Now is the best time to apply pre emergent herbicides to your spring lawn. The synthetic products that Wells Brothers recommends are Gallery for the control of broadleaf weeds and Dimension for the grasses. A 10-pound bag of Gallery sells for $29.00 and will cover 2,000 square feet. This application will last around 4 months. Dimension is available in a 12-pound bag that covers 3,500 square feet and in a 35-pound bag that covers 10,000 square feet. Dimension sells for $15.10 in the 12-pound bag and $40.90 in the 35-pound bag. Dimension can be reapplied every 4 weeks.
The all-natural product is called Corn Gluten meal. It comes as a powder and granulated. The powder works faster but is a mess to deal with. The granulated is slower to activate but easier to apply. The application rate for both is 20 pounds per 1,000 square feet. The price this year is $32.00 for a 40-pound bag of powder or granulated.
We get asked a lot about whether to apply pre emergent herbicides and fertilizer at the same time. The answer is you apply one then the other. You do not mix them in the spreader at the same time.
