    Is either one better? What are the pros and cons of each?

    Thank you,

    I like to use liquid spray for weed control. But if you do use granular weed control put it down when its dewy or lawn is moist.

    Liquid weed control is way better as far as broadleaf weeds go, but when it comes to a preemergent I don't know, I think granular may be better

    With fert, Liquid will give you a quicker green-up with proper watering but granular will be longer lasting, And getting the app watered in right away, is not as important with granular. Out here in Colorado, I do liquid apps in the spring with cooler temps and more moisture, this is fert, weed control, pre-m, and insect control. Then when the hot dry heat hits in Late June, I switch up to a slow release granular fert and spot treat any weeds with a backpack sprayer. Then when Sept. comes around I swith back to liquid apps.
