    Q
    When can I lay sod after spreading weed and feed?
    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?
    A
    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.

    Q
    What is the setting for a Scott's turf builder classic drop spreader using Ferti-Lome Centipede Weed and Feed 15-0-15?
    I have a Scott's turf builder classic drop spreader I just bought this weed and feed from you and wanted to know what I should put the setting at
    A

    Unfortunately we do not have the spreader settings for that specific combo and the manufacturer does not list that spreader on the Ferti-Lome Centipede Weed and Feed 15-0-15 product label.. Due to the thousands of granules on the market and just as many different types of spreaders, you will want to calibrate your spreader to the product you are using and its application rates. You can see a short video on how to accomplish this below.

    Q
    Is there a best order for application of Ferti-Lome Centipede Weed and Feed 15-0-15 and the application of sulfur to my lawn?
    I need to lower PH of soil for Centipede grass and will use sulfur. Need to know which should be laid first or can I do it at same time
    A

    First, if you have not done so, it would be recommended to have a soil sample analyzed at a local nursery or university to confirm that your lawn needs to have the pH lowered before applying the sulfur.  Since proper pH determines how well the soil uses those nutrients in the fertilizer, you can apply before or along with the application of Ferti-Lome Centipede Weed and Feed 15-0-15.
