I overseeded my tall fescue grass about 2.5 weeks after I applied Weed b gone Max. I spot sprayed a lot of weeds. My question is will my grass germinate? I have heard conflicting stories on how long you should wait. Some say 14 days, some say 4 weeks? Just worried that all my watering the last 5 days will go to waste..

I also dethatched - and aerated right before I overseeded. Would that break the "crabgrass preventer barrier?

I am more concerned with my new grass seed. Will it germinate?

You could have a lil less germination..or at least a delayed germination. How long has the seed been down?

Seed has been done for 5 days. I hit it with Weed B Gone Max about 2 - 2.5 weeks before I seeded.

I was worried because it was the "Crab Grass Preventer Weed B Gone Max". So you think I will be ok?

There is no PREVENTER in it only a killer as far as I know. The quinlorac has properties that kill and possibly prevent but its not enough active ingredient to do either if you ask me..Youll be fine. You might want to re slit seed in 4 weeks again and youll be good to go.

you should be fine. I have tested similar products and seed was good after about 3 days wait time.

What about weed b gon pro? Ihave a lawn that Scotts did about a week ago. They say they sprayed the whole thing. How soon do you think seeding is possible?
