    Check out there website they have labels on all their products. I was sceptically going in but I now see that it truly does work (at least up to now).
    Thanks Mark for straightening the Fedex thing out. Everyone was very helpful and I am please with the product, I just get a little impatient.:clapping:

    go to the order page and click on the catalog.
    It shows all the ingredients for each product on the labels in the pdf file.

    Ok - spot spraying works if you just have a few weeds - just make sure the surrounding turf has a feeding - to avoid the green spots. The weed control will double with an application of powdered lime on the still wet turf. Backpacks have their use, but I could never get an even enough coverage. Use the gun and tip that Mark recommends, forget the chemlawn gun - needs the fine spray.

    Just got the lawnjet gun in today. I can see why it's recommended now. I was getting good control on larger broadleaf weeds (plantain, dandy's, etc) but was struggling with clover and oxalis. This gun should do the trick.

    Say goodbye to the Lesco gun experiments!

    Here are pics. The pictures were taken 2 weeks apart. As you can see the clover was really knocked back. The birds eye view was taken from a deck and you can see where I sprayed the clover patch and were I did not. I know the white lines gives it away but you can see what I mean.

    Results looked great. Although $2.00 - $3.00 per k is pretty expensive. Keep us posted though, gotta love those pics. Good work.
