Sahara DG herbicide is a type of herbicide that kills all living plants. Any kind of plant will die if it comes into contact with Sahara DG herbicide. The weed killer is typically used in applications such as railways, road building, cement laying, paving, farmyards and fence rows. The weed killer eliminates all plants to bare ground, and is used where bare ground is desired. Applying the herbicide is simple, and any adult can apply it with little trouble.
Things You'll Need
- Work gloves
- Safety goggles
- Sahara DG herbicide (granules or spray)
- Spray container or push fertilization cart
- Rocks, pavers, cement or wood to place over the soil
Move any objects from the area where you want to spray or lay the Sahara herbicide. This includes furniture, toys, vehicles and any lawn decorations. Remove all plants from the area that you do not want killed.
Consider removing any grass or plants that are in the soil to another location. Move them with a shovel or trowel to another part of your yard or garden.
Remove any rocks or large weeds from the area. The soil should be rock-, stick-, leaf- and weed-free. Rake the area to level the soil and prepare for the Sahara application.
Place the Sahara herbicide into the appropriate dispenser. If you are using granules, place the herbicide into the push fertilizer cart. If you are using the spray, place the spray into the spray bottle or container.
Lay or spray the herbicide carefully over the area where you want to kill the plants. Try not to spray or place the weed killer in any area that you do not want dead. Wherever the herbicide is laid, the plants will die.
Come back to the same area two to three days later. The plants should now be dead. If some remain, apply another application of the weed killer. Wait two more days and return again.
Remove the dead weeds and grass from the area with a shovel. Cover the dirt with sand, rocks, cement, mulch or whatever material you want to place in that area. Weeds will come back after a few weeks if you do not cover the area.
