So on the advice of many, I finally went to my local SiteOne today to discuss fertilization and weed control program. In a nutshell they recommended a 5 step granular program, crabgrass control in early spring, weed and feed in late spring, fert and grub control in June, fertilizer in fall and winter fertilizer in November (this is for cool season grass, Ohio). I discussed liquid pre-emergents and post emergents, and he agreed they worked well, even better than granular, but he still was persistent on the granular. So to ease my mind, I visited another supplier/dealer after SiteOne and they recommended almost the same plan, with granular. Am I to believe that granular is the way to go? Everything thing I've read says liquid weed control works better than granular in most cases. Anyone willing to provide some input?
