Seeding after pre-emergent

A customer wants to seed some bare spots of their fescue lawn but they put out a pre emergent. If I bring in some top soil and turn it up with the existing soil a couple months after treatment will the pre emergent still greatly stagger the growth?

good question...same kinda situation here in ohio. We had a terrible growing season, drought which resulted in alot of weeds taking over where irrigation wasnt available. So this season we simply have to pre emerg early, as well as treat weed problems where grass was weakened.....so what is the answer for these customers who want to see overseeded lawns or spot repair?

There's only a few pre-emergents you can use and still overseed after the application but they're pricey and I have a few people that want to over seed but already put out a pre-emergent themselves without consulting with me about it.

+4. Got a customer who decided to tell me they wanted reseeding AFTER the pre-emergent was applied.

If these are full lawns your over seeding wait six weeks from that app if it spot seeding in small areas scratch up the surface add a little topsoil and you will be fine

Ohio State had a report on this sometime within the past couple years. If you do a search you might be able to find it. I don't remember the exact wording on their results. I'm on my phone posting or I would try to find it.
