    Is it safe to apply a winter fert and a pre-emergent at the same time? Also, is there a combination available?

    Just have to ask because of the nature of your question, are you licensed to be applying applications?

    I know it's a stupid question.

    No, I am not. I do know a little about to the subject, but not much. I worked for Tru-Green for a while as a tech before getting into the business full time. I will say this, thanks to Lesco for being so helpful - I walked in and sat down to ask the guy for some advice on the matter and he was 0 help. I'm studying for the test right now.

    edit- Here's what I had in mind. 5-10-31 for my winter fert, and a 5-10-20 as my pre-emerg.

    Hey Port City, don't know that doing both at same time would be very wise, that's quite a turf cocktail.
    Your winterizer numbers mix looks almost backward to me, but what do I know.

    Why don't you look on the Scott's web site, check out what their winterizer fert's mix is.

    You probably know something I don't. Like I said, thanks goes out to Lesco for all the help. I'll check that link out. Good thing I decided to come here and ask!

    Go with a 32-0-10 lesco on fescue and 5-10-31 on bermuda in the fall.

    I decided against the 5/31. Instead I went w/ 0-0-62 and left the rest alone. Thanks for tips, sorry if I caused any confusion.

    Port City you might be able to use this info at a later date.
    If memory serves me I believe the 5-10-20 that lesco has is a winterizer that uses a potassium carrier for the pre-m. Or at least you can purchase it that way,I have in the past. They may have it both ways. Tony
