“We use Dimension herbicide because it gives us more flexible crabgrass control. Crabgrass grows later in the season here. If you put certain products down too late, you can miss your window. With Dimension, I don’t have to worry about timing my applications. I know that it will control crabgrass early and later in the season—before and after the plants germinate. I get more longevity out of my applications and far fewer customer complaints as a result.”

“Stonewall is good for fescue because it has a 6-month effective rate and will help deter
Bermudagrass. Dimension is good for warm weather grasses such as St. Augustinegrass and Bermudagrass. Make sure you follow all regulations on the
containers and follow local rules and regs. We are stewards of the environment and we need to be responsible. Always do soil testing and use organic fertilizer when at all possible.”
