gasoline weed killer
Hi guys - crazy question here:
I have a massive square foot area of weeds that need to be killed. Roundup, even when bought by the dry packet at the commerical landscapers store and mixed by oneself is prohibitively expensive for me, especially because I have to buy bottled water to mix it (it does not mix with my ultra hard and alkaline well water).
Anyway, I tried using gasoline in my sprayer and it worked great. The nice thing about gasoiline is that it only takes a little on the leaves to kill the plant. I don't want to have to use a lot and thereby poison the soil (actually its mulch) so using the sprayer works great.
Unfortunately the gasoline "melts" the plastic components of my sprayer, gums it up and it quickly stopped working.
So: does anyone else know of any way to dispense gasoline as a weed killer? Using a watering can would probably dump too much on the plant and get into the soil, which I would rather not do.
Also: I do not wish to be lectured by anyone about the fire danger (that's obvious) or how my methods are not organic (that's also obvious) but if anyone does have experience doing this, I would be interested in hearing about "your mileage"
