How to Apply
For optimum weed control in lawns, apply Preen StepSaver Weed Control Plus Fertilizer to recently mowed turf when foliage is moist, as this product needs to stick to the leaves of broadleaf weeds. The lawn should not be watered or disturbed for 24 hours after application. When possible, delay mowing or irrigation for several days after treatment.
Apply this product when the wind is calm. Do not apply this product onto desirable plants or shrubs as damage may result. If the product gets onto other plants immediately brush or wash it off the foliage.
Use a drop or rotary spreader designed to apply granular fertilizers. Uniform coverage is essential for best results.
When to Apply
Preen StepSaver Weed Control Plus Fertilizer Weed Control can be used either in the spring or fall. It should be used when the grass and weeds are actively growing and the soil is moist. Do not apply under drought conditions.
In the spring, the ideal time to apply Preen StepSaver Weed Control Plus Fertilizer is after the forsythia has bloomed or when the first dandelion flowers appear. For full weed control in lawns in southern areas, make a second application in 6-8 weeks for best weed and crabgrass control and for full season fertilization. In the fall, apply Preen StepSaver Weed Control Plus Fertilizer when the weather cools and both the grass and weeds are actively growing, generally around Labor Day.
For established lawns, apply Preen StepSaver Weed Control Plus Fertilizer when broadleaf weeds are actively growing and prior to germination or tilling of annual grasses. It may be applied as a single application or as a split application in spring, summer or fall.
When establishing a new lawn of Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass and/or tall fescue, Preen StepSaver Weed Control Plus Fertilizer may be applied 2 weeks after the first sign of grass germination. For other turfgrass varieties, wait until the grass is well established (3 mowings) before applying this product.
