Don't Buy it
By $159 on March 19, 2012
It hasn't yet prevented anything and didn't kill anything that was there...........don't buy this product.
This product does not kill anything that is currently there, because it is a pre-emergent. It will only prevent weed seeds from germinating. If something appears after using this product, then it was not applied soon enough and the weeds already germinated.

Dimension 2EW Herbicide
By C.r. on February 20, 2011
Dimension is an excellent pre-emergent herbicide. We have had no weeds since putting it down. I would recommend it for farmers that need ultimate weed control for roads, driveways, or other ultimate control areas. DoMyOwnPestControl.com has the best price on the net. I have found them to be excellent and the products you see are actually the products that arrive.

Dimension Good Product, Do My Own - Great retailer
By Mel on January 31, 2012
Do my own Pest control is great. Good advisors and quick service. I have used Dimension for several years as a commercial applicator. Works great. One caution is in areas where there is not as much sun. the turf in these areas is generally lest hardy. Dimension can damage this turf, so go lightly in those areas if you can. It's ability to kill the crab grass even after it has emerged (very small plants only) allows you to get away with later application. It seems that we get most of our heavy rains before April, so the early applications often seem to be a waste.

I applied Dimension mixed with Trimec Classic a little later in the spring than I had wanted. Prolonged windy conditions delayed the application. Crabgrass control over very young plants was as good as the directions specified and the Trimec knocked down all clover and broad leaf weeds. Now, a month after the application the lawn is practically weed free.

I have wrestled with a vigorous crabgrass invasion and 'Dimension' has exceeded all expectations in controlling this. I estimate a 98% eradication of any new crabgrass seedlings and am left with the best looking bare areas I could wish for. I believe two key steps made this so successful. The first is I made split applications with 8 oz/25 gal tank of water applied in early April (Mid-west), which was followed with a 0.3 inch rainfall. A second application four weeks later was followed with 1.1 inches of rain. When I use Dimension again next year I will dilute even further so more water is used in each application. In total I have treated approx two acres and gained excellent control of crabgrass. Roundup has taken care of those mechanical escapes.

Excellent Product for Preventing Crabgrass Emergence
By Chad on May 20, 2013
I purchased this product a few weeks ago in half gallon jug. My yard is about 18,000 square feet of grass. Had a big problem with crabgrass infestation every year. Through research, I discovered that crabgrass seeds germinate in the spring when soil temps reach about 50 degrees. I monitored soil temps via a local university agriculture website. When soil temps at 2 inches deep got near 50 degrees I applied Dimension. I measured out 3000 square foot areas and applied the product using a pump sprayer. I put about 5 teaspoons in a gallon of water. One gallon of water seemed to be the right amount to cover the 3000 square foot area. Turned on my sprinklers and made sure each area got a 1/2 inch of watering. I placed a 9x13 pan in each area and watered until the pan had 1/2 inch in it. Days later my crab grass areas are bare with beautiful green desirable grass surrounding. I plan to fertilize over Memorial Day weekend in order to promote desirable grass to spread to the bare areas. Remember this product prevents seed germination, so you must apply before crabgrass emerges and not after.

Dimension 2EW Herbicide
By Dr. on February 24, 2012
Good price and extremely fast shipping... I have used the product before so I expect good results but this is the first time I have purchased from DoMyOwnPestControl. The things I liked best was the fast and free shipping. Will do business with these folks again.

Dimension 2EW Herbicide
By Ted on April 12, 2011
Service and shipment were exactly as promised. Dimension has been applied. It is too early to appraise the results.
By Lee on September 24, 2013
I had poa annua growing wild in my over one acre of Bermuda. The estimates from the local pest companies were outrageous. I bought Dimension as my first purchase early 2013 and have bought numerous other products since all with great results. Product is terrific when used as pre emergent.
By Gil on November 13, 2013
Fast service , great price, Just applied product, will see what results are this winter.
Best lawn I've ever had.
By Dave on November 15, 2013
I used Dimension 2EW for the first time last year and the results were great. We have 2.5 acres and the crabgrass, henbit and sand burrs were getting out of control. (10-15% crabgrass in burmuda) I made one application in late February and my timing must have been good. Virtually no Henbit, or grass burrs, and only a few patches of crabgrass emerged. I'm trusting that another application this year will have it licked.

