You may have seen my recent post on weed control, which shared my top tips for helping you manage pesky garden weeds. One of my tips was to use a weedkiller product to deal with tough, problem weeds, and I used Job done® Tough Ready to Use Weedkiller, which proved to be very effective. In this post, I’m going to put this product to the test against a leading competitor, to see how well it performs.
In my experience, a weedkiller product is a great option for weeds that are just too much trouble to deal with any other way. You know the ones I mean: they might be very well-established, growing in a tricky spot such as the base of a wall, or with roots that are just plain difficult to remove by digging. In all of these scenarios, a product that’s specifically designed to deal with tough weeds is ideal.
Job done® Tough Ready to Use Weedkiller is designed to kill tough weeds such as brambles, nettles and dandelions, giving visible results in 24 hours and preventing re-growth for up to three months. The ready-to-use spray bottle is super-simple to use: you just give it a good shake, open the safety nozzle and spray.
It’s a good idea to wait for a dry, non-windy day before using a weedkiller spray, as you need to avoid it coming into contact with your other plants. Once you’re ready to use, the aim is to spray the weeds until they are thoroughly wet, but stop before the liquid starts to run off the plant.
I saw really good results from Job done® Tough Ready to Use Weedkiller; it tackled tricky weeds at the base of walls and in gravel, as well as some really nasty brambles down at the allotment. To illustrate just how effective it is, the team behind the product have asked me to test it against a leading competitor product and show you the results.
To carry out my test, I chose two similar patches of weeds and treated one with Job done® Tough Ready to Use Weedkiller, and the other with the competitor product. To keep things as fair as possible, I chose patches that were close together and therefore in similar conditions, followed the instructions on each product, and treated both patches on the same day.
Here’s each patch before any weedkiller was applied.
I then took pictures of each patch every few days, to track how well each product worked at killing the weeds. Shall we take a look at the results?
It’s obvious straight away that Job done® Tough Ready to Use Weedkiller is getting to work more quickly than the competitor. It really does live up to the claim that you can see results within 24 hours.
The difference between the two patches is even more pronounced after five days, with the weeds in the Job done® patch very much on their way out, while there are still a lot of healthy green leaves on the weeds in the competitor patch.
After twelve days, it’s hard to believe both patches were treated at the same time!
After eighteen days, you can see that the weeds are definitely struggling in the competitor patch, but they’re still not dead. It’s quite hard to spot what’s left of the weeds in the Job done® patch.
This last pair of pictures was taken over three weeks after application, and I think it’s fair to say that some of the weeds in the competitor patch have survived, and will need a second application to finish them off. On the other hand, the weeds in the Job done® patch were completely gone within a couple of weeks.
I think the results speak for themselves really, don’t they?!
Job done® Tough Ready to Use Weedkiller has worked quicker, and completely killed all the weeds treated. The competitor product took longer to work, and after over three weeks some of the weeds still weren’t dead.
Based on my experience of using Job done® Tough Ready to Use Weedkiller against a leading competitor, I can honestly say it’s a much more effective weedkiller. Basically, it lives up to it’s name, and gets the job done with minimal effort and fuss – which is exactly what you need when dealing with something as tiresome as weeds! If you’re looking to deal with a stubborn weed problem it’s definitely up to the job.
Will you be using Job done® Tough Ready to Use Weedkiller to tackle tough, problem weeds in your garden?
