Simplify Single Application Lawn Fertilizer plus Crabgrass Preventer should be watered in with ½ inch of rainfall or irrigation within 30 days of application to improve performance. Always read and follow label instructions.
Simplify products do not control broadleaf weeds. It is recommended that you use a product specifically labeled for broadleaf control. Read the label. Most lawn-weed herbicides work well on common weeds but may require additional applications for tough-to-control weeds. Recommended products can be found here.
Your lawn will consume more nitrogen than any other nutrient. Nitrogen gives grass its dark green color and rich look.
Fertilizing is necessary to replenish the nutrients that your lawn consumes throughout the growing season. Fertilizing also enhances new growth and encourages a lush, thick lawn. A healthy lawn will reduce the possibility of weed growth and minimize stresses brought on by disease, drought and high traffic.
Lawns should be mowed frequently enough so that no more than 1/3 of the vertical height is removed with each mowing. This helps the plant maintain sufficient leaf area for quick recovery and continued growth. For instance: If the mowing height is 2 inches, mowing should be scheduled again before the lawn is 3 inches tall. Along with the height of mowing, the frequency of mowing is critical. The mowing schedule should be determined by how fast the grass is growing rather than by a routine weekly or 10-day schedule.
• Mow when the grass is dry.
• Best results are achieved with a sharp lawnmower blade
• Alternate mowing direction
Maintain the mowing schedule into the fall as long as the grass continues to grow. The lawn should go into winter at a lower height than it was maintained during the growing season.
Water the lawn deeply and infrequently. Water once a week or so during the summer (water less during cloudy and cool weather and more often when the weather is hot and windy). Apply one inch of water at each watering. Any rainfall during the week should be considered and watering should be reduced accordingly.
Wait 16 weeks to reseed or overseed your lawn after using Simplify Single Application Lawn Fertilizer plus Crabgrass Preventer. You can reseed any time after using Simplify Single Application Lawn Fertilizer (green bag).
