I am Embarassed!! Are my patch jobs done for??

8 posts in this topic

I used some of the new Scotts EZ Seed patch product on several bare spots from last summer wear and tear. That stuff is spendy!!

Anyways, in my haste to get a couple of other projects done, I didn't pay attention to the fertilizer I used to go over the rest of the lawn with. After I put everything away, and got the other projects done, I realized I spread fertilizer with crabgrass preventer over everything!!

Are my patch jobs done for?? Yes, I went over the patches, as I fertilized the rest of the lawn. I figure they're done before they even got a chance, or does it have a chance?? I think I already know.

Classic example of "haste makes waste."

Most likely, yes.

Unless..... your crabgrass preventer isn't any good.

Crabgrass preventer works by not allowing any grass to germinate, so your new seed won't germinate either.

Pretty much what I figured.

On the bright side it is a Scotts product which doesn't work half the time so who knows......

You say you just applied a crabgrass preventive agent? If so, I'm wondering if you might be a little early. Typically we apply that on the golf course when the lilacs bloom. But, I too, am afraid you probably NRTSed out your seed application

Looks like Someone is looking out for me. My grass seed is growing great. Lesson learned, and won't be forgotten, but without all the "pain" I was expecting.

Sounds like you need a different pre-em. Your seed shouldn't have come up. You're gonna see the same germination of crabgrass this year as the grass that you put down

That's fine. I didn't mean to put down a "pre-em". I had a couple bags in the shed, and picked up (didn't pay attention) the wrong one, and went. I guess my seeds were supposed to come up. (dispite my stupidity). lol.
