Your Lawn Product Options for April

April 3, 2017

For southern Lawns your option is to feed with Scotts Turf Builder OR apply a Weed & Feed designed for your type of lawn:

Scotts Bonus S Southern Weed & Feed – use on St. Augustinegrass (including Floratam).  Apply to a dry lawn and water after spreading.  (Note:  This product can also be used on Zoysia and Centipedegrass lawns, however Turf Builder Weed & Feed may be a better option for these lawns depending on the weeds you are trying to kill.)

Scotts Turf Builder Weed & Feed – use on all Southern Lawns except St. Augustinegrass.   Apply to a moist lawn and do not water for 24 hours after spreading.

For northern lawns your option is to feed your lawn with Turf Builder OR apply a lawn food plus crabgrass preventer:

Scotts Turf Builder Halts Crabgrass Preventer does two jobs at one time: feeding and preventing new weeds from seed. Be sure to water your lawn after you spread this product.

Scotts EZ Seed for lawns with bare spots. Remember to NOT spread Turf Builder Halts in areas you plan on seeding. If you have large areas to seed and you need to prevent crabgrass, you should use Scotts Turf Builder Starter Lawn Food for New Grass Plus Weed Preventer to stop crabgrass without stopping your new grass seed from growing.

(Northern lawn note:  This first feeding will help your lawn recover and fill in after our tough winter. Your lawn will now be all set until you do your next feeding in about 6 weeks which will either be Scotts Turf Builder or Scotts Turf Builder Weed & Feed.)

You should apply your crabgrass Preventer by the time forsythia bushes in your neighborhood have stopped blooming and lost their flowers, or if you do not have forsythia, by the time you see lilacs in bloom, or before you start seeing dandelion puffballs.

    do you spray before mowing or after

    • Hi Cindy and Craig Tunheim
      The idea is to allow the spray to absorb thru the weed leaves to kill the plant roots and all. So you should either hold off mowing for a day or two after spraying so you do not mow the recently sprayed leaves before the spray enters the system OR if you spray after wait a day or two after mowing for ample new leaves to grow to provide more surface area to spray.
