    My Lesco dealer recommended the liquid momentum to deal with my broadleaf problem. At $60 a gallon that is a bit steep for me. I realize that gallon would probably last me a very very long time but it's still a lot of money. Are there cheaper but as effective alternative or should I just shell out the money?

    He did say that I could get in a granular form for $30 but I recall reading somewhere that the granuals are not as effective as the liquid. Any suggestions?

    Man, there is alot cheaper. a standard 24d, and a personal favorite is Triplet. I got a jug of triplet 2 1/2 gallons for $58.00 at the co-op.

    Three-way, Triplet, Trimec, etc. would save you some money. Momentum is a better herbicide IMO. 2,4-D will only give mediocre results on many weeds.
    I also like Eliminate, but costs about the same as Momentum.

    If you only need one small jug, why not get the better product?

    Is there anywhere else I can get it. My co-op is not close.

    Are the granuals just as effective?

    Nope... Try some Weed-B-Gone concentrate.

    are you putting this on customers lawns or your own? if you are applying it on customer's lawns and don't know what weed b gone is then i'm scared.

    like the others said stick to liquid, 3 way, trimec, triplet. and if it is your own lawn and you are just spot treating go get the weed b gone from lowe's...it is a selective herbicide just like the others.

    Sorry I had a brain fart and was thinking about Round Up. Does Lesco carry 3-way, trimec, or triplet. If not where else can I get it?
