Best pre and post emergent weed & grass killers?

What are the best pre and post emergent weed and grass killers on the market and where can I get it? I am in the process of obtaining a license, but in the meantime I need to know what my options are for spraying around buildings, fire hydrants, etc-mainly to cut down on trimming time.

If that is the case, it sounds as though you are looking for a growth regulator. Primo works well, but at almost $500/gallon...I haven't been able to convince anyone or justify it. Unless you are just looking to kill everything then Glyphosphate works wonders.
