I don't know what kind of deal you can get at your chemical dealer cost wise. Depends on quantity. Weed B Gone now kills crabgrass control also, thanks to the new active ingredient, quinclorac. Also known as Drive. What species of grass are you dealing with? Bermuda?
What kind of equipment do you have?
Licensed?
Read through a few of the older posts--you will get a free education in crabgrass control. Use the search function.

all of these are bermuda yards. I am licensed I use a skid sprayer for any liquid apps. This is my first year and I have done pretty good, but these are new accounts they have never got any premergant on them and are covered in grassy weeds and crabgrass. Looked at drive and Q4, there all a little more costly then what I spray for broadleaf

New yards that we pickup this time of year get hit Solitare. We charge at least double if not more for the first application.

Has anybody used Solitare on Bahia grass? It is labeled for seashore paspalum so since Bahia is in the Paspalum family I was wondering if it would be ok. The label doesn't say(far as I seen).
