Pros: Excellent way to get rid of weeds in unwanted areas
Cons: use rubber gloves when using.
As of March 30th 2011, I still stand behind this product and use it on all my commercial homes. This Triox Vegatation Killer will get the job done right the first time.
I've been using Ortho Ground Clear Triox Total Vegetation Killer for the last 10 years now. At first it was just called Triox, next it was given this name. This year they took Triox completely off the label. This product is a proven must for every landscaper, gardener or homeowner.
Ground Clear does have many uses around your home not just in your garden or flower beds. If I have two lawn customers that have wired fencing on both sides of the grounds fenced in on their property, I get permission to spray the fence line so I don't have to use a spool of trimmer line doing both fences.
On my city properties I use Ground Clear on cracks in the driveway or sidewalks to prevent and weeds or grass to come through. Even at the edge of the driveway where they exit to go out on the street I spray so it gives the home a clean fresh appearance. I also spray it on street curbs, drains and even under gutter spouts where it is very hard to trim along.
When a customer comes to me about wanting a new flowerbed design, I go over their final thoughts three or more times. I mark out the flowerbed with landscaper paint, then I spray the whole area of the flowerbed with this product. It takes 24 hours to slightly kill the top, I take a sprinkler hose and moisten the work area just so the product goes into the ground and starts killing the roots as well. In 3 days I'm able to start tilling up the ground.
When I reach the depth that I'm tilling for I spray it completely one more time to finalize this end of the project. The reason I do it like this is when I take most of the ground away it gets put to use on other projects.
This Ground Clear is very good at your country property corners where a lot of tall weeds and other plants that are pain to the eye can be killed for a year. I actually use this on my property borders twice a year so I never have to worry about trimming out their at all.

Do not spray this product on any body of water. Do not spray near drainage vents that lead to like the Chesapeake Bay. Don't want to get my man Gamblin Man Larry mad at me.
Do not let children use this product, if fact if you can find a place to put locked up.
To mix this Ground Clear use one quart of this product to a gallon of water. Wash every part of your body that comes in contact with this product at the end......If ya only take a bath once a week.......let it be this day..........lol.
I recommend this product to people who know how and can read directions well. Rubber gloves and a air mask for those who do not want to take any risks, or are fair skin.
Ground Clear is a great product to use, if used correctly.Any questions please go to their website.
