    Snapshot works best is one of the more expensive options though. I tend to use treflan with 2 apps during the season.

    Is there really a cheap option? nothing I know of that is as effective.
    I'm all ears if there is a less expensive, yet equally effective alternative to snap shot or surflan.

    For my pine and mulch beds I use 0-0-8 with Stonewall (Barricade). I've never had a problem.

    0-0-7 would do also. Check the lable for ornamental listings.

    Hope this helps.

    Surflan always works well for me. The cost is not that bad if you get no name surflan. roughly 50 bucks for 32 oz and it goes along ways. Lasts right around 6-8 months and saves a ton of time. I charge 15-30 an ounce.
