Winter weather doesn’t usually make you think about improving your lawn … but it should. February is the best time to apply pre-emergent herbicide to your lawn to control crabgrass and weeds this spring and summer.
Hi-Yield Turf & Ornamental Weed and Grass Stopper containing Dimension is the perfect product to handle this job. Control or suppression of many grasses and weeds including crabgrass is easy and convenient. Just apply 4 pounds per 1,000 square feet to get three to four months of grass and weed control. It’s that easy!
A split application is recommended for best control in south Alabama, where the growing season is longer. Apply 2 pounds per 1,000 square feet in early February and another 2 pounds per 1,000 square feet six to 10 weeks later to provide better in-season control of grass and weeds in your lawn.
Dimension herbicide is unique in that it can also be used to provide post-emergent control of crabgrass if applied no later than four weeks after germination. To obtain this level of crabgrass control, use the higher rate (9 pounds per 1,000 square feet) after crabgrass has already emerged.
For best results, apply after mowing your lawn. Rainfall or irrigation will activate the product.
