    Works Great -

    I use this product on Bermuda, St. Augustine, and Centipede grasses in the Fall and Spring. My weed growth has been reduced by 90%. Easy to use and well priced.

    Fantastic spring green up after dry winter

    By Chris on 06/19/2017

    Verified Purchase

    I live in west FL and our 2016-17 winter was extremely dry. So dry in fact, that my St. Augustine grass was almost completely brown. I applied Ferti-Lome Winterizer in December and again in March. Once the rainy season started in late May/early June, my grass immediately turned green and looked great. Definitely impressed with this product. If you're wondering why I rated it 4 stars instead of 5, it has to do with the weed preventer. I had a few areas of weeds that I needed to use a separate product to kill the weeds.

    Helped my St Augustine

    By Texas on 11/26/2017

    I live in south Texas. My St.Augustine was very stressed from the long summer temperatures and two yrs of treating for sod webworm infestation. Within days of applying this product, my grass was greener, and I started seeing runners, and filling in sparse areas. Whatever is in this product, my yard really needed. Reordering for second application in spring. Still see some weeds, but reduced amount.

Q
Does Ferti-Lome Winterizer and Weed Preventer II kill spurge in Zoysia?

We have a Zoysia lawn that got infested with spurge last year. While the Zoysia is dormant now, the spurge "appears dead" but I think it will come back in full force in the Spring. I am looking for a pre-emergent for spurge that will not harm Zoysia.

A

Ferti-Lome Winterizer and Weed Preventer II For Southern Grasses is labeled for established Zoysia lawns. It is also great for prevention of prostrate spurge, garden spurge and spotted spurge.
