Is this for fescue turf? Are you not overseeding?

I was thinking of doing Pre-em in the fall, but we have been hit with the grubs so bad right now, we are selling Dylox like it is penny candy! I think I will wait another year.

Let us know how it goes :)

Unless you plan or spraying broad leaf control in September/October; putting a pre-m down now will not do much for the weeds that are already germinating right now. From my experience, most weeds like chick weed, etc, germinate in late July through September but you do not see those weeds explode until the following year. Right now those weeds are very, very, small.
