    I would think it would not have enough carrier (water) and could do damage, but I spray with a hose, so I don't really know. Mix up a little and spray "Your" yard and see what happens.

    Well I will shake up the two and a half hug and then run the agitator in my toro to put it in suspension good. Hopefully that agitator is all that and a box of chips lol
