pre- m still out there!

One of my stops yesterday was 5 large lawns (16000 k) on the same side street. As i drove down the sidewalk on my ride on past one of their neighbors, i could see that their lawn had just been treated with pre-m. All i could think driving by was, poor ba$tard lol!

Is there something wrong with that?

Sounds like split apps near the end of a round. Very sound agronomic practice.

We're still finishing up our Pre. Made the switch to Dimension towards the end of the round. Ground temps are still favorable for our area and the next week will see below normal temps with lows in the low 30's and highs in the low 50's. I think there is still plenty of time.

I use both the items listed since both have pros / cons.
