  • Round-Up. You can spray close to your "good" plants and it doesn't hurt them. I have no idea how the chemical knows the difference.

  • Round-Up has done the best job for me. It kills EVERYTHING that I spray it on!! I first bought a cheap weed killer from wal-mart but I swear it made the weeds grow better!!

  • and if you mean Gasoline... I would stay away from using that. It is really bad for the ground water system and if you or any of your neighbors have wells that tap into that ground water system, the gas can ruin their well. My sister had that happen to her well water when her gas tank leaked about a gallon out of her car. Every time you turned on the faucet you could smell the gasoline. Luckily, city-water had just become available in her area so they paid to get city water.

  • roundup is really toxic. try straight vinegar (you may be able to find industrial strength vinegar at a hardware store)
