    I am near Aiken SC. Is there a more cost effective method to eradicate BAHIA Grass in an established Centipede lawn than MANOR?

    Banzaitoy - what's your cost per thousand with Manor? I hear Vantage can be used, but I'm unfamiliar with the price.

    BTW, Helena's got Manor for $130, not sure who you're getting it from or what you're paying.

    We use Vantage. Works great and on Bermuda too. $135 per gallon.

    So $1.47/m for Manor vs. 84ยข/m for Vantage ... that from JD Landscapes?

    Actually Lesco. FYI... Lesco will price match anyone now.

    Yeah, I know ... I just can't get solid answers out of the local Lesco. For the service, it's almost worth driving 2 hours.

    I know what you mean. In this market they have almost a monopoly on chems. JDL sometimes can get what we need and beat the price. However, Lesco started matching the RoundUp QuickPro dry for $79 a gallon from JDL and then dropping the price to $75 per for us.
