For post emergent crabgrass, any difference between Ortho Weed B Gon MAX Plus Crabgrass and Bayer Advanced All-in-One Lawn Weed and Crabgrass?

Are both of these really too weak to treat crabgrass and best to go with Gordon Trimec Plus Crabgrass Kill Control?

Thanks! Do you find one application to be sufficient?

My husband does one application every March.


Sorry, but I just reread your original post. We always do it pre emergent!

No problem, I'm going with Ortho Weed-B-Gon as it seems the stronger of the two.

I've used both Ortho and Bayer but the Ortho is more available (and on sale at times). I have some Ortho WeedBGon Crabgrass that I'm spraying now on whatever weeds survived the weed and feed last month, plus to knock back crabgrass or grassy weeds. It usually takes several applications to kill crabgrass (or whatever grassy weed I've got).

BTW I used Scott's Turfbuilder on my front lawn and Sta-Green weed and feed on the back yard as a test. I usually use the Scott's so I know what to expect. I'll let you know how the Sta-Green works.

As soon as the pre-emerge wears off (mid-June for me), I'll pull weeds by hand and reseed where needed, then apply some fertilizer (maybe Ironite to be ready for the 4th of July. Really my lawn won't be in great shape until mid-July.

Picked up a gallon size container with the powered wand of Ortho Weed B Gon. Works great so far, very economical for the size and easy to use.

Look forward to hearing what you think of Sta-Green.

Have you used Lesco?

I just this evening put down another application of pre-emerge to carry it through summer.

Turf type fescue.

Look for the Southern Lawn version of Ortho Weed B Gon.
