Tips: After Weed Control

June 12, 2023
Lawn Care Tips

Follow these guidelines immediately following your weed control application to increase the effectiveness of the Weed Control product:

  • Keep kids and pets off the lawn until the product is dry. – typically 1-4 hours after an application.
  • Do not water your lawn for at least 4 hours after the application. Please note: if it rains immediately following the application, the effectiveness of the product may be impacted. Otherwise, the product will still be effective despite rainfall.
  • Wait at least 24 hours to mow your lawn. Otherwise, you may cut weeds off before the product has properly absorbed into the entire plant system.
  • Proper height. Your lawn should be mowed regularly at the proper height for your grass type. This means that your lawn may require mowing more than once a week during peak growth and only once every two weeks during periods of slow growth. Since the root system of a grass plant grows proportionally to the above-ground parts of the plant, a longer cutting height results in a stronger, deeper root system.
    ---- Cool Season Grasses
    • Kentucky Bluegrass 2.5 to 3 inches (60 - 75 mm)
    • Perennial Ryegrass 2.5 to 3 inches (60 - 75 mm)
    • Tall Rescue 2.5 to 4 inches (60 - 100 mm)
    ---- Warm Season Grasses
    • Common Bermuda 0.75 to 1.25 inches (20 - 30 mm)
    • Hybrid Bermuda 0.5 to 1.0 inches (12 - 25 mm)
    • St Augustine 2.0 to 4 inches (50 - 100 mm)
    • Zoysiagrass 1.0 to 2.5 inches (25 - 60 mm)
    • Centipedegrass 1.0 to 2.0 inches (25 - 50 mm)
  • Be patient! Weed control takes time, and sometimes multiple applications are necessary. However, when combined in a comprehensive lawn care program, you will see a dramatic reduction in broadleaf weeds growing in your yard over time.
  • Be proactive! Keep your lawn properly cut. Weed control is most effective when performed in combination with other services, like fertilization, aeration and overseeding, and with ongoing proper cultural practices, like watering and mowing.
