Are you taking about a granular weed n feed<br>product?<p>If so granular weed and feed gives poor results. You need to spray liquid to kill<br>lawn weeds.

yes..granular.<br> applied with dew on the grass is quite effective for granular. i'm starting out with granular this year and doing some spot spraying. spraying is down the road a bit.

Why not back-pack spray all your weeds? Or get a spreader-mount sprayer? <p>Less cost AND better results.

not for weed control! i used to use granuler weed and feed. kills maybe 20% of the weeds if you do it in the morning and 3-4 days before rain is expected.even with those ideal conditions you dont gets good results.

Getting the lawn wet when you're there every time is gonna kill you for scheduling.

How many square feet?<p>I've used to back-pack 100 accounts. (Over 1.2 million square feet) Sure there's better mothods, but I don't think that amount is any big deal. Most hericide formulations are labeled for low volume so you don't have to refill constantly.
