    Hello, when using the Green Guardian how soon can you apply it on newly planted immature turf?? 80/20 rye-bluegrass mix not being mowed yet. Thanks

    Wait until the lawn has been mowed once. Then possibly apply at 1/2 rate on the first application followed up with a second application in about 2 weeks at near full rate depending upon how the turf is watered, mowed, temperatures and response to prior treatment.

    If you spray first you can seed within minutes. The other way around and major problems will occur. Once the lawn is seeded do not apply for at least 2 weeks and then only apply at 1/2 rate.

    Once the seed has been mowed once you can go back to full rates as long as the temperatures are under 85.
