Have had good results with Q4, but even better with Momentum Q (lesco/JDL) at abit less cost.

I prefer to do my crabgrass and weed control separately.

Are you using the full rate of 3 oz. per 1000?

I haven't used it for blanket apps (too expensive), but have been getting excellent results in my backpack sprayer for spot treatments. It's not the best on mature crabgrass, but will stun it a little. Very good on broadleafs and nutsedge (what a year for nutsedge!).

Like the add says, the swiss army knife of herbicides.

Agree about Blanket Cost.

I had a new lawn with quite a lot of Bentgrass in the Rye/Fescue mix.......The Q-4 knocks the Crap out of Bent, as well as Wild Violets.
