Is it Poco Verde Pools and Landscapes? Or is it maybe one of these other locations? Just trying to find the cheapest place to buy it.

Yes - Poco Verde. It's kind of weird, because you walk in the door and you can see people in meetings in a conference room. There are two little counters to the left and to the right of the entrance. When I walked in someone got up out of the meeting and came and sold me the cornmeal along with a couple of other things I saw on the shelf. Good products, local, non-toxic, effective. Wish I had thought of it!! Never met the Garden Guy, but I remember seeing him on TV in the early 2000's.

It looks like this thread got moved to the garden section. More information is going to be helpful. I live in Arizona in the Phoenix area. We don't have/don't want grass in the areas of weed killing. Xeriscaping is very common in this area. Here is a link to some common Arizona weeds.

Well of course you have to reapply it, if more weeds grow (and of course, they will). It only kills the existing weed/plant that you spray. It has no effect on the soil whatsoever.

Correct. Roundup is a weed killer, not a preventive sterilizer or preemergent.
