Need help with fertilzer

Hi Im in NW Suburbs of Chicago Im looking for a good fertilzer and weed program . I have 25 or so of my 60 residental accounts that I fertilze. Ive been using Shaws Weed and Feed and Spring Valley. Im not really happy with their products. Im looking at Lebonan or possibly the new Duration that is out. Does anyone have any input? I Buy from Town and Country or Russeo now.

I buy my stuff from Reinders. They usually have Anderson and that works really good. Here is a little secret. Granular fertilizers are the way to go, but granular weed controls aren't that great. If your gonna do a weed and feed app, put down granular fertilizer and then spray for weeds.

I should add, some good sprays are Surge, Vessel and Speedzone. Each is good if used correctly.
