Ortho GroundClear Vegetation Killer Concentrate is specially formulated to help get rid of unwanted weeds and grasses on desired areas. This liquid concentrate works two ways: by killing vegetation down to the root, and by preventing new growth for at least one year. It features a fast-acting formula which guarantees an effective and long-lasting result. It is very easy to apply using a tank sprayer or a sprinkling can and will help keep weeds away on driveways, sidewalks, gravel paths, patios, and along fences.
Can I re-plant in an area where Ortho GroundClear Vegetation Killer Concentrate has been applied if I put with new soil over top of the sprayed area?
I sprayed GroundClear on area that I intended to plant flowers and shrubs in after weeds and grass killed. Can I still plant with new soil over top of the sprayed area?
Ortho GroundClear Vegetation Killer Concentrate can prevent anything growing in the area for up to 1 year. You will need to wait that time to plant in the treated area or completely remove the treated soil and replace with new to plant sooner
I want to use Ortho GroundClear Vegetation Killer Concentrate in an area where there are other shrubs. How far away should I stay from them?
All bare ground/vegetation management products like Ortho GroundClear Vegetation Killer Concentrate are recommended to be applied outside the dripline of desirable trees and plants to prevent their feeding roots from absorbing the product. Inside the dripline is where these roots are closest to the soil and could absorb any such product so we would not recommend using any in the area within any desired plant drip lines. Additionally, be sure to protect any desired plants/grasses from overspray.
If I spray Ortho GroundClear Vegetation Killer Concentrate near but not on a plant will the plant be ok?
Ortho GroundClear Vegetation Killer contains two active ingredients, glyphosate for post-emergent plant control and imazapyr for long-term pre-emergent treatment. This product will affect any plants that you spray with it, but it can also kill plants if their roots contact treated soil. Since this product is designed to last in the soil for many months, you should not spray it where there would be any contact or runoff with the root systems of desirable plants.
