Crabgrass & Spurge, correct? What's the best Lesco granule product to eliminate these weeds in a Tall Fescue lawn?

I sprayed ours with Drive XLR8 plus 3way.

Granular product? Use Lesco Dimension plus fertilizer; use it in spring before the temp hits 80 degrees. It has slight effects after the crabgrass has emerged. Slowed down the crab in my neighbor's yard by reducing growth about 3 weeks ago. At this date...there is no granular product for crabgrass.

Spurge...very tough weed. Not likely anything granular would be effective.
Both spurge and crabgrass are slowed by cool nights and killed by frost.

Spurge is esp. hard to kill this time of year as it is mature.

If no granular products work, what product(s) do you recommend spraying with? Any very good Lesco products for Crabgrass & Spurge?

I had good luck in a test spray 3 weeks ago. T-zone worked well, but T-Zone Plus Speedzone worked best of all...for spurge. Different thread, with photos.

For crabgrass use Drive XLR-8--max strength. Include a good surfactant in both cases. Two sprayers spray crab and spurge separately.

Don't expect miracles, weeds are old and tough.
