The Q&A Archives: Weed and Feed Problems

Question: Husband and i planted grass a couple of months ago and it is growing beautifully, we recently added some weed and feed and about more than half the grass died. what can we do.

Answer: As you have discovered, not all weed and feed products can be used on all types of turf so the product may have targeted your turfgrass as a weed rather than as a turfgrass. There's not much you can do after the herbicide has killed off your lawn other than to rake it out and reseed. Before applying a weed and feed product again, be sure to read the label to make sure it is safe to use on your type of turfgrass, and apply in amounts as recommended on the label. Best wishes with your lawn.
