Cut lawn before or after fertilizing

chubbs_peterson(5a/Milwaukee WI)July 2, 2007

Hi I am going to add some Scotts Turf Builder Plus 2 Weed Control. Should I cut my lawn first then wet it and then fertilize? Or just wet it and fertilize? It's kind of long but Im guessing the granules will stick to the blades better if it's long. Thanks!!!!!!!!

Cut the lawn first.

With the weed and feed products, you want the granules to stick, or to lay on, the leaves, without being disturbed. Keep the kids off the lawn for two days, if you can.
