    I was wondering how many of you just spray Surflan, or a mix, in your beds? If you do, how are the results? I'm looking at costs and it's hard to shell out the money for snapshot this year. Or is there another product out there that i'm missing. Thanks
     
  2. Are you not charging for the application as an add-on cost?

    No it's included in the mulch price
     
  4. hmm....pendulum aquacap is a cheaper alternative and is a spray.....

    All i know is I have used snapshot a couple of times and the results and long term efficacy is amazing.

    Snapshot lasts the whole season, but it's $100 a bag. With that said, it goes a long way.

    I agree snapshot is a great product, but if there is a product that will save me money and have good results I'd rather use it. Pendulum aquacap about 175.00 for 2.5 gallons I can get 88000 sq feet out of that and that's the high rate. doesn't a bag of snap shot cover 22000 sq feet? I think i like those numbers.

    My dealer sold me some Dimension for $60 for a bag and said it treats about 4 less weeds than snapshot

    4 less weeds. Are they annuals or perennials?
