The Q&A Archives: New sod

Question: I have had new sod put down in November. Now that it's Spring, weeds are growing faster than the grass. I have put a pre-emergent down in February and just fertalized the beginning of March. What can I do to get rid of the weeds? There are too many to pull.

Answer: I think you've done everything in terms of chemical control that you can. A thick lawn will crowd out most weeds so other than mowing the weeds down before they flower and set seeds, and digging out the largest of the weeds, you will just have to wait for the pre-emergent to do its work.
