Any products out there you can recomend for a homeowner?

When you say spraying are you talking about a blanket app and still you have 20% weeds?
Or are you spot spraying?

This will get the newbies that were seeds right around now-late may.

Following spring, you may only have to spot spray a couple.

Buy the product NOW, so you have it for the FALL, as it may not be available at that time.

I give this tip to homeowners often, and they like the results.

I spray my fall application right AFTER first frost. The frost triggers the plant to take in all the energy it can before winter. Little does the plant know it's ALL POISON!!! BWHahahaaha!!!!

Can you tell I got rained out today??
Give thanks, for all that He has given.

I'm spot spraying now after the weed and feed spread a few weeks ago, but the littel bastards keep popping up in clusters. They must be a pretty hardy strain of genetics, because they wont even die after a good soak woth the Ortho spot spraying.
