An easy, time saving way to do Roundup on just your weeds and not your plants!

Take a half gallon plastic milk jug (empty obviously) and cut out the bottom, so you have a handle, the open spout, and a large opening at the bottom.

Then take this plastic 'funnel' around to various weeds when you need to spray a herbicide such as Roundup, put the jug over the weed, and spray through the hole in the top. It will contain the spray and drift so that it goes on JUST your weeds, not on your plants; plus it is really quick and easy to use.

I have a lot of weeds that spread via rhizome (underground) and Roundup is the only thing that even remotely affects them. Pulling, hoeing, cultvating - they all just make the weeds angry! So I've gotten good at spraying amongst the plants.

Overwhelmed? There's a lot to see here. Try starting at our homepage.
