    What granular broadleaf herbicides is everybody using? Do they have limitations? Are they still kind of dusty? Thinking of switching back, what do you think?

    granular has a tendency to go 'off target' around flowerbeds and such, could be a problem. also granular is tough to keep 'on target', I'd stick with liquid broadleaf herbicides.

    Granular broadleaf is for the birds. Only way to get real control is through liquid. Problem with granular is that you're not getting any herbicide intake without dew or moisture on the surface, storing product, worrying about rain, etc.. With liquid apps like Confront, along with a sticker they are pretty rainfast within 1-2 hours.
