We suggest waiting at least 1 week between applying this product and a weed control. If you plan on using another control product that contains a fertilizer we suggest waiting at least 6 weeks, to avoid over fertilization of the area.

Question

Should I use this in my area in the Summer?

My Lawn Care Plan doesn't recommend using this during the summer in my 62326 area code? Is there a reason? Would it be better not to fertilize my lawn during the typical hot dry summer months?

As long as your lawn stays green, you can still feed it with our slow-release lawn food products in the summer. However, we don't suggest you use SummerGuard unless you want to feed and control insects. If you need to feed the lawn, but have no insects to control, we suggest using Turf Builder Lawn Food.

Question

Late Summer Application OK in Cool Summer

It's been very cool here in Chicagoland. Temps are in the mid-70s, with only an occasional foray into the 80s. Though the bag says to apply only through June, the Summer fertilizer doesn't seem practical with the lack of heat. Would applying TB w/SG be ok this week? No rain in the forecast, either. Dry and 70s!

You may use Turf Builder with SummerGuard anytime you need to fertilize and control lawn damaging insects. Be sure to space lawn fertilization at least 6 weeks apart, and if temperatures are expected to be above 85 Fahrenheit, water the application in immediately after application.

As long as temperatures stay below 90 degrees, waiting for water is not a concern. If it is very hot, you would want to be sure it was going to rain soon after application.

To avoid over fertilization, you must wait at least 6-8 weeks between applications of a lawn fertilizer. If increased insect activity is an issue between fertilizer applications you can use Ortho Bug B Gon Max Insect Killer for Lawns.

It is good to be cautious when applying products to your Floratam lawn, especially when temperatures are high. Scotts Turf Builder with Summerguard is a fertilizer and insect control product, it does not control weeds. The product is safe for all grass types including Floratam. If your temperatures are expected to be over 85 degrees, make sure to water immediately after the application. Do not apply, if you are not able to regularly water your lawn when temperatures are high.
