BROADLEAF WEED CONTROL
How do I kill broadleaf weeds in my lawn?
The best defense against weeds is a dense, healthy lawn. Once the grass is thick and uniform, it is difficult for weeds to take hold and grow. Grass that is weak or thin allows weeds to establish and compete for available sunlight, water and nutrients.
Here’s a few easy tips that will help you get started:
• The best broadleaf weed control is obtained when weeds are young and actively growing.
• The ideal time to apply a weed control product is on a warm but not too hot day after a few days of rainfall or watering. Weed & Feed products need to be applied to wet or moist turf so that the particles can stick to the weeds leaves. It should also be at least two days after your last mowing.
• Finally, wait at least two days before mowing again so your yard can benefit fully from the application.
Fall is the perfect time to get a jump on next year’s weeds using a fall Weed & Feed will help your lawn look great next spring.

One preemergence application of Dithiopyr on cool-season turf gives you season-long control. Multiple applications should be used on warm-season turf. Dithiopyr gives you timing flexibility to use an early postemergence application to control newly emerged crabgrass as well. A split application may be used to lengthen your crabgrass control.
