DIRECTIONS FOR USE

It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

GENERAL PRECAUTIONS AND RESTRICTIONS

  • Do not allow people or pets to enter the treated area until sprays have dried.
  • Not for use on turf being grown for sale or other commercial use as sod, or for commercial seed production, or for research purposes.

WHERE TO USE

This product is intended for use on most Ornamental Lawns including:

COOL SEASON TURFGRASS

  • Kentucky Bluegrass
  • Perennial Ryegrass
  • Tall Fescue

  • Mixtures of Cool Season Species 

WARM SEASON TURFGRASS

  • Common Bermudagrass

Turfgrass Tolerance:

The turfgrass tolerance to Fertilome Weed Free Zone RTS may vary and temporary turfgrass yellowing may occur on St. Augustinegrass and certain varieties of Hybrid Bermudagrass.

Fertilome Weed Free Zone RTS may injure certain turfgrass species. To reduce the risk of Lawn injury, avoid spraying drought stressed Lawns or when temperatures are above 90 degrees F.

WHEN TO APPLY

Spray when Broadleaf Weeds are young and actively growing for best results.

Fertilome Weed Free Zone RTS may be applied in the spring, summer, or fall. Spring and fall treatments under adequate soil moisture conditions are preferred to the summer treatments. Generally, summer broadcast applications to older, drought-stressed weeds are less effective.

Broadcast (entire areas) applications or follow-up applications at 2-6 week intervals are recommended for more mature weeds, for dense infestations, and for adverse environmental conditions.

Spot treatments during the summer may be appropriate for sparse infestations or as a follow-up treatment, or any time broadleaf weeds are susceptible. 

CULTURAL TIPS FOR IMPROVED CONTROL

Irrigation:

  • Do not apply this product immediately before rainfall or irrigation. Rain or watering within 4 hours after treatment may reduce effectiveness.

Mowing:

  • Delay mowing 1 to 2 days before and after the application of this product.

Reseeding Interval:

  • Treated areas may be reseeded 2 weeks after application.

    Great Stuff From a Great Staff

    By David on 04/14/2020

    Plaudits and many thanks to the helpful, courteous folks here at DoMyOwn. This product worked powerfully against an invasion of spurge on my hybrid Bermuda lawn-- which still holds the unofficial title as Pride of The Neighborhood.

    Takes Longer

    By Sheila on 04/22/2022

    Weeds die, but not in just hours. A good 24 hours before I saw any yellowing. After about 3 days, saw more yellowing. It works in time, but not any faster than other weed killers, and takes LONGER than some
