WEED CONTROL: Use What The Pros Use!

Use our proven program for a beautiful spring lawn! Lawn and landscape professionals use pre-emergents and post-emergents in the beginning of February.

Anderson’s 13-3-7 Fertilizer (Pre-Emergent)

This fertilizer is contained with 13% Nitrogen, 3% Phosphate, 7% Potash and NS-54 Polymer coated sulfur coated urea . It is perfect for control of annual grassy and broadleaf weeds such as: Crabgrass; Goosegrass; Foxtail; Barnyard Grass; Poa Annua; Purslane; Prostrate Spurge

Timing is everything! The best time to put this fertilizer down is in the spring right before weeds begin to sprout. It will control the growth of your weeds for 6 months! Apply this fertilizer/ pre-emergent in January or February for winter weeds. For fall weed control, apply in the late summer/ early fall.

One 50lb bag will cover about 12,500 to 14,000 square feet and four bags will cover an acre. You will want to spread the fertilizer evenly over dry foliage. You will then want to water the area (¼” to ½”) so you can be sure the granules have been removed and everything is set into place. For best results, you can repeat this process every 4 months! This fertilizer will not harm your grass.


Celsius WG Herbicide (Post-Emergent Spray)

February is the perfect time to apply Celsius Post-Emergent weed control. Celsius will kill weeds such as: Crabgrass; Dollarweed; Ryegrass; Prostrate Spurge; Henbit

Celsius eliminates competition for desirable turf grasses such as St. Augustine and Bermuda and will allow them to fully develop into the summer. Early morning application will lead to a better result. It is important to apply this product while the weeds are actively growing.

You will want to mix .057 to .113oz (1.6 to 3.2g) to one gallon of water. One gallon of treatment will cover up to 1,000 square feet. One bottle of Celsius will make up to 88 gallons of concentrate! That means it will cover up to 88,000 square feet! You will want to spray the places that are covered with weeds or grasses you are trying to control. For best results, you will want to spray again after 4-6 weeks.
