Spring is coming. I saw several Flowering Quince today as well as a native variety plum we have on the west side of Buda along FM1626. I think the plum is a Chickasaw Plum. The Mountain Laurel's should be popping pretty soon as well. I need to get a picture of the rare white flowering Mountain Laurel on West Courtyard Drive near the 360 bridge.

I don't do any lawn sprays usually myself. I sub out the lawns sprays since my clients rarely have issues.

This time of year Celcius.
I am not a big fan of using a 3way when our grasses are greening up, especially on St Augustine.

I do. To me the only negative is that it takes a little longer to work in this cool weather. I mix it with MSO. I my personal opinion, the 3 way products are old school and the Celcius [and some of the other products] are new school. To me it is really a no brainer. Most 3 ways are much harder on our Southern grasses especially during Spring green up and warm [around 85] temperatures. Well our grasses really do not start growing good until the warmer temps so that does not leave much of a window plus they are only good for broadleaf weeds. To me using Celcius is a great way to go because it is safe at all temps and will get the broadleaf weeds as well as grassy weeds. This time of year it will help burn the Poa, Rescuegrass, Bunch/Tall Fescue, ect... earlier and also has some post properties. It is safe for two applications a year at medium rate so I do one now and again around June.
I do use 3 way on the few that have Fescue because of shade and also in the Fall with Simazine.

I read that if you mix celcius with Revolver it will kill dallisgrass...i have a couple of lawns with dallisgrass that Im trying to get rid of. But would that be good ob the St Augustine??
