Okay, sometimes I use it to spot spray weeds growing in mulched beds or other non-turf areas, but I never use it on my lawn - this is why:


You can drive around this time of year a pick these yards out. I think people hear it's safe to use glyphosate on their dormant Bermuda, but don't actually take the time to make sure it's completely dormant. Sure, that 3" Bermuda looked nice and dormant from the driveway, but now the lawn is going to look like trash for a couple months. :roll:

I simply don't use it - it's not worth the risk. When we have a mild winter here, there are areas of my lawn that never go completely dormant - so please:

Oh WOW! Although I guess this photo could be used to demonstrate how he wouldn't have missed those strips had he applied it at half rate in two perpendicular passes. :lol:
