Is there a growth regulator on the market that's safe for Zoysia, St. Augustine and Fescue? Thanks.

Ask Kirby's Lawn, I think he uses it.

Primo Maxx is awsome on Zoysia, in fact I just killed a fescue lawn and I'm laying Emorald Zoysia sod next week. I tested it last year and mowed the Zoysia 3 times, this guy wants a low maintenance lawn so he is trying it.

Another good thing at .025 oz per k Primo Maxx goes a looonnngg way on Zoysia. I tried it on a small section St Aug, was not as impressed.

What's the cost per k of Primo?

Depends on what you are spraying. Fescue gets .75 oz per k, Zoysia gets 0.25, St Aug get 0.01-0.15. A gallon has 128 ounces so just do the math. PRimo is $430 a gallon.

Thanks for the per k info. I know the best scenario is to have a weed free lawn but, what affect does it have on weeds like clover, if any?

None that I know of, you can mix Momentum with it and knock out 2 problems at once

I don't think you can do both at the same time.

I think you need to wait at least 2 weeks between the 2.

Stunt the growth of the weed while you are trying to kill it? Won't that hinder the effects of the herbicide?

I would seriously check the label on this one, I was told not to.
