centuries old question...not really

nocturnalMarch 30, 2014

Hello guys,

I went to orange box and as usual the guy had no knowledge. So, here I am asking questions here and I am sure I will get the response to my question.

So, I picked up Lesco 19-0-7 Dimension Crabgrass preventer as I was not really satisfied with Scotts Turfbuilder with Halts. Now, both of them are sold as pre-emergent with fertilizer...so is it safe to assume that Lesco 19-0-7 can be used in place of Halts?

Also, here in MD it is raining today on Sunday, and Mon - Wed is going to be without rain, but will start raining again on Thursday. Can I apply Lesco 19-0-7 on Monday?

I am new homeowner and trying to learn all I can to keep my lawn green. My neighbors are all retired and maintain lush green lawns, and me working and being young has little time and almost no experience. Thanks.

Yes you would be fine putting it out today. Dimension needs to be watered in with .5 " of rain or irrigation after application. However, if your in maryland there is no rush you have at least a couple of weeks. Yes the Lesco product takes the place of Halts.

Thank you, Joneboy. You answered everything I wanted to know/assured of. I am starting fertilizing now.
