I'm complaining but it's actually not as bad as I had thought considering this year I went with one pre-emergent treatment at the start of March!
I've found that using a weedwacker will give crabgrass a place to start growing and then it spreads from there. The key is not to disturb the soil. It has taken over my neighbor's yard and the backyard is 100% crabgrass.

I've been looking for this stuff everywhere... Lowe's, HD, local nurseries, IFA, etc.. and nobody has it.

I've turned to using revive instead and it's been fine.

Always use two applications of Dimension...90 days apart.

Sorry to hear about the crabgrass.

Been really impressed with Lesco Transition Blend seed.

No, havenít seen a single drop.

Know what you mean about along the street, but it has been an odd summer. However, must have gotten the 2 Dimension applications timed just right.

Ok, so where's all the milorganite? I can't find any?

My grass is growing like crazy with all the rain and I figure I could toss down some milorganite and get some nice deep green early this year going into Sept. But there's none to be had!

Can't find any around my area either (22033). Oh well, September is around so it's time to apply synthetics for the winter anyway.

I know this is from a marketing guy, but I can't help but smile at him talking about "high-quality product" when he's talking about poo:

"working with other reclamation partners to determine if a similar high-quality product can be acquired" (from BM's link

You know...I thought the same thing when I read that and had a little chuckle myself.
