How to Prevent Weeds with Roundup® Dual Action Products

Tips on how to say goodbye to weeds for up to 4 months.

Looking to control and prevent weeds in both your landscapes and hardscapes? Reach for Roundup® Dual Action Weed & Grass Killer Plus 4 Month Preventer. Like the name suggests, Roundup® Dual Action Products provide two forms of control: they kill existing weeds and grasses and prevent new weeds from growing for up to 4 months. We know, it's a weed-prevention dream come true.

How to Properly Prevent Weeds

Controlling existing weeds is pretty straightforward - you aim at the weed you want to treat, and spray. When it comes to prevention, however, there are a few important tips you have to remember in order to have a success story:

  • To successfully prevent weed growth, you must spray existing weeds and all weed-prone areas. Don't shrug off a section of your landscape just because weeds aren't there at the time of application; if they have been there before, they will probably come back…so spray!
  • You want to make sure you are using a product that is for residual weed control, like Roundup® Dual Action Products. That means it continues to prevent weeds after your initial application. If the label doesn't mention prevention, it will not prevent.
  • Do not apply too close to scheduled rain showers! Roundup® Dual Action Products are rainproof in as fast as 30 minutes. Rain or watering 30 minutes after application will NOT wash away effectiveness.

It’s Go Time

Now that you know how to prevent weeds from growing back, it’s time to treat those areas. To focus the spray where you need it most, we recommend Roundup® Dual Action Weed & Grass Killer Plus 4 Month Preventer with Sure Shot® Wand. The protective shield of the Sure Shot® Wand allows you to use Roundup® Dual Action Products to kill unwanted weeds right down to the root while comfortably guarding the desirable plants. The shield keeps the spray contained so wind won't carry it to desirable plants. The extra long wand lets you treat weeds with ease.
