    This is the first year for using Atrimmec. Got it from Lesco. Satisfied so far but I am using it on shrubs, we will see how it works.

    Why not? Good product.

    Primo is another good one, Regi-Max, if you can find it, is supposed to be good. Cutless G for shrubs.

    why not? becouse I am a landscape contractor who is paid a tidy sum for trimming. Now if I was a grounds care super trying to reduce maint. cost then I would use the products.

    Spray it on early and charge for it. Trim just a little later and charge for it again all while using less labor.
