    i love threads like this where each guy is using something different. :)

    i wonder how may posts before someone uses the same thing?

    heres another different one, I use alot of PRE-M. Alot of people think it is harsh on plant but I have never had any issues. and its cheap.

    There is a reason for max application rates, and that's soil toxicity. Nothing to do with the plants, but for all wildlife and pets around homes.

    I use most of the ones mentioned except for Pre M and I use Ronstar Flo. Knowing what target weeds and which plants may be treated safely with each is another story. For most ornamental areas not planted with annuals, I like Dimension + Gallery. Yes, this is expensive. But not as expensive as a control failure.

    Just curious how much you are paying, we use Dimension 2EW and Gallery 75DF.
