help, contact the professionals.

And it makes DIY lawn care simpler than ever! Just shake it on and water it in. You want to water that spot 23 times a day till established. ) Then relax and check for new growth in as little as three weeks!.
Our 61 year old front yard has some bare patches here and there in our lawn. I have repaired bare patches with other brands in the past and it’s such a pain to turn the soil with a trowel, add seed, then cover the seed.
This Sunday Lawn Patch repair that I received from Influenster free in exchange for an honest review is super easy, just sprinkle onto the bare patches and water every day. I am a terrible gardner, so I didn’t water as fastidiously as all new seedlings require so some of the new growth isn’t coming in as it would if I watered daily, as required.
Nevertheless, these cute little green shoots are coming in perfectly in the areas where the sprinklers cover every other day. It’s been 22 days of bad watering and yet I still have some growth already.
The growth is bright green and looks so happy a couple of inches tall already. The product lost 1 star because the seeds come with a filler that allows you to not have to turn the soil. Unfortunately, that filler looks like dryer lint and is really light, so they float around a little in the wind.
If you are planting in spring or fall when things are a little bit naturally wet and don’t have big wind storms, this is a great product!.
I live in Wisconsin and we are currently stepping into the fall months, and after having extreme heat and little rain, my lawn went from almost dead and hay like to patchy bare spots and in dire need for some serious TLC.
I was really excited when I received Sunday Bare Repair Sun & Shade for free in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions. This product couldn’t have come at a better time because this particular grass seed is designed for cooler seasons and works in the sun and shade.
Made with premium seed, essential nutrients, and moisture-holding multch, this product comes complete with everything you need to bring your lawn back to life! The steps are so simple, just prepare your lawn by removing debris and if you have any bare spots, break up exposed soil.
Daytime temperatures should be between 60°F-85°F for best results. After your lawn prep, spread Bare Repair evenly on bare areas using roughly 1cup per 1sq ft. For areas that have thin growth in your lawn apply roughly 1lb per 15sq ft.
Then water seeded areas gently 1-2 times daily until new grass reaches a growth of about 2″ tall ( about 14 days ) soil should be kept moist. I have 2 dogs that do a number on my lawn, outside of what the elements do to it so I will admit I was skeptical at what would come from using Bare Repair, but I was pleasantly surprised! After about 2 weeks, I saw new grass growing in even with the numerous trampling from my dogs.
At 3 weeks my lawn looked more fuller, by 4-5 weeks the bare spots were completely filled in and my lawn looked plush. What made this process so great was that everything I needed to achieve a beautiful lawn came together in this 1 product! I got optimal results with little maintenance, and that definitely set this product above the rest!.
I had to go out of state when I first received my Bare Repair to try from Influenster. It says to water it twice a day and I knew I wouldn’t be able to do I had to wait until I came back. I got home about two weeks ago to unseasonably cool weather.
I was a little worried that it might be too cold for the grass to grow. Thankfully, that’s not the case. As you can see, there are a ton of new blades coming in to fill the dead spots. It seems to be coming in nice and dense, one reason we love Bermuda grass.
It also doesn’t grow tall and is tolerant of our southern heat. Our beautiful puppy had decided this area of the lawn would be his restroom. The seeds came wrapped in a cotton-type batting. I’m addition to this holding the seeds in place and holding the water in, it was also a visual deterrent for Cash.
He sniffed it once and walked away. He has since found a more appropriate place to relieve himself. There is a decent amount of product in the container. The easy pour lid made it easy to apply only the amount I needed to specific spots.
No wasted weeds from spilling or scattering. I still have about 1/4 of the bottle left that I plan to use as filler for a sparse area in the lawn. Overall, it is easy to use, convenient, cost effective, and best of all…it actually works! I look forward to seeing a beautiful lawn in just a few weeks.

