pre-m for beds. this year i am going with gallery. what are you going to use?

used snap shot last season with good results but i would like to use my tank sprayer this season.
going to try gallery,it seems to be a broad pre-m that covers most broadleaf and grass weeds.
what are you going to use?

scottie:
if it the mulched beds that you talked about and its weed control you are looking for try snap shot it's a granular. i was very happy last season with the control...this yr. i like to use my lesco tank sprayer .i been looking into gallery..
the snap shot covers 10,000 and cost around $70.00/bag.january 2002 grounds mag. has a nice artical on weed control.

I'm sticking with the Snapshot.

P.S. Scottie, when did you get your certification?

Ant Do you do enough beds to warrant changing your tank mix all the time. I have only one sprayer and it would seem like a lot of hassle to me to clean and mix the tank that often. Oh ya snap shot. Harvestman
