If there is a drought or dry spell, should I water the lawn a day before applying Ferti-Lome Weed Free Zone to help with uptake?

We haven't had rain in a while (2 weeks). The top soil is dry. Should I water the lawn a day before to help the plants uptake the chemicals better?


The Fertilome Weed Free Zone can be applied to dry or damp soil, and it is often recommended to water lawns the day before an herbicide to help with uptake. That is a great plan and should help with any stress the plants may be experiencing from drought. You do not want to have any rain or irrigation for at least 4 hours after an application of the herbicide.
