What's the best Lesco broadleaf weed control (non fertilizer) for a yard covered up w/ Spurge & Crabgrass, moderate Violets, & a little Broadleaf Plantain? OK to treat this time of year?

I've been spraying momentum fx2 + drive xlr8 + sticker. Really good kill however I noticed that it yellowed my Bermuda yards a bit. Didn't phase the fescue. It has been really hot the past few weeks though. Not the best results on cg, but everything else, especially the spurge is gone

The same stuff the sell in bags at Walmart!

With most people here there is two types of grass

Grass and sod. Grass is fescue and sod usually mean Bermuda.

Are you serious? Fescue, centipede, zoysia, Bermuda and others can all be sod. How did you come to this conclusion

I'm talking about customers...ask them what kind of grass they have and they say either sod or grass.

He is in northern VA so he has tall fescue.


Anyway do you have access to quincept? That will take care of it nicely for you.


2,4-D + Quinclorac + Dicamba

I buy it at newsome seed for $230 for 2.5 gallon jug.

Correct, Tall Fescue. Lawn is covered up w/ Spurge. Any granules work well for this stuff?

Should have mentioned, I'm not opposed to Lebanon products either, looking for the best granule broadleaf control for the weeds mentioned earlier.

Lebanon 19-0-6 with lockup will do a good job on it. If you can go liquid, try Q4+. It will clean up everything.

I don't think that product controls Spurge or Crabgrass. Below is copied directly from Lebanons site on weeds controlled:

bedstraw, burdock, chickweed, chicory, clover, dandelion, dock, dollarweed, eclipta, healall , ivy (ground), knotweed, lambsquarters, medic (black), morningglory, peppergrass, pigweed, plantain, plantain (broadleaf),
plantain (buckhorn), purslane, ragweed, sheepsorrel, shepherd’s purse, speedwell, thistle

From my research, there doesn't seem to be a granule application for postemergent control of Spurge & Crabgrass, correct?

Your best bet is to learn from a qualified person/company.

I doubt you are licensed for pesticides, especially with the questions you are asking.

We all need to learn, to show that LCO's are not a bunch of non-educated people.

Remember at the end of the day, YOU are responsible for applications you make.

Does not matter that "xyz" said this will work for the specific need, if you mess up, its your a## on the line.

Momentum was the best product that they made. Too bad they don't make it anymore. You can still get the formulation but for most of us it's not labeled for most of the work we do.

I feel your facts may be incorrect. I can still purchase it
