I'm with the rest of you guys weeds need to die with liquid atleast until they make a granular that works. I spray for weeds all the time and fungicide when needed, but I use granular fungicide for pink and gray snow mold it has worked the best for me. I use granular fertilzers all the time except when I use iron to make things real green then I spray.

I have found the best approach is to use a combination of granular and spray.

I'm following the Lesco Fescue program. It works quite well, but I don't attempt to use any granular weed control products except PRE-M.

Instead I use as small sprayer and spot spray weeds. However, I only do small lawns. I have been told numerous times by the Lesco reps NOT to blanket lawns with weed controls unless they are truly infested with weeds. (granular or liquid)

So I spot spray for weed controls and use granular for everything else.

Lesco may have a good point. I have noticed that blanket spraying of lawns seems to cause decline. You see more thatch very often. I think that it kills off essential microbes. The thing is that you can only spot spray weeds that you can see at the time. Walk over a 1/4" dandy and it'll be glowing in another week.

Customers only want to see a clean lawn.

You almost have to give it a blanket at least once.
