    I have been planning on getting most of my herbicides and fertilizers from Lesco this year. Their closest location is a about 45-50 minutes away. Just out of curiosity - I went into the local Southern States / Farmers Service last week to see what they offered. Turns out - I can get my pre-em (dimension), manage, drive 75, msma, and a few others I will be using for less than I was quoted from Lesco this year. SS is less than 10 minutes away. Anyone had dealings with them and if so, are they reliable?timely? How is their lawn fert?
    Thanks for any input.

    I have a SS in my area and have used some of their products. The local SS generally carries most of the Trimec products, or can get them for you. Their Southern Choice turf seed (turf type fescue) has been one of the better fescus in the NTEP rankings in years past.
