How long do I have to wait...

5 posts in this topic

I am going to put some spray weed killer (ortho weed be gone plus crab grass).

I will put it down on Friday.

My question is how long I need to wait before I put a general fertilizer down?

I noticed it looks like it may rain a few days next week (assuming they are correct wink and I thought the day before (monday) would be a good day to put down the fertilizer so it can soak in well without me having to water a lot.

Is this too much on my lawn in a short time?

You can put your granular fertilizer down the same time you spot spray your weeds.

The important thing is to leave your grass grow for 4-6 days before spraying the weed killer to have the weeds more exposed so they soak up more of the herbicide. Then wait 24-48 hours to mow after spraying. The fertilizer will take effect eventually when it rains with out interfering with the spray.

Thanks for the help...

It is more than just a spot spray...it is a complete coverage spray that you spray on your entire lawn.

That may not even matter...but I just want to clarify.

Yea you are fine any time. The majority of the time we spray our customers lawns it is with a weed killer and liquid fertilizer mixed together, and a liquid fert. is much stronger and more quickly absorbed than a granular. Or in the summer time we often broadcast spray weed control and then do a granular fert at the same time......nothing to worry about.

    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice.
