Super Trimec will cover most broadleaf weeds- use a sticker if rain is in the forecast.

My first round I went with Momentum from Lesco and didn't get the results I was looking for. I tried Three-Way yesterday and will see how this works.

I've had good luck with both Millennium Ultra and Speedzone. The Speedzone is a quick killer and it doesn't smell nearly as bad as the Millennium Ultra.
I have cool season grasses, KY blue, Fescues and rye. I use a sticker all the time and find it helps keep it on the tough to kills like violets.

What is a name of a sticker that Lesco sells and what does it cost?

Thanks

Lesco's Spreader-Sticker is the name. I think it lists for ~$26/gallon.
