Spring Pre M on fall overseeded lawn

I'm new to this GREAT site. Question is should I use a pre m this spring on customers lawns that were seeded in late October Early November or should I just treat the weeds & crabgrass later. Really appreciate your replies of your experiences with this scenario.

I will not use a Pre-Emergence on the lawns I seeded late in the fall, instead I will put down a round of starter fert. I already explained to these customers they would experience a degree of weed growth and that getting the turf established is the most important thing at this point (spring '06), I went on to explain to them if we get the turf up to a healthy stand we can use a Post-Emergence such as Drive to help bring weeds under control.

I would put pre emerg down or you will have weed infestation. They also make a preemerge for newly seeded lawns that will allow the seed to come up and stop weeds but name slips me at this time

best of luck whatever you do

not knowing the grass type you re-seeded with and your temp after the re-seed, i would say the seed that is going to make it is already germinated and go ahead and put the pre-m down. remember that the reason for pre-m is to reduce the comepition between the grass and the weed, so if you skip the pre-m, and start getting the weed infestation, the grass wont have a chance anyway. besides if you use post emergent control you time will be limited to hot temp of summer.
