    used snap shot last season with good results but i would like to use my tank sprayer this season.
    going to try gallery,it seems to be a broad pre-m that covers most broadleaf and grass weeds.

    if it the mulched beds that you talked about and its weed control you are looking for try snap shot it's a granular. i was very happy last season with the control...this yr. i like to use my lesco tank sprayer .i been looking into gallery..
    the snap shot covers 10,000 and cost around $70.00/bag.january 2002 grounds mag. has a nice artical on weed control.

    Ant Do you do enough beds to warrant changing your tank mix all the time. I have only one sprayer and it would seem like a lot of hassle to me to clean and mix the tank that often. Oh ya snap shot. Harvestman
