    What are you guys using that has worked best for spring weed and feed, cost and effect. Were are you getting it, are you using liduid or solid? This would be for commercial work.

    My guess is, that if he had his license, he'd already know where to get material.

    Yes, playing with chemicals is very hard on drinking water

    So they give you a list of current herbicide suppliers in your area after you pass the test? Must be something new.

    Check for a John Deer Landscapes location in your area. Liquid and granual type herbicides and fertillizers do the same thing. An advantage to a liquid fertilizer is that you can apply it with pre- and post- emergent herbicides and knock out two things out at once to reduce spraying time....

    JDLesco does not know it all but give them a call and they can give you a good recomendation on what to get for the area your in. Also be sure to know the grass typeand the weed type your trying to kill so you can get something that will give you good results.

    I think this was just their way of asking if he was licensed.

    Sorry for the double post, when I sent it the first time it said the server was busy, so I hit refresh
