I never used this site before but thought I would give it a try. Free shipping and it came pretty fast. I don't know much about fertilizer but it did what I wanted. Made my grass grow and got rid of the weeds for a reasonable price. I will definitely use this company again. Did I mention FREE SHIPPING????
Unfortunately for us it did not work very well, it was put down 3 weeks ago and we still see weeds sprouting up. We still have quite a few brown spots also we are hoping it will help in that matter. We have centipede grass so we will have to try a different brand.
People like to say that centipede doesn't require fertilizer. It may not require it, but it likes it (long as you don't overdo it). I'm guessing some of those people may have had a bad experience with chlorosis (yellowing) due to lack lack of iron, or too much phosphate (middle number in fertilizer). This stuff is great in both regards; contains zero phosphate and adds iron! And that iron seems to allow it to flourish in a little higher ph than ideal. Result is that in one area of my lawn that unfortunately contains a mix of centipede and a bermuda hybrid, both ate growing well in about a 6.5 ph.
I have a 1/4 acre of lawn. How many bags of fertilizer will I need?
Each bag will cover up to 5,000 sq ft and if you have 1/4 acre(10,890 sq ft) you will need a total of 3 bags to get the correct coverage rate. This usage rate can vary depending on the type of lawn you have and your target weed. You can check the product label for the exact usage rate for your needs.
Normally, most people perform a weed and feed program twice a year. Once in the Spring and again in the Fall. However, we recommend you contact your Local Cooperative Extension Office for specific timing recommendations for your climate region.
I bought Ferti-Lome Centipede Weed and Feed 15-0-15 and already spread it. It looks like there may be a couple areas of my yard that may have died through the winter. How long will I have to wait before I could lay sod in those areas?
The Fertilome Centipede Weed and Feed does not have any retrictions on when you can sod after or before application. You should be able to put the sod down now as the weed control in this is a post emergent only so you wont have to worry about disturbing any barriers created in the soil by a pre emergent.
