    2-4-d is a broad leaf killer that won't kill grass. I am no expert in this. Trimec (however its spelled) is a general weed killer. The roundup won't kill trees or bushes with the right mix.

    I know we talked about this before. You really need some education before applying anything to someones turf. 2 4. D is a great herbicide. Properly applied at the correct rate. You can bake a lawn just as easily as the weeds. Never use roundup in the turf. Unless you like the minefield look. Not to mention you need a license for any of these products.

    I will show up every tuesday and mow the lawn for $40 while you sit inside and watch tv or whatever you like to do. It will be $65 if you want to come out and watch.