I have spent a lot of time with my 1/2 acre lawn in the last month. De-thatched, aerated, re-seeded, and topped off the effort with Greenview Fairway Formula Fall Fertilizer. May I say it was worth the effort.
The Fall Fertilizer popped the original grass and accelerated the newly seeded. I have a uniform deep green colored lawn filling in fast. I only use Greenview products and my confidence has been repaid over several decades.
I love the results I gogt from this prouduct. I only use greenview product and am in the annual program. Anything extra that I need I order it through the greenview website. An awesome Lebanon seaboard Co.
site. Their seed is excellent, zero weed sed in the mixtures. The seed successis definetly needed when seeding. Love their products!!!.
Really helped with the fall and winter time keeping the st Augustine green and healthy. The reason for 4 stars is that the application rate for my spreader listed seemed to be too low to achieve results.
The prior year I did not get the same results so I’ve bumped it up one full increment this year and that was the trick. Highly recommend to get your lawn to stay green into the cool season. (Florida).
Concentrate 15-0-0 combination herbicide and liquid fertilizer for pastures, 2, 4-D based herbicide combined with 15% nitrogen. Eliminates weeds and fertilizes in one easy step. No waiting between application and grazing.
2. 5 Gallon. Pasture pro plus weed & feed. Eliminates weeds and fertilizes in one easy step, no waiting between application and grazing. Improves forage quality in pastures. Treats up to 20000 square feet.
I’m new to the whole herbicide thing even though I’ve had horses on pasture for at least 35 years and weeds just as long. I’ve been fighting buttercup now for about 5 years and losing the battle just as long.
I really didn’t want to spray chemicals on my property but this year, the time had come. I was really unsure about this but went ahead and bought this from TSC and purchased a 12 gallon tow behind sprayer.
Moved my horses to a different pasture and sprayed. It was cold (40 to 50 degrees) and rained every other day but I could see those buggers growing and I had to try. Low and behold, in about 10 days I could tell that the grass was outgrowing the weeds! In 3 weeks, most of the buttercups had died back to little deranged looking stumps.
Now some of them kind of recovered and I could see a yellow flower here and there so I sprayed them again and they were gone! I sprayed a patch when the temperature was around 80 and it did kill the grass where I sprayed that day but now I know better.
Spray before it gets too hot. My horses went back on the pasture as soon as it was dry and it did not seem to affect them at all. I used to spend all summer mowing weeds and this year I have only had to mow once as the horses keep the grass trimmed and no weeds to compete.
I absolutely recommend Gordon’s Pasture Pro. It will save you tons of work and worry. I will be using this again next spring to keep my pastures looking like lawns. TSC had the best price I could find on this product.
First time spraying 2. 65 acres of horse pasture at new farm. Used 1 gallon to 15 gallons of water. Next day, weeds,,including buttercups, pigweed and clover, all weepig over. 48 hours weeds browning and shriveling.
Grass appears unaffected. Put horses back on 48 hours afterwards, just to be safe. Decided to use on another 1. 5 acres of yard. Expecting the same outcome. Will access if weeds are killed through roots, or if necessary to spray again later this summer.
No experience here, and not sure if this kills for good, or reapplication is normal maintenance. Will buy again.
I live in the south where we get this yellow flowering weed everywhere. It takes over. We simply use the Pasture pro and no yellow flowers for the rest of the season. It allows the grass to come in great! Doesn’t kill the grass.
We usually wait a day or two before we let the horses graze. Works great! I use it in the rest of the yard as well. I have free range chickens, ducks and Guineas and this is safe for them as well!.

Second season using their 2 step subscription program ( spring/fall) My lawn was in rough shape after the 2020 drought. Applied the Spring treatment in 2021. and we had a record rainfall. so I had very green grass that grew very fast.
But I had much less crabgrass and weeds. I then applied the Fall treatment. This spring( 2022), my lawn came in and greened up really fast. with very few danidlions. Applied the Spring treatment. the few weeds I had have disappeared.
and the lawn has stayed green through some dry spells. So far, so good. the best fertilizer I’ve ever used. Although. that darn grass does grow faster! LOL.
This GreenView Fairway Formula Spring Fertilizer with Crabgrass Preventer works great. It is a good quality lawn fertilizer. It made the lawn greener and thicker. My yard needed help and I have been impressed with how much and how quickly this has helped it.
I love that it has the crabgrass preventer in it, so I don’t have to use different products. It prevents crabgrass for 120 days, and provides slow release nitrogen for extended feeding up to 12 weeks.
It was very easy to use too. I would definitely recommend it.

I purchased this after cutting the lawn, only had enough to finish half. I was impressed with the results, leaving the other half worse for wear compared to the untreated side. Since cutting the lawn again using more aftercut for the other side the difference is easy to see.
I read some complaints giving the product 1 star? More you read up the more you learn, do not cut your grass too short leaving it to burn by the elements of the sun. If no rain water at least a few times a week early morning hours or evenings.
Mow if grass is long only and Use this product. I slightly water it in come the evening. Let the grass grow for two weeks whilst following instruction. My lawn was very problematic early spring with fallen leaves leaving patches.
Raking damage etc. Now using Aftercut and watering and temperature rising here it is. Never cut your grass on a low setting. If you can not adjust then invest in a mower that does!.
The amount of people who have seen my lawn and proceeded to rush out and buy this product themselves… I recommend it to everyone when gardening comes up. I have a private lawn which was newly turfed 3 years ago, this product made it like a magic carpet.
The real test was when I started applying it to the communal lawn which hadn’t received any kind of care in years – it was patchy, yellow and infested with weeds. This product revived the lawn to almost the same standard as my new turf.
I use it every 2 weeks In the summer and water it in, to achieve super thick and green results.
Over 2 years of using this I turned a moss, clover and weed infested patch of basic scrubland into a lawn that had our neighbours asking how I’d done it. This was the answer. It’s the only product I use now.
Three application per year rake off the dead weeds and when the grass is green and lush again don’t cut too short. On lawns that just need a refresh it’s one treatment every 6 months and the results are very quick indeed.
