I have had a soil test and my ag extesion agent told me thats the fert i needed.
That is the answer for everything! That are mowing height!
If you want my opinion, the answer is never.
Weed and feed products are not the best way to go. If you need a week killer, get a stand alone product. If you need fertilizer, get a stand alone product.
Actually, the problem with weed and feed is that it really is not timed correctly.
The best way to kill weeds is when they are actively growing. To do that, you want to fertilize the lawn days or a week before you apply weed killer. Weed & Feed tries to kill the weed before it has been able to absorb much of the fertilizer.
If you ask me, weed & feed is a great marketing ploy for the big lawn care companies. But it is not the best way to handle weeds in your lawn.
this is 100% accurate. Id the weed and spot spray it if it is still growing.
Not to hijack but what if timing would be good for both, would the control be that bad with W&F. I have a 1 acre lot that has a lot of plantain and clover that is growing like crazy and starting to overun things. I was thinking to apply a weed and feed because I need a fertilizer treatment now and weed killer. I have a 2 gallon pump sprayer or I could get the ortho hose end and apply Trimec with that. The problem is, the pump, I am familiar with but it would take forever, the hose end, I am not familiar with as far as walking speed so it could be futile. I think for some homeowners like myself, it is convenience and available application equipment. Once this is under control, it will be spot treatments but this initial overrun, could I still get good control?
I agree but I stated before the guy wants gran, not liq...So weed/feed is the best bet. Plus timing is the thing that makes it work.
Clover use Momentum FX2 in gran form. You will need severla bags but in your case it is quicker and easier to get rid of the clower and plantain.
Liquid is less money per ai, but you will be there forever with a 2 gal sprayer.
Thanks for the info, you saved me a boatload of backpain.
Here is what Momentum FX2 (gran form) did in 6 days. Pretty easy to tell what was treat and not......
u buy momentem at?
