    Just got a contract for some cemetaries and will be using Lesco Products. Any one ever had any trouble with staining on broze markers.

    I know from experience that granular products with SCU can cause pitting on bronze markers, and iron can stain concrete ones. We service a large cemetery and use a liquid weed and feed in the parts with bronze markers just to avoid any problems. It would be wise to do a test on a few markers of different ages and/or manufacturers before you spread a granular product to be on the safe side.
