The price per application from my local Lawn Service has risen to $240 for my 1.25 acre lawn. Does it make sense for me to apply it myself. Buying from Home Depot Or Lowes will prove to be close to the same price without the guarantee I get from my Service. What can I buy for fert and crabgrass control that I can apply myself and where can I get it in central Jersey? Do I go the liquid or granular route?
