New Lawn - Knowledgebase Question

Burlington, KY
Question by melissadue

Hello. I just moved in to a new house where the yard was seeded in June. The grass is filling in, but still spotty. I also have some weeds already! Is it too early to use some sort of weed and feed on the lawn?

It is too soon to use a weed and feed product. New lawns need to grow for several months and be well established before applying herbicide. Read and carefully follow all of the label directions on any product you use. You can spot treat perennial weeds with an herbicide as well as reseed or overseed this September.
