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.
