Default Weed And Feed Recommendation

I have 2 clients that would like a weed and feed treatment. They would like it done ASAP. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am relatively new to this. They are both in the same upscale neighborhood so this could lead to a LOT more jobs if done right. I'd prefer something organic but will take all suggestions. I know Andy and a few others swear by Aerify Plus etc and that line of products. I would LOVE to try them but these clients want stuff done next week so I need some recommendations ASAP.

Thanks a lot

I have tried to order them online from the site they have mentioned, but it won't let me "check out". So for right now I need a more readily available, local recommendation.

Mature's Magic, Aerify, 16-4-8 for sure. With graduations and weddings in the near future, I'd get Insect Guard. Last spring and summer I got about 30 orders not counting 2 golf courses.

If your going to apply pesticides for money make sure you are licensed and certified or you could be fined !

You don't need to be licensed for organic products.
