PISTOL® is a barrier acting non-selective total herbicide for the control of a wide range of annual and perennial broad-leaved weeds and grasses on soft surfaces in amenity situations.
- Long lasting prevention against weed germination.
- Resilient – controls most diuron resistant weeds.
Apply PISTOL® post-emergence of weeds at any time from March until the end of October, provided that the weeds are actively growing.
Annual broad-leaved weeds should have at least two fully exposed leaves, and annual grasses should be at the one leaf growth stage or beyond.
Some perennial weeds, including Docks, Perennial Sow Thistle and Willowherb are best treated just before flowering or the setting of seed.
PISTOL® will give initial ‘knockdown’ and thereafter residual control of a wide variety of broad-leaved weeds and narrow-leaved weeds.
PISTOL® controls these weeds for over 6 months.
PISTOL® may be used on soft and gravel amenity surfaces. These areas include: – Industrial areas – Fence lines – Around obstacles (street furniture, signage) – Beneath pylons – Road edges – Tree ringing mature trees – Open soil areas – Railway ballast.

Rates variable. 5L & 20L packs
Approved for use on hard surfaces.
Controls grasses, broad leaved weeds and mosses. New-Way Weedspray produces discolouration and browning of the foliage within a few hours of treatment. Perennial weeds generally require more than one application for control but annual weeds are usually controlled with one treatment.
Application Apply the spray so that leaves and stems are fully wetted before run-off. As the product works by contact action it is important that the weed is fully covered otherwise there will be partial control. The product is not translocated within the plant and therefore is safer to use around trees, shrubs and other valuable plants.
Mixing Mix 1 part New-Way Weedspray to 3 parts of clean water. For example in a 16 litre knapsack sprayer mix 4 litres of New-Way Weedspray to 12 litres of water in the following manner. Half fill spray tank with clean water. Add the required amount of New-Way Weedspray. Fill the tank with more clean water to the required level. Agitate before use.
Can be used all year round.
