    First off I do not do this for a living or do I get paid to do it. I put down crabgrass preventer with halts. But not thinking straight I plan on doing some seeding too. I am doing this work at my Mom's. What can I do? I was planning on tilling the areas that I was going to seed. Am I screwed or can I neutralize this in the areas I want to seed in. Again, this is on my Mom's property, and this is why I don't fertilize my customers. Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

    if you till or rake the area's that your going to seed you will be ok, that will break up the pre-m barrier.

    Thank you. I was going to let it sit a week and then do the tilling. Or should I till now before it settles.

    An activated charcoal application will deactivate the herbicide. However, a disruption of the barrier, by tilling, should work too. :waving:
