They only had gallons when I went last week.

When I bought mine in March I got the last 18 oz bottle, and everything else was 1 gal. I prefer applying granular products as well but it comes at cost.

If you don't want to use Specticle because of the price then I would use simazine. I prefer simazine to barricade/dimension in the fall. I prefer barricade/dimension in the spring for its control of crabgrass.

re: granular pre-emergent
Does raking the yard in fall/winter affect the protection gained from Pre-emergents?


I would like to lay some down but with all of these Pines I always need to take a few times in bathe fall.

No. The herbicide is bound to the soil after it is watered in.

re: granular pre-emergent
My understanding of preemergents is that they go down in the soil and provide a chemical barrier to weeds. That is why they need to be watered in. Raking wouldn’t affect that unless you put it out on top of a bunch of pine needles then raked it all up before it went in the soil.
