What is your opinion on the best crabgrass prevention?

I guess what I'm asking is what do you guys use?

If you only plan on a single application of pre, go with Barricade up until crab begins to germinate. After germ, switch to Dimension. For split apps, Dimension,Pre-M, or Barricade will do, but be aware that Barricade can cause problems with fall seeding if applied too late in the spring, Pre-M will stain anything and everything, and Dimension is a bit pricey.
