I reseeded my entire yard Sept.7,2009 and dispite of the cold weather, my grass have grown 2 inchees. However, there are weeds (small clovers) gorwing as well. Can I use a weed-n-feed on my yard now or what should I do to eliminate the weeds?

Thank You

An application of weed and feed on your new lawn can kill it before it even gets established so avoid the use of these types of products, at least until next year. Although it can be labor intensive, hand picking the weeds is your best approach for a new lawn. Next spring you can apply a pre emergent herbicide to keep weeds from sprouting. Good luck with your lawn!
