scotts fall weed and feed and seeding

If you are unable to find Super Turf Builder Weed and Feed, Scotts Turf Builder Triple Action provides similar results. It kills weeds, prevents the new weeds from sprouting and feeds the grass.

Scotts Super Turf Builder with Plus 2 Weed Control, now called simply Super Turf Builder with Weed and Feed, contains more nitrogen and phosphorus than plain Turf Builder Weed and Feed, to provide faster green-up. Super Turf Builder contains 29 percent nitrogen, 2 percent phosphorus and 3 percent potassium, while plain Turf Builder contains 28 percent nitrogen, no phosphorus and 3 percent potassium. The active weed-killing ingredients are 2,4-D and mecoprop. Environmental health agencies in some areas list 2,4-D as a chemical known to cause cancer or birth defects, so use with caution.

Timing Is Everything

Before applying any fertilizer or herbicide product, put on a mask, safety goggles, gloves, long sleeves, long pants and closed toe shoes. After applying the weed and feed and cleaning the spreader, wash your clothing in hot water and detergent to remove any dust or residue.

Healthy Lawn Chemistry

A well-kept, healthy lawn should be plush, free of weeds and diseases, and as green as the neighbors’ envious hearts. Weed and feed products are designed to provide needed nutrients to the grass while poisoning weeds that want to steal the lawn’s food. Scotts Super Turf Builder with Plus 2 Weed Control works on several species of lawn grasses. While the company’s website recommends waiting four weeks to put down grass seed after applying the weed and feed, seeding first means waiting a different length of time before you use the product.

As for the weeds treat those by hand with something like Scott’s weed be gone even if you use the lawn attachment is far more effective than try to get those little granulars to stick to the weeds in order to kill them off.

I would like to apply WinterGuard Fall Weed & Feed around thanksgiving. Will it kill young grass? By the time, I should mow new grass at least three times.

Hope that helps and keep us posted.

We just put in a new lawn this past late spring/early summer. We added a lot of soil amendments (several dump loads of topsoil and sheep/crap). It came in fine. We watered it 3x p/day until established then switched to 2x every third day for a longer duration. Deep, infrequent watering encourages grass roots to go deeper for water, improving their ability to crowd out weeds. A lot of things can be done to help lawns establish without bags of chemicals.

I applied weed killer one month ago, and over seeding TODAY (quite some big bare spots). There is still a lot of weed, but I just spread grass seed anyway. I don’t care whatever amount of grass seed can germinate, and I expect quite some grass seed will germinate within one week (based on previous year’s experience, good grass seed, straw, Scotts Turf Builder Starter Food for New Grass, watering twice a day)
