By May, the weeds were so high and thick in my white gravel driveway that I had to do something other than just mow over them. Pulling weeds out of a 70 foot gravel driveway is just too much of a chore, and the weeds keep growing back anyway. But as I was driving home from work one day, I noticed a gravel driveway very similar to mine that was nearly weed-free. And the owner was outside using one of those Roundup pump weed sprayers on his driveway. Silly me, I had never even thought to try that.
I went to Walmart and purchased Roundup Extended Control Weed & Grass Killer, the exact same brand that I saw that owner using on his own gravel driveway. Roundup Extended Control Weed & Grass Killerwill cover about 400 square feet with an odorless, rain-resistant residual chemical that will continue to kill weeds for up to four months from the first application. The pump sprayer was easy to use, and it took me about an hour to spray down my driveway and sidewalk areas. I like that I can purchase an inexpensive refill for the pump sprayer for next spring's application because I plan to use Roundup Extended Control Weed & Grass Killeragain. This product killed the crabgrass in my driveway entirely, killed about 90% of the dandelions and clover on the first application, and it turned the grass brown wherever it touched the edges of my lawn.
After two months of rain and sun in the rain forest climate that Erie is known for, my white gravel driveway could use a touch-up reapplication of Roundup Extended Control Weed & Grass Killerto kill a few fresh weeds that have popped up since May. But I haven't had to mow my driveway in two months. I'm very pleased with the way this product has performed, and I highly recommend using Roundup Extended Control Weed & Grass Killer.
