Default Weed and brush killer

Property next to me is owned by a large company and they have taken the cattle off of it, now the weeds, brush, vines are encroaching on my property.
What can I use to keep this killed back using store bought items? I have a 30 gallon sprayer to use. I want a 10í buffer zone to keep the crap away.

Glysophate, also can use a mix of 1 gallon vinegar, 2 cups epsom salt and some dawn dish soap. Works faster than round up but will also cost more

I have decent success with RM43 but forget about it lasting a year, I apply 3-4 times per year.

For me 2oz Gly + 2oz Remedy per gallon of water lasts just as long as the RM43 and works better on woody plants.

Depends on what you have growing there. Iím tagged for input since I have a fence line I need under control.

Not to steal your thread, but I a little of everything. Itís a good 10ft on each side of the fence as well.

Be careful spraying anything on property that does not belong to you

Big and Tuff (probably called something else now) from TSC will kill everything down to the dirt

I don't know where you heard that.I've bought at least 100 gallons of Big & TUff.Sprayed the same 7 acres.Covered in weak tree's/a few fruits..It will kill the grassy weeds and "grass".It's a non selective herbicide..You can pour it straight onto a cedar tree on a 100 degree day and it won't hurt it.Barely effects broad leaf weeds..I've got a garage full of it.

I use Makaze. I get it at the feed store where we get our feed. It works well for me. Had a bunch of briars and poison oak. It killed it down to the dirt. My friend that builds fences for a living turned me on to it.

You canít legally spray your neighbors side of the fence. If you did and they didnít like it, it could get really expensive for you.

Get whatever they use on the rail road.

I have given up on trying to spray my back fence line. I just take a a weed burner to it after a rain. Same amount of work and results you can see instantly.

Thanks for all the replies. I have RM43 and Roundup, since I have yaupons, hackberry and tallow trees, I’m going to look for Remedy. I tried to get the company to clean the fence line when they removed 2 trees off my barn, told me to do what I wanted so spraying won’t be a issue.

I have had this 2.5gal jug for several years

Mixed it like the label says, spray on fence rows and grass, weeds etc is D E A D!

That is all I know
Would take a pic of the label but it fell off and is long lost
I could be mistaken about the name though

I bet it was the same stuff if you bought it at TSC.When you said "kill it to the dirt"..
I've done it and it's still bare ground.Du pont makes it and the forestry service uses it for landing strips in the mountains for fighting forest fires.20 years dead.
You can put as much non selective herbicide on the ground as you want.Mother Nature will show up eventually and control erosion.
Velpar L is a killer.Carried into the ground by rainwater..Kills everything for 20/30 years.Nothing grows there again.

Arsenal, you can buy it at the feed store. I think it kills all the woody, broadleaf stuff and doesn’t bother the pines. 1/2 ounce per gallon. When I want to kill it all, I mix with Eraser.

Sprayed a mixture of Roundup and Brushtox, similar to Remedy, hope it does the job!

Found Eraser Max at my feed store, the owner showed me a patch he had sprayed 1/2 with Eraser and the other 1/2 with Eraser Max. The results were dramatic, the Max part was dead to the ground, shrubs and all. A quart goes in 4 gallons and it’s good for a 1000 sq. Ft., at $25/qt. it’s going to be a little pricey. I’ve got 1500’ of fence to clear so it’s going to take a while.

I would add 2oz of Remedy per gallon of water and spray the leaves of the bushes. Should kill them. I always add alittle surfactant or dawn dish soap so it sticks to the waxing side of the leaves.

I 2nd this for mesquites. I add a little diesel so it sticks better. I put about a gallon of diesel to my 16 gallon sprayer.

Don't spray it yet if you're not spraying the stems. It is still too early. If you are spraying the stems and young smooth bark mesquite, 15% Remedy to 85% diesel.

If you are going to spray the leaves, use Remedy and water. The diesel will burn the leaves off too fast before it gets down to the root. Soil temperature has to be right, 75 degrees at 12" deep, leaves have to be dark green not the light pea green and the flowers need to be yellow and the beans need to be fully developed. Problem with first year re-growth mesquite is that it may not have enough leaf area to take it in and kill the root. Usually recommend 2 years of growth before leaf spray but a lot of people don't like that look.

2.5 oz of Sendero OR 1.25 oz of Remedy and Reclaim each to 2 gallon sprayer for leaf spray.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT....DON'T SHRED MESQUITES, IT MAKES THE JOB A LOT HARDER
