For the past 5 years I have used a commercial franchise for all my applications. The relationship has been great as well as the service but I have since grown and find it necessary to do my own fertilizer and weed control for this year. I service only town home developments so these applications are only 3 times per season: March/April, June/July, Aug/Sept. Very few do we apply 4 applications but it does happen. There is a local contractor, who when I stopped by his shop has pallets of a certain Lesco product that he applies all season long. They do have a spray rig that they do a liquid application at some point but I have no idea when. He also told me that Lesco has a product that combines weed control, that although on the expensive side, it kills two birds with one stone. Now with this in mind that all licenses and classes will be taken prior to any application (please no comments), what would be the most cost efficient set-up without losing the quality. Most places we have done for years and require no attention on my part when the necessary apps were made, ie: weed free, green grass, no burns. Can I use just one product with decent results? If so what product, when, and at what intervals? What is going to be the best applicator, a PG? (10+ACRES/9 PROPS.) If I'm going to need a spray rig what is popular? 200gal? What product will I use in the liquid app? Please treat these questions as if I know nothing! (Cuz I don't ) Thanks to all for your replies!
