Don't bother with those products. Look for a John Deere Store close to you. I know that area well, I used to have a boat at Northwest Harbor Marina. You may have to go to Raleigh if there's nothing in New Bern. Check out Goldsboro also. Are you spraying or doing granular applications.
Still get by there about twice a year
Good Luck. and check out your turf requirements (Bermuda, St. Augustine, Centipede and fescue) ie Atrazine is great control for weeds in Centipede and St. Augustine but WILL fry fescue. Know your products. Most guys here are willing to help answer questions.
We all are merely gleaners from the masters who were here before us.
