    I called lesco the other day and asked if there was any new chemicals for quack grass, because i have a yard full of it. Their response was try drive it should help.... I have never heard of that. Nor does it say on the label it treats it. So anyway I sprayed today a lawn with it. I will let you know...

    I just applied drive on about 15 of my lawns, many were over an acre.

    This is my first time using it and I didn't have the time to test the product before I used it.

    Can someone let me know what the results should be and how long they will take???

    I hope I didn't just waste $600 and $2500+ of my customers money!!!!!

    Thank You.!

    drive is usually used as a crabbgrass killer. You shouldnt have much crabbgrass right now though. Maybe. It will kill other weeds, but it is an expensive way of doing it.

    Drive will not touch quackgrass. Quackgrass is a cool season perrenial like bluegrass, that is why no herbicide has been developed to separate the two. Roundup is the only thing I know will kill quackgrass.
