    19-0-6 .10% dimension at Lesco here - they charge me $29 a bag ... about $16 for pre-m. I'm a decent customer of Lesco's but they give me no satisfaction on price. The service isn't there, either - the good ones go away to do something else, the bad ones go to work for TGCL and we're left with the in between transition time. That's why I'm looking for other suppliers. BWI won't call me back - they must not be interested. I'm looking at another local supplier, who I'm supposed to meet with on Wed. Any other suggestions?

    Definately check JD, also double check your prices with Shemin's, especially if you buy plant material there. They might work with you.

    I know Helena is all over SC, I'll call them ... they carry Lebanon, if I'm not mistaken. Not sure if we have a Shemin's or JD around here, but I will check. Seeing as how I'm doing nothing but apps now, it's in my best interests to bring chem costs down.

    Out of curiosity, why are you doing the 2 step? That's sorta funny between Rick and Dennis on price. I got quoted 13.40 for that product. And $19.80 15-0-15 .22 dim.

    My local Lesco dealer gets $26.30 for the 50-lb. bag of Dimension, which is purported to cover 12,000 square feet. I assume you are all giving prices for the same bag. Yes?
