DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Not for use on plants being grown for sale or other commercial use, or for commercial seed production, or for research purposes. For use on plants intended for aesthetic purposes or climatic modification and being grown in ornamental gardens or parks, or on golf courses or lawns and grounds.

BARRIER Ornamental Landscaping Herbicide is recommended for use in all established landscape plantings in institutional, ornamental, and residential sites. BARRIER Ornamental Landscaping Herbicide is intended to be applied by lawn care operators, service technicians, maintenance applicators, and other landscape personnel.
Institutional sites are defined as areas around properties or facilities providing a service to public or private organizations including, but not limited to, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, museums, libraries, sport facilities, golf courses, and office buildings. Ornamental sites include established plantings around residences, parks, streets, retail outlets, cemeteries, industrial and institutional buildings. Finally, residential sites are defined as areas associated with the household or home life including, but not limited to apartment complexes, condominiums, and patient care areas of nursing homes, mental institutions, hospitals, or convalescent homes.
BARRIER Ornamental Landscaping Herbicide can be used for residual weed control in these non-cropland areas:
- Around trees, shrubs, hedges, woody ornamentals, nonbearing fruit trees (ornamental), and certain groundcovers established in shelterbelts, windbreaks, and landscape plantings.
- Under fencelines, along fences, driveways, parking areas, parking lots, and borders of flower beds.
- Along roads and highways and under guard rails.
- Along golf cart pathways, sidewalks, and cemetery memorials.
- Around residences, buildings, and other outbuildings.
For general weed control under asphalt (in areas such as roadways, parking lots, recreational areas), after final grade is achieved, apply 250 pounds of product per acre (5 ¾ pounds of product per 1,000 square feet). Treated area should be covered with asphalt as soon as possible. For resurfacing work, existing weeds should be sprayed with a contact herbicide prior to application.
This chemical has properties and characteristics associated with chemicals detected in groundwater. The use of this chemical in areas where soils are permeable, particularly where the water table is shallow may result in groundwater contamination.
