Except on your own property, you cannot kill any weeds until you get your pesticide license. Fertilizer...fine.

Study and get your license.

What types of turf are you dealing with?

Hi Paradise,
Looks like your based out of Texas, lots of stoloniferous types down there, do you know what type your customer has St. Augustine, Bermuda, ect.

This will help with herbicide selection and fertility needs.

Dave
