Freehand contains pendimethalin. Not really a good idea to apply on plugged lawns. The pendimethalin will cause the stolons to float on the soil rather than tack down and take root. The idea of using a preemergent to kill seeds before attempting establishment is something I have tried. EPTC(Eptam) was good for this due to its effect on nutsedge and grasses.

I have used Celsius and Dismiss on recently plugged areas without that effect. Simazine or Atrazine is also free from that effect, but it may be hard to use in Florida.
