    spray the weeds now, wait 2-3 weeks then aerate, fertilize and seed.

    Trimec states wait 3-4 weeks... I’m Ok with waiting 2 weeks but 3-4 from today is Very late to seed in the NE I’m in Allentown PA

    Has anyone used any other chemicals that allow seeding sooner?

    Has anyone used Trimec Plus and seeded 2 weeks later? What were the results??? Thanks

    What about Drive? It's expensive, but allows reseeding sooner, so it may be a good trade off. Something to consider anyway.

    Talked to lesco about it and it looks like that will be the way to go.

    Any other places to order it?
