I have been killing grass and buttercups for quite a while this year. Once I got a proper sprayer for my vinegar solution, the killing factor intensified. You can't get the coverage using a hand sprayer...and the toll it takes on your hand after a few weeks/months is pretty brutal. The secret to killing buttercups is this. Spray the buttercups and cover the leaves completely. Then hold the spray nozzle on the ground to let it soak in to the root a little bit. I was able to kill them in one or two applications. I was up to 15 sprays with the hand sprayer and still couldn't kill them. So it must be the deeper spraying that did it. I am thrilled. I have one path in the garden pretty much clear of grass etc, so I took a little stash of redwood mulch that I had tucked away and spread it along the one side of the garden. Oh my gosh, it looks so much better. Now I'm anxious to finish it off.
