What is the best way to apply Pramitol 25E to a gravel covered driveway? Would it be faster to use a hose-end sprayer?

I have a gravel driveway that is approximately 5,000 sq. ft. I have to spray Roundup on it about every 3-weeks as weeds and grass keep coming up. If I use a 2-gallon hose sprayer it would take hours to cover all the bare gravel, grass and weeds. Is there a quicker way to apply it (e.g. - Hose end sprayer, Sprinkling Can, Etc.)? Thanks!

Answer:

You could potentially use a hose-end sprayer to apply Pramitol 25E if you can correctly calibrate your sprayer and avoid any potential contact or runoff to any desirable plants. For susceptible perennial grasses, you would use 12 - 18 oz per 1,000 square feet in sufficient water. For hard-to-kill perennial weeds and grasses, you would use 22 - 29.4 oz. per 1,000 sq ft. It is most important to use the correct amount of herbicide for the area you are treating and then using sufficient water or rainfall to irrigate it into the soil than it is to use a specific amount per gallon of water.  Please refer to the product label for complete application instructions.  Another option would be a backpack sprayer.
