I once left diquat+Fusilade foot prints across a lawn. Had to kill the turf grass that crept into the existing beds. Customer did not laugh with me. He is no longer my customer due to violations of my terms of service. The fact that he was a @#$% about an honest mistake was a sign of things to come.

Yea, don't spray Image around mailboxes when centipede is dormant in early spring. Three pieces of sod is cheap compared to a lifetime of "Lessons Learned" Luckily my own mailbox.
