I have about 1 3/4 acres that in the past two years have been sprayed for weeds at a cost of $220 Can/year. The spray seemed to do a good job, but with two small kids, it's hard keeping them off the grass for 2-3 days, and with some people against spraying, it seems like the thing to do. I guess my question is do granular weed control products work as well or better than sprays? Are there any major pros/cons with the two? The granular seems a bit more kid friendly to me. One thing I did find about the weed spray was when it was applied, we had an overly dry summer and I found the grass seemed to suffer a bit after it was sprayed.......it might be a coincidence too but............ I have a tractor and tow-behind spin spreader to apply the granular with as well.
