I'm in a southern state and was looking for some feedback different lesco granulars for Late winter applications.

0-0-8 .43% Stonewall

0-0-7 .10 Dimension

0-0-7 .86% Pre-M mini

Liquids (via backpack sprayer)

I'm between Pendulum Aquacap and Barricade. I've read a lot of posts on both and heard lots of positives for both with some negs for Pendulum. My dealer says the Aquacap for either Pendulum or Pre-M allows better defense against the elements. True?

This is my test year. Experimenting on my lawn, neighboring lawns, and some existing customers (mowing customers) lawns. All recommendations are welcome!!

A lot depends on how bad your crabgrass situation was last year. I think Stonewall is a good bet. A lot depends on how much you apply, Dimension at .15 percent is a stronger choice. Use double applications if needed. Or---use double applications in your crabgrass-prone areas, only.
