Q.Is Weed Killer Safe?

Zone L5B 2Z1 | Anonymous added on June 29, 2021 | Answered

My wife is concerned if I use weed killer on our lawn. She feels that the chemicals will eventually seep into our vegetable garden which is at the bottom of our property. She believes that it would be unsafe for us to eat the vegetables. Are her concerns valid.

It should be safe if you read and follow all the instructions and warnings on the label. Many people fail to dress appropriately or take precautions with the spray, resulting in unsafe usage. It tells on the label how quickly the chemicals become inert.
