    You may come out cheaper, and you will definately get a much better job done if you hire a professional. Their application equipment will be much better than a water hose. I am sure some of the members here are in you area. Do you even have enough hose to reach across two acres?

    If you do that on your lawn, it may be dead.

    Well, you may want to measure or have someone measure the turf areas then.

    I get that from walk up estimates all the time. "My lot is 120x300 and the property your on is a double lot." Response: "Yes, I know, but you have a house, pool, shed and swingset, so I still have to measure the TURF areas I will be treating." "Why? I just told you how big it is."

    You can buy a gallon of concetrated herbicide for 20-30 bucks usually will cover 2 acres. Get a backpack or hand can, couple cold beers walk the lawn and spot spray.
