If you can find "Drive75" from a dealer, it's one of the best one shot
applications for Bermuda. Most lawn companies dom't use it because of it's
cost, $90.00 per bottle.
As someone mentioned earlier, I am buying the larger spray unit for my own
private use. I figure if I buy the sprayer from Northern Tool, I can use the
best chemicals available and not wait on "The truck" either.
I bought a 14 gallon sprayer for small stuff around the yard like bushes and
it runs on a 12 volt battery booster all day. I have had it for seven years
and you can't break it.
: I have a newly sodded bermuda lawn about 4 months old, and I have crab
: grass and some other kind of weedy grass that looks like rescue all over
: the place. I also have brown spots throughout yard.
: I am a do-it-myselfer (aka cheap) and hate the idea of resorting to
: calling a service like TruGreen. I have sprayed the entire lawn with
: Ortho weed killer and Ortho crabgrass killer, but the stuff won't die.
: Does the Ortho stuff work, or is there something better I should be
: using? We have gotten a lot of rain this season in north Georgia, but I
: sprayed when ground was dry and it didn't rain for a couple of days
: after. I wonder if this stuff only works during a very dry season when
: the weeds need water.
: Anyway, does anyone know a good regemine to eliminate everything but the
: bermuda and cure the brown spots? What should I use for each and how
: often? Or would it just be cheaper to call a lawn service for a couple
: of summers until the yard gets established?
