i think we have to be careful about this question. where do you live , what kind of grass do you have, and why are you trying to kill it? also, roundup has many different formulations and strengths. You're better off using the 46% super concentrate or buying it at a farm store. don't even try the ready to use spray bottles- not the strength your looking for.

I live in the south (FL now, GA previously) and have had great success kiling grass and weeds with Spectracide. You can get it at Home Depot and Lowe's. I personally think it works better/quicker than Round Up and it is significantly cheaper.

Roundup is an excellent product that kills plants down to the roots (except nutsedges). Home Depot will have a couple of products that kill grasses/weeds etc.

Two simple options are:
1. Salt
2. Chlorox
Neither are listed for turf grass use however but both will work.

Do you happen to know if the salt will attract termites, roaches, ants, etc?
Mu spouse and I are thinking of spreading over the rocks, (desert landscaping).
Thanks

Roundup is an excellent killer of perennial grasses. In my opinion, salt is a bad choice.
