Joe, I don't think you can compare agri concentrate to round up ready to use because you have to dilute the agri. Look at the round up concentrate. It has 50 percent active ingredients for the super round up

That's why I go to my farming friends. Tell them what I want to do and they get me the good stuff.

Round-Up is not for impatient people. It requires time to kill the roots. For quick results on grass paint/spray it with paint thinner, diesel fuel or something on that order.

That old man told me " sometimes good things take a little longer "

Harbor Freight sells a 4 gallon backpack sprayer for $20. Mix up roundup from concentrate you can buy at nurseries or even possibly home depot, and walk the perimeter while spraying. Very easy and effective.

Regular table salt works, too, if it is contained.
I like your idea of a black rubber/plastic; you could put the rocks on top. ( Kids do like to throw them while in the pool) Even Roundup has weeds that are now resistant. Some other herbicides affect surrounding trees. Your neighbor might mind that. A ground cover that overwhelms weeds also might work.

Nothing grows in modern kitty litter. Sounds ridiculous but works. Depends if it is narrow enough to not encourage cats.

Plastic lawn edging will prevent whatever you put down from going into your neighbor's grass & your pool.. Comes in at least 25' strips. Good luck!

Cut down down you want on what I suggested but anyplace I've used it the weeds and grass are gone for almost 12 months.

Re: How to Keep Grass DEAD under Chainlink Fence! Tips needed!


I have found the best deal on concentrated Roundup at Costco. I've seen it at Sam's Club too. Avaialability is sesonal, about February through early summer in my market. I call it "concentrated" generically since Roundup has at least three variants that run about a 50% concentration. The one's I'm familiar with are Roundup Pro, Concentrate, and Superconcentrate. They are all very potent. Not sure Pro is available to unlicensed applicators everywhere (Monsanto makes it sound like a big deal on their website). I don't know the exact differences, but I know that Pro and Superconcentrate annihilate their targets if mixed correctly.

The last one I bought was one gallon of Superconcentrate. I have had two or two and a half gallons of Pro in the past, and it's my first choice when I can find it. Here in Las Vegas I get a huge mix of weeds, some very tough like Russian Thistle. I mix it at 2 oz per gallon and it knocks everything out. Like others have said, it's not instant. About two weeks for stuff to look really dry and dead/ If I were targeting grass only, I want to say the recommended mix is 1 oz per gallon. At those ratios, a large container of Roundup lasts a long time. I once ran they math on the value of the Pro. It was pennies on the dollar compared to buying the premix, that is if the mild mix suited you. I just Googled the price of Pro, since I could not remember. $78 with free shipping on Amazon - a great price, 56% off retail according to the ad. I think it was at least $110 or $120 at Costco a few years ago, so I'd snatch up the Amazon deal in a heartbeat.
