YMMV. My local Walmart had about 20 in stock, and Brickseek was accurate. Lots in stock at other nearby stores as well (Raleigh area). Rang up at $5, no problem.

All $13 around me with a $5 store about 40 min away. Going to keep an eye on this as my store is listed as having 48 in stock ! Hopefully it will drop to $5. Thanks 👍🏼

It's getting late in the season to apply this in the south (my crabgrass is already having a party), maybe that's why it's so discounted?

Yeah, my lawn is already weedy. I missed the window to apply pre-emergent (Charlotte, NC area). But I ended up overseeding the hell out of the lawn, and some of it actually took.

I knew that if I applied pre-emergent then I wouldn't have gotten any of the seed to work. So I was pretty much stuck.

Next year I'll apply this stuff in late Feb and then seed in early April and hope for the best.

30 available in Frankfort, KY!

Picked it up for my lawn (fescue) when it was $13 at Walmart. Very happy with the lack of weeds and the beautiful green grass! We paid Weedman to treat it last year...not bad, but not the best experience. I decided to treat the lawn myself this year using the Scott's My Lawn app...so far, so good. Time will tell if I made a great decision or a terrible mistake!

At this price you could even afford buckets to store it in and keep it fresh and dry! Great product for my lawn!

It's getting late in the season to apply this basically anywhere. Pre-emergent crabgrass/weed control should go down basically as soon as the snow melts and the grass has had a chance to dry up a bit.

Decent price to stock up for next year though. If you have a basement, keep it down there to reduce temperature extremes to help it last.

Yep, in spring you can really only do one or the other... I mean technically you could put some pre-emergent down early, then after a month and/or few rains throw down some seed & hope for the best.. but IMO it's better to seed in fall to free up spring for pre-emergent. Seeding too late in spring can make it hard to get established grass before hot summer temps.

That's not gonna work in Charlotte. You can apply the pre emergent but you'll have to wait to seed until early fall. Its too hot and the pre-emergent will prevent any seedlings for 8-10 weeks. There's no way any new grass will root properly to grow (especially since the heat will slow growth). As someone who lived in Charlotte and now in Richmond, your best bet is early fall seeding with a starter fertilizer and then another fertilizer application late october (its still warm and I cut my grass to December here in RVA). This has been the best route to a decent lawn, my two cents...
