    Let me say I believe in a once a year Spring blanket spray on thinner lawns with a low rate broad leaf herbicide. This is to catch those broad leaf weeds before they get started. On my thick lawns I use post emerge only as needed. Depending on the lawn it might take two years to get it thick enough not to blanket spray in Spring.

    I don't support blanket applications under most circumstances. There are of course exceptions.

    ....... and I think you meant catch the weeds before they get established ... not started.

    I forget Wisconsin is almost part of Canada and has the same Ice Box climate. My high temp today was 83 while the low was 67. Our Crab Grass is growing great.

    I read that as started growing (i.e. before germination).

    :laugh: I could be a flunky on light duty for the winter months, but I wouldn't be able to even just supervise, in the summer months.

    The last time I was in Florida during summertime all we could do was hang around in air-conditioned strip clubs. My funny friends didn't realize there was AC in other establishments as well.
