Healthy lawn and ornamental beds

The best way to keep your turf crabgrass-free this season is by preventing its emergence in the spring. Prevent this troublesome weed with a preemergence herbicide application in early spring. Choosing a preemergence herbicide that also provides early postemergence control, such as Dimension® specialty herbicide, can offer additional value through application flexibility and save you money, all while giving you time for more. 

Dimension specialty herbicide, with its excellent preemergence and early postemergence control of crabgrass, puts you in charge of your lawn’s health. It’s not just about crabgrass; this powerful herbicide controls more than 45 other grassy and broadleaf weeds. Feel empowered knowing you have the upper hand against these pesky invaders.

Crabgrass commonly germinates when soil temperatures are consistently 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit at a soil depth of approximately 2 inches. Depending on the region and seasonal temperatures, crabgrass may begin germinating as early as February through May and continue growing through August.  

For most preemergence herbicides, the application must happen before germination, allowing the herbicide to form a barrier on the soil surface before the crabgrass germinates in the soil. However, Dimension specialty herbicide offers effective preemergence and early postemergence crabgrass control up to the one-tiller stage, where cool-season grasses predominate, and up to the two- to five-tiller stage, where warm-season grasses predominate, giving you a longer application window than any other preemergence crabgrass herbicide with effective control. 

The flexibility in the application window of Dimension specialty herbicide gives you the assurance that you will be crabgrass-free all season long. 

Stain-free savings

Many preemergence herbicides can stain hard surfaces, such as light-colored or white concrete, leading to extra cleanup and potential customer complaints. But with Dimension specialty herbicide, you don’t have to worry. It’s designed to be stain-free, so it won’t leave unsightly marks on concrete, equipment or clothing. This means less cleanup for you and more satisfaction for your customers.  

Give yourself time for more with Dimension specialty herbicide, which offers a worry-free, stain-free application that reduces the cleanup needed following each application. Not to mention reducing the budget needed to purchase detergents and other cleaning materials, an expense that often eats into the bottom-line profit. 

The nonstaining formulation of Dimension specialty herbicide also means you can spend less time on one of your least favorite tasks: enduring those long customer complaint calls.  

When you spend less time and money cleaning up stains and fielding customer complaints, you can spend more time completing additional applications, growing your business or even knocking something off your bucket list. 

Problem-free turf all season long

To be crabgrass-free and stain-free are only two of the many ways Dimension specialty herbicide makes applications worry-free. 

Dimension specialty herbicide offers the flexibility of a wider application window – two to eight weeks longer than other preemergence herbicides – giving you more time to complete applications within the season. With extra time to apply, Dimension specialty herbicide also can help reduce callbacks and minimize customer complaints, greatly saving you time, money and worry. Applicators can confidently use Dimension specialty herbicide from early to midseason without worrying about switching products after crabgrass has germinated. 

Dimension specialty herbicide provides added application flexibility by allowing you to choose the best formulation for your operation. Choose from liquid, granular, wettable powder or on-fertilizer and use it according to label directions for your specific region of the country and program conditions. 

Providing more than crabgrass control, Dimension specialty herbicide preemergently controls more than 45 other grassy and broadleaf weeds, such as bittercress, spurges, oxalis, chickweed, Poa annua and goosegrass, which are commonly found in turf and ornamental landscapes. It offers exceptional turf and ornamental safety on both established cool- and warm-season turfgrasses, as well as more than 440 ornamental plants. The broad label enables more confidence that the weeds, not desirable plants, are controlled, creating problem-free turf and landscape. 

Dimension specialty herbicide is also a great tank-mix partner and can be tank-mixed with Defendor® specialty herbicide and Gallery® specialty herbicide, or other pre- and post-herbicides for an even broader weed control spectrum. Please refer to the label for information on the other products compatible for tank-mixing with Dimension specialty herbicide. 

Dimension specialty herbicide is an excellent choice for sensitive sites such as schools, parks and wildlife habitats.  

Crabgrass-free, stain-free and problem-free

From the first application to the last, Dimension specialty herbicide keeps turf crabgrass-free, stain-free and problem-free all season long. 

Not only does Dimension specialty herbicide save you money and labor while giving you time for more, but it also gives you a financial advantage and added flexibility. Learn more about Dimension specialty herbicide.
