I live in New Jersey near the coast. I had out of control spurge, oxalis, nutsedge and crab grass. My first application was with a hose sprayer because it was hard to find actual application instructions. Instructions weren't with the gallon size I purchased. I saw only slight results. I then did a hand held sprayer and mixed the proper ratio from the instructions I found on the website. This seemed to brown some leaves but didn't knock the weeds out. Some weren't affected at all. I then doubled the concentration and tried spot spraying. I sprayed directly on neighbors out of control weeds climbing then fence and the stronger mix seemed to eventually kill those. But only after multiple direct sprays. However this product drips right off oxalis so it doesn't affect it at all. And in the higher concentration I found it actually killed my turf grass never to come back. It turned black and stayed black. There was no greening benefit at all. I did treat in the summer though, maybe fall or spring would be better. For me it only works in strong concentrations directly applied to weeds over multiple applications in a mulch bed. For the price and what it actually does - I don't think it is worth it. Glad it is natural and non toxic but I found it mildly affective. The video seems impressive but there should be a better video tutorial and real life lawn scenarios to demonstrate the product.
I've been fighting lesser celandine (AKA Ficaria verna, Ranunculus ficaria) in my yard and garden for some years now. This plant is a homeowner's nightmare-- it looks very pretty at first but it takes over everywhere, it's nearly impossible to dig out, and extremely hard to kill even with glyphosate. But this product works! You have to follow the directions and apply it at a heavy rate on this particular weed, but it seems to be doing the trick. Maybe I can get my lawn back!!
We’ve been trying to rehab a lawn that was neglected for years by the prior owners, and after buying a smaller bottle of an iron-based selective herbicide here and there for a few years, I finally decided to get a 3gal sprayer and a 2.5gal container of Fiesta, and soaked our entire front yard once at the beginning of May and again at the beginning of June last year. That, along with applications of natural fertilizer, overseeding the bare patches, and mowing high, has taken our lawn from one of the worst to one of the nicest in our neighborhood. I just re-treated the strip of lawn on our easement because it didn’t have much grass to start with and had pretty heavy weed pressure. The only thing this doesn’t work well on in our yard is violets, I’m not willing to use more toxic options so I’m just going to make sure that the grass can out-compete them!
We have horses and dogs. Trying to find a safe herbicide especially for horses is difficult. The Fiesta at a 7.5 oz/gal rate did a great job of killing the poisonous Spurge and buttercups out of the horse pastures. Plants showed some withering the next day (60degF). It took 2 weeks after application to get the plants to completely wither and die. Grass actually got greener in areas that the Fiesta was sprayed. Probably due to extra iron for the grass. Make sure to soak plants you are trying to kill.
I can’t give this product 5 stars because it just isn’t concentrated enough. 10oz per gallon of water is a lot of product to use when spot spraying… especially when you consider these chemicals go at 1oz per gallon usually. For the price, I feel it should go further and be more effective. If these organic companies want to make some real headway, they will need to make this stuff a bit cheaper and more concentrated.
