Using Roundup® Weed & Grass Killer Products Properly
How Do I Apply Roundup® Weed & Grass Killer Products?

STOPPING WEEDS IS SIMPLE: 3 THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND
Only kill what you want gone
Make sure the plants you’re about to treat are the ones you don’t want. Roundup® Weed & Grass Killer products are extremely effective and will stop most actively growing plants dead in their tracks.
Treat the right spots
When using most of our products, be sure to treat the leaves of the plants, not the soil. This lets the product work its way down to the roots of the plant and stop it at the source. If you’re using a product that prevents new weeds from growing, treat the entire area. Remember — glyphosate, the primary active ingredient* in our products, won’t move through the soil to plants you want to keep.
After using Roundup® Weed & Grass Killer products, store them in a dry area that’s not too hot and not too cold, but just right.
WAIT FOR GOOD WEATHER (FOR BEST RESULTS)
When you apply Roundup® Weed & Grass Killer products is important. Waiting for a rain-free, calm day is key. This decreases the chance of rain washing away the product, or wind drifting it onto plants you love. Just remember to steer clear until the treated weeds are dry, so you don’t track the product onto plants you want to keep.
