The Gordons Trimec Classic Broadleaf Herbicide is an effective professional post-emergence herbicide for broadleaf weed control. It has a low odor formulation that helps in making this herbicide as low profile as possible. With its proven performance on the field, the Trimec Classic is the preferred option in controlling broadleaf weeds in turf such as dandelion, plantain and others without damaging or harming other turf grass species. This product is also effective and great to use for hard to kill weeds, with no repeat application required. The Trimec Classic Broadleaf Herbicide's active ingredients have a synergistic action which makes it an economical product to use and treat more acres better than any other 3 way product.
Maximum control of weeds in cool-season and warm-season turf-grasses will be obtained from spring or early fall applications when weeds are actively growing. Do Not use on carpetgrass, dichondra, nor lawns or turf where desirable clovers are present.
Do Not broadcast apply when air temperatures exceed 85 degrees F. Some injury may be expected with spot treatments when air temperatures exceed 85 degrees F. Seed can be sown 3 to 4 weeks after application.
Do Not use on or near desirable plants, including contact of spray on exposed root systems or shoots within the drip line of desirable trees and shrubs, since injury may result.
I used 3.5 oz per gallon in a 2 gallon pump sprayer. It rained within 24 hours of application and I used no surfactant. To my surprise most of the weeds were dead and gone within 2 weeks. There were a couple weeds along the fenceline that I may have missed or from the rain. All in all I'm very pleased and will use again. Also, price is half as much as my local nursery!
I'm a homeowner with no experience in pesticides. Grasses and clover popped up in the mulched yard after recent rain in SoCal. My first treatment was with RoundUp and it was ineffective. My landscaper buddy recommended this product to kill the clover....and it worked. Within 12 hours the clover was starting to wilt and by 48 hours it was dead. Cons: The dosage instructions. I'm a city boy that moved out of the city to the burbs. The directions call for ounces per sprayed acreage, something I wasn't familiar with. Perhaps they could say "2 ounces per gallon" is effective or something along those lines. My application was very potent and effective, but next time I'll go lighter on the herbicide. This stuff isn't good for the ground water and eventually runs into rivers and oceans.
Thank you for your comments! We are so glad to hear you have had success with the Gordon's Trimec for your clover problem. Regarding the usage rate instructions, most professional herbicides will have directions to use an amount of concentrate per area, rather than an amount per gallon. This is because equipment output can vary greatly, and we want to think of water as being a carrier of our active ingredient: it is much more important to use the correct amount of concentrate for the treatment area, and you just need to use sufficient water to cover that area. If you are using new equipment, then it can be helpful to mark off a small area to calibrate your equipment using water only before applying the herbicide. You can also always call us for assistance at 866-581-7378. Thank you for your feedback and your business!
Was told about trimec Classic by a friend's dad. He showed me his son's treated lawn and I was amazed! Creeping Charlie and many other broad leafs took it on the chin in this matchup! My results were equally as good so far. I may throw a booster application on in the spring time to completely win the war!!
I have been fighting the Creeping Charlie for years with products from the big Home stores, without success. Gordons Trimec Classic wiped out 95 percent of weeds with one application this spring. I was so impressed, I had to leave this review.
How long should I wait after using Gordons Trimec Classic Broadleaf Herbicide before allowing my dogs back on the treated area?
When using Gordons Trimex Classic Broadleaf Herbicide you would need to wait until the product dries completely before letting any pets back into the area, Please let us know if we can be of any more assistance.
1. Mark an area of 1,000 square feet (i.e. 20 by 50 feet, or 25 by 40 feet).
2. Place the sprayer on a level surface and add water noting the final level of water in thespray tank.
3. Spray the marked area with a sufficient volume of water to provide uniform coverage. Refill the sprayer to the same level as before measuring the amount of water added. The measured water added to the sprayer is the volume needed to cover 1,000 square feet.
4. Determine the application rate (fl oz/1000 sq ft) for the product from the “General Application” section of the label.
5. To each volume of water used, as measured in step 3, add the amount of product determined in step 4.
If the sprayer used 2 gallons of water to cover 1,000 square feet and the desired application rate of product 1.5 fluid oz/1,000 square feet, then you would add 1.5 fluid ounces to every 2 gallons of water to be used.
