    i have this canceled fert client (that left me for cheaper price) next to a current full service client of mine. today i was mowing the property's (still mow both thou) and the canceled one had the new guy put this down 2 weeks ago ATRAZINE with 18-0-8( peeked in his 80's s10 bed). today this is what it looks like.
    the green side is my full service clients property. the red line is the property line, and this is saint Augustine grass with reclaimed water for irrigation. Don't you love the quality that low prices gives you.

    says up until june 15th on the label, soil temps are a bit high in june for me to even think about using atrazine, call me overly cautious, it also effects green up and prunes the root system on st. augustine

    i've had to "rescue" some DIY people late in the summer after using bonus-s, kinda sad that wally world and home cheapo still have it out:(
