    I really wanted this product to work. It sounds great...kills and prevents all at the same time. So I went to Kmart and purchased it. Mixed it according to directions, sprayed the areas quite liberally, and 4 days later, nothing. Zilch. Not even brown spots or partially killed weeds. I've used many weed sprays in our yard before and all of them have given me some sort of results, so this was weird for me. Waiting to hear back now from Ortho if they will refund my $20. Now looking to find something that actually works. Suggestions welcome! Love the idea of preventing weeds/kill weeds combo spray.

      I am a professional landscaper. I have used this product since I have started my business, and have really had great results from it until now. I mixed it the way it was recommended from the manufacturer, and it now turned my customers red stones to white stones. I will no longer be using this product. I am terribly disgusted

                    • must be careful - it is a chemical.

                      I use to spend hours multiple times durning the Spring and Summer season pulling weeds from my driveway pavers. The weed also required my to power spray between the pavers to remove the weed roots. Then apply fresh sand. That is now a thing of the past using the Ortho weed killer has freed both myself and spouse to do other more enjoyable activities while my driveway and walkway look beautifull with much less effort and having lasting results.

                        I like the fact that I can get out and apply product once a year, and not have to see weeds the remainder of the year. I have a dedicated watering can just to apply ground clear. I try to get it applied after we have had some sort of moisture and it works like a charm. Product can take a while before everything starts to die, so you need a little patience. Mixing is not the easiest as the product foams when you add water to it. Overall I love this weed killer, I applied it early season, and with all the rain we have received this year, my gravel driveway remains weed free months later and my neighbors look like they are raising weeds!

                                  At our vacation home, fighting weeds is a never ending battle. Since I prefer to spend my time on more relaxing projects, I have come to rely on Ortho Groundclear. I generally use the concentrate and apply with a tank sprayer. It is still pricier than other similar products, but I feel the concentrate is more cost effective than the ready to use. Unfortunately, I have yet to see cessation of weeds for one year, with maybe 6 months being more typical. I knew the first year that I used this product multiple applications would be necessary because the land had been neglected for a few years. Now I can spray periodically and the never-ending weeds are at least manageable along the very long and curved circular driveway. I use approximately 6-7 concentrate containers per year! I would give this 5 stars except for the cost of the product and the fact that my weeds reappear before the promised one year.

                                          I prefer Ortho products in general, and used this a number of years ago when it was a higher concentration or something. As the recent reviews show, now it doesn't work, is a PITA to use, and is a low value compared to the competition. Your co-opetition is still a real concentrate, and has nearly 3x the coverage per dollar. My guess is you are phasing out this product for some reason. The new product mix ratio is 1qt to a gallon. This is a PITA to mix given that there is no visual level indicator or scale as found on most concentrate products from small 2 cycle oil bottles to similar gallon jugs of antifreeze. It also cannot be applied with a Dial-N-Spray. Still I bought the product based on past performance. Last year I mixed it to the proper ratio and applied in late July. Many happy weeds reappeared in late September. This year I mixed to a ~1.3-1.5 higher concentration and applied in mid May. Many weeds were happy in late July. The days were sunny, temperature below 80degreesF, and no rain for at least a day. I used to apply the original Ground Clear concentrate with a Dial-N-Spray in CO more diluted than the recommend amount. It was effective for at least 6 months, and usually a year. It was easy to measure for sprayer spot treatments since it was only a few oz per gallon. If I remember correctly, the coverage was a decent value. Please fix the product or remove it.

                                              We purchased this product in the concentrate as we have the "other" brand in the past. My husband followed the directions to the letter and we might as well have put plain water down. We had used the last of the other product and saw results within 24 hrs. The Ortho product did NOTHING to kill the weeds. We are very disappointed and will not purchase or recommend this product. A waste of time and money.

                                                I mixed and sprayed according to the label. Some of the fine-stemmed weeds did die after 3 days or so, but the more substantial weeds with larger stalks and leaves only got brown on the edges and completely bounced back to health within a week. Rain was not a factor. I cannot recommend this product. I'm going to try some of the popular homemade vegetation killers.

                                                  I bought this product to save money. The product that we usually use cost considerably more but as it turns out it you get what you pay for. I used ground clear on our stone driveway and parking area. Within 7 to 10 days after the application all of the green vegatation was brown and dying, I was initially very happy. Our driveway was clear of any growth for about a month, within the last two weeks it looks as if I didn't apply anything this year. I will not purchase or recommend this product. I do recommend that you visit your local Ag. store and use either of the products that they will recommend and you will get the desired results, no grass or weeds.

                                                    We have bought this product the last three years and never experienced a problem until this year. The previous years it has killed weeds for the entire season. We followed the same instructions as always and have not had anymore rain this year than in years past. Not sure if they have changed the formula or what is different this year. Very frustrated, we spent a lot of money on product to cover several areas.

                                                        It kill the small weeds for 3 weeks, now they are back . That is not up to a year. Wasted my money.

                                                            I spent over 120 dollars on 4 applications of the product, that's mixed about 20 gallons worth. I followed the instructions to the letter. I drenched the weeds and reapplied after heavy rains. The weeds flourished. I even applied this on a small patch of unwanted grass. it died then grew back twice the size with weeds mix in. I absolutely don't recommend this product.

I sprayed this on a beautiful 73 degree spring day. The weeds were in various stages of growth but were all around an inch or less. It's been 3 days so far and the weeds all still look perky and green. I know I used plenty of product on each of these weeds and it didn't rain until the following evening. Very disappointed.

I have a crushed rock driveway with a detached single car garage, shed and exterior two level work bench. I do a lot of potted gardening as well as in ground beds. After completely re-surfacing this area I used GroundClear on the whole area upon the completion with only spot treatment the following two. I've been using GroundClear for weed control in this area for the last 3 years. The area remains almost immaculate. Great results. Just as a side note one of my two neighbors has the same rock/surface treatment which was resurfaced professionally 1 year prior to mine with no weed treatment. They have to mow their weeds/driveway area. I have repeatedly recommended Ortho GroundClear to no avail.

Though we love it, spring and summer chores can become overwhelming. Several years ago I discovered Ortho Ground Clear. Now each spring I pull out the backpack sprayer and spend a day spraying the gravel barn lane, fence lines and around our stone-dust riding ring. Now, I do mix the concentrate a tad stronger than the directions, because we've got some tough weeds out here, and I do have to treat a few stubborn individuals throughout the summer, but the overall time saved is so appreciated. I never touch a weed-wacker and the barn lane looks great.

This product does exactly what it claims it will do. I've tried other products that claim to do the same thing, but fall far short. The directions are very clear and easy to follow. You simply mix the product with water and start spraying. I saw results in about (2) hours. This is the only product I will buy from now on.

I only use 4 ounces to 4 gallons in my little pump sprayer. I have a huge mulched area the whole side of my property and I just go around about every two weeks and spray any stragglers or new weeds. It doesn't kill anything I don't want to, even though I spray dangerously close! Using this small dose it lasts forever (sorry Scotts) and I don't harm the surroundings.
