Very effective at killing weeds. Just be patient and give it time to work through the roots before pulling up the withering weeds.
I used this spray a few week ago after having a serious weeds problem and nothing helping the cause. 10 days after using it all the weeds have died and were very easy to remove. I can only pray now that there isn't too much regrowth but from similar reviews its not too much hassle. I'd definitely purchase this again if needed.
I have used roundu for a few years now and it certainly does what it says on the tin.....................you just have to be a little bit patient with round up as the results are not instant
Concrete slabs cover a lot of the area in my garden, and weeds could be a constant problem. Not anymore. This weedkiller is the best that I have ever used. I have and will buy it again when needed.
Bought it to get rid of weeds and that horrible ivy in my garden, considering that it actually should be sprayed when are growing i can see small results already
