    Most here do not use weed and feed most will do fertilizer and weed control as two seperate applications. With broadleaf control being liquid. If I use weed and feed then it is Momentum

    Cod is right. Use liquid for weeds--it works better. I use Lesco Eliminate. Strong. Water clear. No odor. Expensive.

    Hey Riggle, If I wanted to make the conversion to Liquid, where is the best place to find out what to use in place of Granual... my Lesco Dealer ?

    Sure your Lesco/JDL dealer is a good place to start. You need a sprayer of course. GAs electric, or a backpack sprayer for starters. Shop around, but if your Lesco dealer is any good he will be able to suggest products for weed control. They mainly sell: Threeway, Threeway Ester II, Momentum, and Eliminate. I don't like the ester anymore--it smells strong--customers get frightened--but it does not work much better than Threeway. I always use the maximum rate. Three way is a good choice to start with.
