Easy to use.
Definitely pays to do a little research to get the best product .

I am a big fan of Glyphosate as a weedkiller. As it works by preventing the plant from building an essential amino acid (which is needed to produce the plant's own proteins) it is very effective on rapidly growing plants but, as animals get this amino acid from their diet and do not need to synthesise it, Glyphosate has potentially no harmful effects on animals. Okay, if you drink it or wash your face in it then you are in for trouble but the same can be said for half the liquids in most homes. A quick internet search shows that the the various world health organisations do not regard Glyphosate as a risk to human health. I will avoid the debate about whether using any herbicide is a problem because of environmental disruption because almost any human activity has some effect somewhere.
If you cannot be bothered to buy yourself a sprayer and then simply measure out a small amount of glyphosate, dilute it with waster and spray it on your weeds then go in to your local garden centre and pay an extortionate amount of money for a 'ready to use option (You will then throw away the sprayer and add to global pollution). If, like me, you: (a). Can mix water with glyphosate and (b). You like to save money then buy this and you will have enough herbicide to last many years. It is very concentrated.
Practical tips: Don't expect overnight results, you are killing the plant by depriving it of protein and, depending on how much protein the plant already has in its tissues, it will take some time to work.
It has to be absorbed so waxy leaved plants like ivy may need repeat spraying but wait for a few weeks in between..
If you have creeping weeds, like bindweed, intermingled with your precious plants try carefully untwining them, folding them in a plastic bag, and then spraying so the glyphosate is contained in the bag.
Don't spray even if it is just breezy! You will kill off surrounding plants. Be patient and wait for a still day day!
Buy a small hand sprayer and get up close and personal to your the weeds that really annoy you.

This is obviously aimed at commercial concerns, hence the quantity guidelines in litres per hectare. However, when I worked out that I need a maximum of 5ml per 10 litres, the weeds are all gone.

Used on my driveway to get rid of moss & weeds between small concrete paving blocks; worked really well. Will need doing again after 6 months though but that is to be expected.

Seems to have kept the weeds at bay much longer than any other product. My dad is fair chuffed with it! :-)

Very good weed killer. Ive used this multiple times. Most recently it was to supress and kill 20 years growth of ivy. I was surprised of the speed it killed the ivy off. As it states, it will kill ANY type of plant material, so do be careful. . Would recommend

I used this on some Brambles at the recommended rate of 20ml / litre (2%) and after about 3 weeks they look well on the way to being dead. The dose for annual weeds is 10ml / litre (1%) so at 50-100 treatments per bottle it works out great value for money.

Used to clear a fairly large patch in the garden of bind weed, ivy and brambles. Easy to dilute and use, it can take up to a week before you start to see the results, so be patient - things will start to go brown and die, even on the things you didn't want to kill - I have a nice brown patch on my lawn!

No fuss. Used a capful for a 5ltr water spray and it started to work within 48 hrs. Leaves and brambles are noticeably deteriorating. Only fault is in getting through the blurb instructions...not easy to follow unless you're an agricultural engineer or horticulturalist . I followed the advice on reviews that worked instead. Very happy with purchase.
