Unfamiliar fertilizer question

Do to our severely cold winter this year in the south, the broadleaf weeds are pretty bad this year. I normally fertilize with just a good southern grass fertilizer. This year I just purchased 20 bags of Hi-Yield Weed and Feed which combines a Trimec complex of three post-emergent herbicides with a 15-0-10 lawn fertilizer for effective broadleaf weed control while nurturing your lawn. For use in Bahia, Bermuda, Bentgrass, Bluegrass, Centipede, Fescue, Perennial Ryegrass, St aug and Zoysia, Weed and Feed controls Chickweed, Plantain, Henbit, Spurge, Dandelion, and dozens more. The directions say

Apply Weed and Feed to moist lawn using a rotary spreader and do not water in until an additional 48 hrs. I'm a little nervous about burn. I have always watered in my fertilizer or put out right before a good rain. Any thought or opinions?

Do what the label says It will be fine if you water you will wash of the weed killer and get no results

The grass needs to be wet so the granular weed control can stick and dissolve on the leaf

You will not burn the grass--IF--you apply it evenly and use the correct amount. And if the temperature is below 85.
Apply early in the morning so the weed control particles stick to the weeds.
Hi-Yield is a retail product. Keep in mind the weed control on the label is optimistic. The chance that it would control spurge is remote even under ideal conditions. Don't allow any weed control particles to fly into your bushes or flowers.

For best results, hire a licensed pro with the proper spray equipment. Liquid weed control is much more effective. Maybe you need a backpack sprayer.
