This info was a lot harder to find that I thought it would be, and I'm not sure that it will be of much help to you. It appears that they have several custom-made formulations made by NuFarm Ltd. At best, all I can find are MSDS for TruPower Selective Herbicide, plus the same name with either a 2 or a 3 after it. They are probably all mixtures of common weed killers.
The pre-emergent weed killer is Syngenta Barricade 4FL Herbicide. You can actually buy this online at Amazon and Sears among other places, but a gallon will cost you between $200 to over $300.

Thanks Fluffy but amazon has just 1 review on this product which is a terrible one too. Do you have any personal reviews or are you basing it off the online facts? I would hate to spend $300 on something and not have it work!

Vinegar. Just google "vinegar to kill weeds".
My son had asked when they bought their home for non toxic weed killers. (the yard had been left neglected for years...only weeds) He didn't want to harm his dog, himself or the environment. It takes a few rounds spaying/painting on. I also had him keep adding grass seed with a bit of peat moss & manure...the grass has won the war and choked out all the weeds:) His biggest expense was probably the water.

I was just going to suggest vinegar as it's what I've heard of before but never tried. My yard is so full of weeds now that I'll be testing it out right along you! Plus all the chemicals run off into the sewer system which leaks into local water sources (YUCK!) while this will be safe.

Vinegar only kills the leaf of a weed not the roots. Plus it kills grass and will make your lawn bed too acidic for future plantings. You really dont want to use a weed and feed either as youre putting fertilizer on your lawn for the weeds that didnt succomb to the first treatment. Use a weed b gone type killer without the FEED part. Ortho or Bayer both make a good product. Most of them otc use 2,4-D and will have the same results. But you need to keep your lawn at the correct height for the type grass you have as they all have different characteristics and grow at better heights. Water less often as well. But definately not vinegar or salt, they will ruin your soil in the long run.

Thanks eveyone! All the above comments are quite helpful! Going to research a bit more on each and every suggestion to determine what is the best options. Also i have started pulling some of the really nasty weeds by the uproot weed and root remover maually. Someone told me that it takes time but that might be a good long term solution...
