    Witch fertilizer is better to use liquid or granule? And what brand? I used Scott's granule with weed and feed and still had a lot of weeds.

    If you used the granule weed and feed and it didn't work....are you maybe answering your own question?

    Yes liquid weed control works better!

    Liquid= weed....Granule= feed. This offers the best results and the most economical way to reach those results. Rarely are they interchangeable. Just my opinion.

    So a granule type isn't any good for weeds? Do you need a license to spread granule fert? If so, why? Harry homeowner can buy the same stuff at Lowes and spread it without a license.

    Granule for pre-M is fine, as long as it gets watered in.... any other herbicide should be sprayed IMO. Granular post emergents can work for Harry Homeowner if he follows the label directions, and wets the lawn before applying, but it still isn't as effective as spraying.

    Granular formulations for the most part miss clover and don't work very good.

    Foliage must be wet and also the prill size can make a BIG difference on congtrol. Larger granules just bounce off!

    Yes...anytime you are applying ANY pesticide to anyone's lawn other then your own you must have a license.
