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.

Stops weeds for about 3 months

By Agnes

from Denton, TX, USA

Pros

  • Easy to use

Cons

  • Didn't work as expected
  • expensive & time consuming to treat every 4 months
  • Ineffective

Best Uses

    Comments about SCOTTS Ortho® Groundclear® Complete Vegetation Killer (0430510):

    I've tried this product several times over a five year timeframe (maybe I'm just an optimist) with poor results. I carefully mixed and applied the product each time, but ended up pulling weeds 3 to 6 months later. I am headed out right now to re-treat after 4 months. If anyone knows an effective soil sterilizer, please share this information. Thanks.

          Purchased this in May and did exactly how you are to use. It did kill the weeds within a few days, but today on July 1st I see weeds from the dead areas regrowing. So they say up to a year is what I expected, well a little over a month is not a year..won't purchase again

                  This product does exactly as it states. It will kill all weeds! Be care when applying to wanted plants, for it can kill their root system too. I ve used it t for the past 3 yrs and it does eliminate weeds until the next year, but if weeds are not actively growing, you will need to re-apply. An awesome product!

                          Used this product on sidewalk and driveway weeds, mulched areas with weeds growing through, and around fences. After 5 days the weeds are still growing like nothing happened. What a waste of money!

                                  I LOVED Ground Clear, but like many others have said, it's changed! Last year I mixed per instructions as I always do. It turned my ground rocks white for 3 months and the weeds flourished! It used to kill for a year or more...now I'm lucky if it kills any weeds! Guess I'll have to go to the dark side and use Monsonto's Round-Up.....sad day!

                                    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

                                        Every year I stop weeds and grass from taking over my rock patio. I simply spray where I don't want any growth and viola. I typically see the effects the first time it rains after I spray. Instead of the weeds growing, they turn brown and die. I love this product.

                                          I have used this product for the last 6 years to get weeds, grass,etc out of narrow expansion joints in my drive way, sidewalks and curbs. A couple of things to note, when you mix in a gallon sprayer put the Ground clear in FIRST then the water, screw the pump assembly in TIGHT and start to pressurize the tank and SHAKE at the same time, then start to spray, and SHAKE every now and then. I spray in April and then depending on the weather and rain fall I need to hit it around end of Sept as I have a lot of trees, bushes and Shrubs that germinate seeds all year round.

                                                  This works greats on my driveway, sidewalks, and around my flower beds. We tried other brands and we are very satisfied with the results of the Ortho Ground Clear, we will not switch again.

                                                          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.

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.

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.

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.
