Spraying a new lawn

6 posts in this topic

When can I spray a new lawn? I have mowed it about 4-5 times already. Just want to spray for braodleaf. Will the trimac be a good one to use?

you are safe to spray since you cut it 4 times---make sure your dose is right and trimac will be fine for broad-leave weeds

Spray in the morning before the temps get into the 80's. Most of that broad leaf stuff says not to apply with high temps and /or humidity. The evaporation factor might kill adjacent plants. Not to mention that it is harder on the grass in the hot weather.

Read your label on the Trimec.

MuleShack is right, watch the temps.

This weekend it looks like it's going to hover right around the upper 70's so you should be okay.

If you can wait another 60 days, it'll be even better.

If you don't mind doing it twice, do it now, and then do it again right after your first hard freeze, you should be weed free next year if you do it right.

I just did a new lawn on 7/2 that had been mowed 5 times, I've got a good kill going, plus I put fertilizer down with it and bumped the watering up an extra 5 minutes per zone, it's looking good.

I hand-picked weeds and waited until the second year to apply any chemicals. My grass is so thick you can't see dirt.