May 1, 2011 Pom asked:
QCan this product be used with Ortho Dial n Spray and at what dial setting per gallon of water?
How many oz., tsp, or tbls per gallon of water? This is to treat annual bluegrass and crabgrass. Thanks
AYou can use a hose end sprayer to apply this product, but we are not familiar with the Ortho model so we do not know what specifics to give you. As far as application rates, we wish it was that easy. Bluegrass and Crabgrass require slightly different treatments and also depend on where you live and what grass you have currently that you are trying keep them out of, which you did not state. Also, herbicides do not give a water amount. They only tell you how much of the product to apply over 1000 square feet. The amount of water is dependent on how ever much water it takes for you to walk 1000 square feet. Whether you place the amount of product per 1000 square feet in a gallon of water or 10 gallons of water, it does not matter, just as long as that amount of product is distributed over the 1000 square feet. Since you are treating two different types of grasses, we recommend calling the manufacturer since they are the experts on their own product and could probably give you a more definitive answer than we can. They should also be able to better help you with the settings on your hose end sprayer. The manufacturer is Dow Agro and you can reach them at 1-317-337-3000.
March 23, 2011 Mike asked:
QHow much Dimension 2EW would I need to cover two acres?
AYou will need .75 - 3.0 pints of Dimension 2EW per acre. The exact amount you will need will be based on what region you are located in and what program you choose. Please refer to page 5 of the product label for more specific information.
March 5, 2011 Jim asked:
QWhat is the ground coverage for the 1/2 gallon for use on crabgrass?
AYou will use .33 - .73 of an ounce of Dimension 2EW per 1,000 sq ft. The exact usage rate will depend on your location and the application program you choose. Please refer to pages 4-6 of the product label to find the exact usage rate for your needs.
May 1, 2011 Donny asked:
QOnce applied, how long after applying Dimension can we leave the pets outside on the lawn?
AAs soon as Dimension 2EW has dried on the lawn it is safe to allow pets back on the lawn. This depends on how hot it is, but most of the time 1 hour is plenty long enough for the solution to dry.
January 17, 2011 Pam asked:
QIs Dimension 2EW Herbicide safe to use on St. Augustine lawns? What is the coverage area?
Also, when is the appropriate time to apply in the central Texas area? We've ordered from you before, do you have any special discounts at this time? Thanks.
AYes, Dimension 2EW is safe to use on well established St. Augustine lawns. What season you need to begin applications and usage rate will depend on what you are treating. Pages 4 and 5 of the product label gives you the 3 different options for treatments programs. As for discounts, we do run periodic specials and coupons which we email to our customers that have signed up to receive coupons from us and we always offer a low price guarantee and free shipping.

Manny from Escondido, Ca asked:
QI planted Tall Fescue seed this last April (Late) and had nice looking yards in front and back.
However, the crabgrass and other weeds took over. I waited until the yard got established (28 days) to start spraying and killing! I used 2,4D and have been using Drive XLR8 to kill the crabgrass. Now I have about half a lawn left! I live in San Diego inland Climate 10 where it gets in the low 90s some summer days. Usually in the mid 80s. I want to overseed the tall fescue this fall (Fall is the best time to plant fescue and other cool season grass) but I want to apply a crabgrass pre emergent. When would you suggest I treat for crabgrass and plant my seed? I plan on seeding mid to late October. Thanx for your help!

Kevin from Goldsboro, Nc asked:
QFor Mid-Atlantic Region (NC), what is the best time of year to spray for Annual Bluegrass with Dimension 2EW?
A For pre-emergent control of Annual Bluegrass you will normally treat 2-3 times to fully control it throughout the year. For Southern zones like NC, you would do a fall application by Oct 1st and for spring you would do a second application between February and March 15th at the latest. Dimension will only control Annual Bluegrass as a pre-emergent so you will need to make sure the area is free of the currently growing vegetation. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Becky from Ardmore, Ok asked:
QHow many times will the 1/2 gallon jug cover a 3/4 acre lot?
How many times will the 1/2 gallon jug cover a 3/4 acre lot?
How many times the product will cover that area will depend on what region of the country you live in, what turf you are spraying on, and what weeds you are trying to control. For example: If you are in the South: AL, AR, GA, LA, MS, NC, NM, OK, SC, TN, TX-but not in the regions right on the coast, you would use 1.5 pints per acre, which breaks down to roughly .55 ounces per 1000 sq/ft. You will typically mix this .55 ounces in no less than 2 gallons of water per 1000 sq/ft. At this rate, the 1/2 gallon jug of Dimension would cover 3/4 of an acre almost 4 times as you would be using 16.5 ounces per 33 thousand square feet. You can refer to page 5 of the Dimension Product Label for specific usage instructions.

Doug from Olive Branch, Ms asked:
QI am going to plug my lawn with Zoysia grass. What do you recommend as a pre-emergent for grass and weeds?
I found products to spray on after plugging but I have to wait at least a month. Do you have anything to spray on before I plug?
We checked with several industry experts and they all came back wiht the same answer "there is not anything labeled for residential use that can be used prior to plugging or sodding for pre-emergent control". We are sorry we could not be of more help!

Kevin from Prattville Al asked:
QIs Dimension 2EW Herbicide safe to use on common Bermuda grass?

Peter from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma asked:
QWhich pre emergent is best for nutsedge.
Every year i have problem with nutsedge. Can you recommend a good pre emergent herbicide.
A As far as we know, there are no products that exist that control nutsedge as a pre-emergent. The Dimension is one of our best pre-emergents for crabgrass and other broadleaf weeds but will not work for your needs. You would need to use a post emergent product like Sedgehammer to control the nutsedge once it has come up.

Matt from Edison Nj asked:
QCan I apply Dimension and Spectracide or other 2,4-d product simultaneously?
I would traditionally apply Spectracide Weed Stop for my spring weeds. Can I apply Dimension 2EW at the same time, possibly even mixed? I don't believe Dimension runs a risk of stressing the lawn, but I wasn't sure if this would be too much.
We are unfamiliar with the Spectracide product so we are not sure if this application would be okay. We recommend contacting the Dimension manufacturer directly for more information. You can reach Dow by calling 800-992-5994.

Gary from Newton, North Carolina asked:
QIs there any benefit to alternating Barricade and Dimensions2EW every other month in North Carolina foothills?
We have had much difficulty controlling crabgrass and dallis grass. I understand they are different. Just looking for the best combination of pre-emergents.
A Barricade and Dimension are actually in the same class of herbicides which means they work with the same mode of action and there would be no benefit to switching between them. We would recommend Barricade because it lasts longer and you will get great control with just Barricade. If you have current weeds (though you should be ahead of the game at this date) try Monument, it will do a great job.
