Better think about skipping school for the whole month of September, if you want to get all those 800 lawns treated!!! 800 in 30 days means you will have to do 26-27 per day. Good luck and hope for sunny weather each and every day. Your 15 and how did you get your license?? Or are you just rolling the dice hoping you don't get caught??

Sounds expensive to me....

800 lawns, come on, who else do you work with? What is the average size?

I would test it first, you might get an agtagonistic effect with those, i don't know, also, temps might be too high to use speedzone, it is for cooler weather while Drive works at higher temps, plus is the MSO that the label requires on Drive good for speedzone, I haven't used speedzone, so I can't ansswer any more clearly.

Hey guys -- Lawn Quest is not 18.

I think he's trying to make apoint about all of the exagerrating - overstating -- double talking young members on this site.

IK like Speedzone and I like Drive. I don't know if I would use them together though. I would probably spot spray with drive and blanket spray with the Speedzone. Do you have that much Crab?

I'll keep you updated on the response.

It worked!

FANTASTIC results. Crab is brown and dead -- and there was a lot!! and the other broadleafs including the violets are curled.

No phytotoxicity or yellowing of the turf at all. Mixed the Speedzone and Drive at their maximum suggested rates along with Induce spreader sticker.

As far as the MSO for the Drive. One thing I have found out through my research is that the label suggests MSO so that you can achieve the full preemergent results of the Drive. It spreads the chemical -- but allows it to flow into the soil and create a preemergent barrier. A traditional spreader sticker thwarts this by keeping all of the chemical on the leaf surface -- lessening the preemergent qualities. Since I wasn't looking for any preemergent qualities -- I just used a normal spreader sticker.

Now if Drive wasn't $75/acre this would be the ultimate mix. Regardless -- I think it is a great option for those bad clean-up you get with new customers sometimes.
