    Ok guys here it goes.
    WE service an industrial park in the area with the usual lawn ,trees, beds ect. The winter here was pretty hard and the plow damage from the plow guy was extensive(NOT ME). Some was just salt damage though. The problem is that we have to repair the lawns by using topsoil, seed,ect. in many areas. But at the same time next week we have to put down round one of fertilizer with Dimension around those patch ares. This is a problem for obvious reasons. What would you do? I know this is a problem up here where I live. Thanx for the imput.

    Put the dimension down first, then cover areas with topsoil and seed. Have done this and seed still germinates.

    When you read the label of the Dimension you see that it creates a "barrier" when applied. Once the soil is disturbed, the barrier is destroyed & the Dimension no longer works. So you can then do the patch work & use starter fertilizer with Tupersan pre-emergent herbicide for those new areas.
