Mixing Weed Spray
#61

Today was my first day using "Jolt"..i splashed out and bought a proper surfectant too..

it seemed to work very well...and I was amazed that for my backpack 18ltr sprayer...i only needed 3ml !!

looking forward to seeing some good results

 

this is the surfectant i used...should last a lifetime

that's the stuff I use. Works great.

Ok...its been nearly 3 weeks now since I first used Jolt on customers lawns .. I went around to a few of them today.. 

No weeds at all...No clover at all..  I was very impressed...

 

Now... I'm pretty sure that when I was using Bin-die and had limited success i sprayed to early in the season.. So I'm not sure if my great success with "jolt" is also contributed to being used when weeds are actively growing.  But anyway, Jolt with a proper surfectant has worked fantastic

 

Cheers

Ok...just an update on my experiences using "jolt" (spearhead) ...  

Pro tip...dont mix it up too strong !!

Its been nearly 5 weeks now since I sprayed it around customers and my own lawn...and it has left yellow marks.. this is on buffalo

 

I was mixing up 270ml per 18lts..    (15 mls per ltr)  and thats too heavy !    I actually used 300ml...LMAO

when lawn recover...I will be trialing it at 10 mls per ltr.. 

 

nothing like trial and error..  Shezzz

 

Stay tuned
