Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Warning Devil is in the fine print - it says NOT to apply more than once a year, yet only protects for 4 months - apply in Spring OR Fall, not both. September 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by No crabgrass so far Been using this for past 3 years, pretty good since I don't find crabgrass in my lawn up to this point. I do still see weeds, broadleaf, others, though none of the other brands I've used have been effective at getting rid of those. Unfortunate, as I now have to use the spray kind, kill-all-vegetation like Spectra, which works great except it requires spot-application. April 2, 2013
