Glyphosate spraying on weeds. How long must I wait before mulching?

In my experience it takes weeks for glyphosate to kill weeds. Must I wait until they are dead or can I mulch earlier?

Hi Don,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Yes we recommend mulch once the weeds have died down in case second application is needed. However, for quick control, you may look into Try 'Yates Zero Rapid 1-Hour Action Weedkiller Ready-To-Use'. to kill weeds fast. See most weeds start to die in 1 hour.

Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
