So getting 32 gallons of mix for $110 and being able to target weeds, sedges and grassy weeds isn't too terribly bad.
Actually you are right on the effective cost. Since I was only mixing a small sprayer for spot spraying you don't need much. It was the $100/pound that made me suck wind.

I weighed the amount needed on a powder scale, then found a measuring spoon for miracle grown that when filled level full, gave me the amount needed. In mixing up a couple sprayers, I haven't made a dent in it.

It mixes very easily
