Killing weeds and other unwanted vegetation on a lawn can sometimes be quite a hassle. Using Tractor Supply's in-store brand of concentrated weed killer, GroundWork, can get rid of those unsightly weeds at a very competitive price, if not less expensive. Knowing how to mix the concentrated weed killer is necessary to maximize the product's effectiveness and to ensure there is no damage to the lawn or other unintended areas.
Things You'll Need
- Tablespoon or measuring cup that shows ounces
- Hose-end sprayer or pressurized spray bottle
- Rubber gloves
- Safety goggles
Wear gloves and goggles when working with GroundWork, as the product is an eye and skin irritant. Follow the label's warnings, which also suggest wearing a long sleeve shirt, long pants, socks and shoes when working with this product.
Pour 1 fluid oz., or 2 tbsp., of GroundWork concentrate into a sprayer or container for every 1 gallon of water.
Agitate the water and GroundWork mixture with a gentle circular swinging motion, being careful not to spill or splash the mixture.
Close the spray container and ensure that it is tightly sealed.
Spray the mixture on the targeted areas as directed by the label instructions.
