I had a real weed problem in the front yard and bed. The home owners assn threatened bloody murder if I did not take care of it. I searched the web and found a weed killer that puts the commercial stuff to shame and it is a lot safer on the environment. I have not had to weed in several months. It is probably time for a second application this year.
