May I inquire which herbicide you use? I need recommendations for both broad and specific apps. TYVM.

On this occasion, it would have been RM18 - short-acting, kills everything in a couple of days but you can plant immediately afterward.
I also use RM43, which is persistent - I think it claims to be effective for up to a year, but in practice the weeds around here rebound after maybe three months.
Then there's good old 2,4-D (it's legal here!) for selectively killing off broadleaf plants while leaving grass intact; often used for lawn weed control, but also good for general brush killing when you want to leave grasses alive for erosion control.
