How long do I wait to plant out a garden bed after using Zero Glyphosate Ready To Use Weedspray?

I'm creating new garden beds in a grassed area. I want to use Zero Weedspray to kill off the lawn and weeds. How long should I wait before putting in the new plants?

Answer: dear Suzanne,

After spraying Zero Glyphosate on the weeds in your garden beds, you will need to wait until the foliage has completely died down and the roots of the weeds have died. This can take up to 3 weeks, depending upon the time of year (works quickly when the weed is actively growing)and the type of weed you are eliminating. When the foliage and roots are dead you can rake over the soil to remove the weeds. You can then incorporate some compost or organic matter into the soil before planting your new plants.
