So it’s that time of year when we’re trying to get the backyard in order so we can spend more time having family barbecues, enjoying a margarita on the back patio, and playing games in the yard.
My back patio is a little bare these days and in desperate need of some TLC. First item on my list? Get all of the weeds out of our flower beds.
This year I turned to AMDRO PowerFlex Pest & Weed System products. They have 4 different products to choose from:
- Weed & Grass Killer Concentrate
- Lawn Weed Killer Concentrate
- Yard & Perimeter Outdoor Insect Killer Concentrate
- Home Pest Indoor Killer Concentrate
Of course the first treatment I opted for was the Weed and Grass Killer.
The all-in-one system simplifies indoor and outdoor pest and weed control by helping consumers eliminate unwanted pests in three easy steps: 1. Fill the reusable one gallon tank with clean water. 2. Twist in one of four patent-pending cartridges. 3. Spray to treat target pests; quickly switch between projects by removing the cartridge, flushing the applicator for ten seconds with water from the tank and twisting in a new cartridge. If you’re worried about killing your nearby bushes and grass, just make sure you spray close to the root of the areas you want to eliminate. So, what do I love most about the AMDRO product line? The battery powered sprayer. All four cartridges fit inside the nifty sprayer so you can eliminate a wide range of pests – from ants and cockroaches to dandelion and many other hard-to-control weeds. AMDRO PowerFlex products range from $11.99 to $14.99 and are available at The Home Depot, Walmart and select regional retailers.

Just don’t wait to long to deal with them…

I use a weed barrier and mulch to keep the weeds away.
kelly Keitzer says
We used weed barrier but it didn’t work
Well, live in an apartment that does weed maintenance. And coffee grounds and vinegar for the bugs that might come inside. 🙂
Dana Taft says
I’ve never heard of AMDRO before and I’m excited to give them a try. We have a very large yard with lots of landscaping so a quick and easy weed killer would be wonderful.
Toni Counts says
We use the Amdro for ants. And I am VERY careful with the products we use because we have children, one with special needs. I am always very satisfied with it.
Mary Happymommy says
My weed control tip is to get the kids involved in pulling weeds. They think it’s fun and you get a whole lot more done quicker!
My tip for weed control is to pull or hoe them before they go to seed
Peggy Hauck says
This I have not tried. I would like to. Where is it available, I might have missed that in the article. Thank you.
Sandy Heath says
I do not like slugs! I cover with newspaper then mulch to help with weed control.
I use vinegar spray to get rid of pests in my garden
you can cover ground with newspapers before you plant and use mulch to create a barrier against weeds.
Carla P. says
I have learned that removing all sources of standing water drastically improves the mosquito population in our yard. Would love to try the AMDRO outdoor insect killer on the yard to see if I can improve the mosquito population even further! Those little buggers just love me, but I don’t love them. 🙂
Allison Davis Posey says
I’ve got to try this!I
Vunda V says
cardboard under mulch to keep the weeds down!
Harmony B (@hburmeister) says
Use newspaper as a weed block, under mulch
Lisa Brown says
For weeds and gofers: ground cover, like mulch or pebbles.
My best tip is to keep on top of the maintenance. When we first purchased our home it have been vacant for a long time so the weeds were out of control. Its still an ongoing issue but by keeping an eye on it and doing yard work weekly its improving.
courtney b says
use an exterminator once a month
Nancy Carr says
Boiling water seems to help me keep the weeds to a minimum.
To deter pests, plant marigolds! Also I use sevin dust especially for ants! I also spread newspaper under mulch or straw to fend off weeds!
We have used weed barrier and done raised gardens that helped with weeds a lot. We have a brand new huge yard, so $50 would be super handy!
I use hot vinegar. And I also hoe & just pull them out. Especially after it rains. They come out easier.
This looks like a great product. I’d never heard of it before reading it here. I’m STILL working on getting control of some weeds and grass. Grrrrr…..
Vera K says
I use mulch and try to keep up with the weeding
Pat K says
Mulch helps quite a lot. Great giveaway!
My Mom used to put pepper in the flower bed that they neighbor’s cat decided was a good place to go potty. It worked.
Amanda Sakovitz says
I remove weeds weekly
In my garden I used a black sheet like barrier over the dirt then put rocks. Everywhere else, disguise with mulch for the summer!
Amber Price says
I’ve just been pulling them but need to change that!
amy pugmire says
we have crazy weeds. I have tried everything we are wanting to do the tarp and rock thing
recently we had these caterpillar worms eating our rose bush leaves, we put sevin dust on them and it seems to be helping. (but, hate the look of white powder on the bushes)
We put down mulch last year and it seems to work pretty well
Ginny G. says
I am still working on mine. I’ve tried vinegar, another brand of weed control spray (didn’t work) but will be trying this brand next. Thanks for the chance to win.
No thank you. : (
nancy bowers says
Be diligent to get weed roots out before applying mulch.
Amanda Moore says
I would like to try that stuff on my yard!
Thomas Murphy says
I pull out weeds every week and spray natural weed and pest killer
Wild Orchid says
I like to be proactive with weeds and pre-treat the ground before they start coming up.
Pull weeds often and use weedkiller!
Ashley Tucker says
Stay on top of pulling weeds so it makes it easier each time
Nickie Moseley says
My best weed advice is to use that WEED-EATER like a MAD WOMAN!! haha
my best pest advice is pepperming oil aroudn windows and doors to keep out spiders
Don’t let the weeds get out of control…weed often!
Melissa M says
I pour lemon juice on the weeds. And for the animals in my garden I put bacon grease around it once a week
Heather S says
I pull the weeds out! 🙂
Lauren P says
New home, new yard, needs work 🙂 Fingers crossed!
Julianne Johnson says
Live in a high rise apartment 🙂
ellen casper says
Weed every week!
I try to get my daughter to help me. We go out and pull a couple weed each day when we water the flowers. It also gives me a chance to teach her about the plants that are in the garden.
Samantha H. says
Typically, we use a homemade remedy for weeds – good old vinegar.
Nancy C. says
I like the battery power feature for spraying, seems like it would make the process easier.
Sara Floyd says
I try to keep on top of the weeding, or it becomes unmanagable
Susan Christy says
The dandelion digger is the best invention of all time! I use it on all kinds of weeds.
