Pets such as cats and dogs can reenter the treated area once the product has been watered in and allowed to dry. Keep in mind that this product should not be watered for at least 24 hours after the application.
Turf Builder Weed and Feed may be applied, to registered lawn types, anytime weeds are actively growing. Be sure not to apply any products containing a lawn fertilizer within 6 weeks of using any other lawn fertilizer.
It's typically best to start applying fertilizers to your lawn after the first mowing of the season. Once the lawn has been mowed apply lime then apply Turf Builder with Halts and water the lawn. This can all be done on the same day. Follow-up 6 to 8 weeks later with the application of Turf Builder Weed & Feed.
Applied Turf Builder with Halts Crabgrass on March 31, 2013. The yard now looks like a lawn. However, there are new broadleaf weeds and clover growing up in a number of spots. What would be a great and immediate solution? And what would be a great follow-up or next step to your solution. Thanks in advance.
You can apply Turf Builder Weed and Feed six to eight weeks after applying Turf Builder with Halts. Keep in mind that for weed killers to work the high temperatures for the day need to be hitting between sixty-five and eigthy-five degrees. This has to happen consistently every day after applying the product.
How long after seeding should you wait to use Scotts Turf Builder® Weed & Feed?
We are planning on putting down the Scotts Turf Builder with Halts Crabgrass Preventer in March, then we know we need to seed and then we want to use the Scotts Turf Builder® Weed & Feed for all the other weeds. How long should we wait between each application and are we doing it in the correct order?
You will be able to sod or plant seed four months after treating an area with Scotts Turf Builder with Halts Crabgrass Preventer. Because crabgrass preventers are formulated to keep your lawn crabgrass-free by preventing the crabgrass seeds from becoming established, desirable grass seeds will also be prevented from establishment. If you are planting larger areas of bluegrass, rye, or fescue seed, you may wish to use our Turf Builder Starter Fertilizer with Crabgrass Preventer or Step One for Seeding. These products have a different active ingredient that will prevent the establishment of crabgrass without hurting northern grass types. However, it does not last for four months, so we do recommend a follow up with Halts after six weeks. You need to wait 6 - 8 weeks between fertilizer applications so refrain from putting down any other fertilizer during that period.
Typically in Michigan with a mixed grass type consisting of bluegrass, ryegrass, fescue we suggest an application of Turf Builder with Halts Crabgrass Preventer. Turf Builder Weed and Feed is usually suggested for the second application in your area. We suggest calling us and we can go over you full lawn program with you. 1-877-465-5160

Is this product safe for newly sodded Bermuda lawns?
I have a lawn that was newly sodded in October, 2012. Since, many weeds have sprung up in the seams between the sod patches. Is this product safe to use on the new sod? And, is early spring an appropriate time to apply?
This product does not control crabgrass. It is used in the late spring or early summer for the control of broadleaf weeds. Early spring applications usually involve Turf Builder with Halts Crabgrass Preventer.
In spring on Bahia we suggest waiting until after at least the second mowing before fertilizing. This is to ensure that the grass is actively growing. To obtain the best control of your weeds we suggest not mowing at least two days before your application and waiting at least 24 hours after the application before watering the product in, allowing it to dry, and then mowing.
We recommend that you wait to mow until several days after applying the product. Mowing the lawn will also cut off the leaves of the weeds. You need adequate leaf area for contact and absorbtion of the product.
Why my grass turned yellow after applying Scotts Turf Weed & Feed?
I followed the instruction on the product to apply Turf builder Weed & Feed. However, my grass turned yellow in most parts of my lawn after one week. Now, 3 weeks has past and the grass are still yellow. Is this normal? Will the grass turn green? Thank you!
As long as your grass type is listed on the label, then your lawn should recover. Discoloration is usually a sign of stress to the grass, which could be a result of heat, lack water, insects or over application. Typically, given enough time, the grass will recover once ideal conditions return. If over application is a possibility, water when rain is not expected. Water about an inch a week for 2-3 weeks and this will help encourage the lawn's recovery.
