    Super Trimec will cover most broadleaf weeds- use a sticker if rain is in the forecast.

    any three way weed control will work, we buy from Lesco.

    My first round I went with Momentum from Lesco and didn't get the results I was looking for. I tried Three-Way yesterday and will see how this works.

    I've had good luck with both Millennium Ultra and Speedzone. The Speedzone is a quick killer and it doesn't smell nearly as bad as the Millennium Ultra.
    I have cool season grasses, KY blue, Fescues and rye. I use a sticker all the time and find it helps keep it on the tough to kills like violets.

    Thanks

    Lesco's Spreader-Sticker is the name. I think it lists for ~$26/gallon.
