when a fert outfit says there putting on fert and weed killer does that mean that, that comes in one application or do they do it a second time with the other chemical?

Can be done well either way.

A liquid tank mix saves labor though costs a little more. You also can't claim to be precticing IPM. This can involve wasting huge amounts of cheap herbicide. The fert will probably cost more than granular depending on what's being used.

Two trips across the lawn (one with spreader, one with sprayer) is more common around here. But it's a huge waste of labor. However it can include weed IPM if pressure is low.

That's where the Permagreens shine. Being able to do both at once, but with straight herbicides.;)
