I live in WV and spring is around the corner. I usually begin fertilizing now with fast acting fert with a high phosphorous level to help promote root growth. This year I was wanting to begin using sulfur coated fertilizer with a little higher N level to leach out in early spring for quick green up effect. I like to use weed and feed like scotts turf builder but rather something from lesco. MY question is this. If I put it down now in March even though weeds havent began to grow am i just wasting my time? Should I wait until around april when the grass begins grow to put down a weed and feed. Also I had bad infestation of crabgrass this past year and would like to use Dimension but not sure if I should put it down now in march or wait and put it down at the same time I apply the weed and feed. I have never used preM before but would like to give it a try this year to see if helps prevent crabgrass. Another ? I usually seed in early spring but I am affraid if i use preM i will have to wait till fall? What is your feelings about seeding in spring. I have done both this year and on the lawns that i seeded early spring seemed to do well until mid summer when the heat arrived and killed most of everything i planted. I may have just answered my own ? but I still would like to hear from the pros on when is the best time to seed and using Pre M with a weed and feed in early spring.
