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.

Actually, if you have Poa Annua then you would apply this in the fall. You would apply it a second time in the spring for the Crabgrass. I need some of this for my backyard Poa Annua, but of course no stores around me have it.

If you don't want the fertilizer included, you can get just the pre-emergent for around $15. Not sure if there is enough fertilizer to warrant paying double the price at the full price point.
My entire lawn is covered in POA annual this year...taking your advice..purchased several bags @5 each and waiting till fall and early spring.

Anyways, the common weed killer ingredient is 2.4 / 2.4D. Been in use since the 60s, but like any chemical that.kills, best to wear a N95 mask to filter out as much of the airborne dust from these combo fertilizer+ weed killer, round up, or other weed killers. Long sleeves and pants, a complete change of clothing right after application is smart.

(Post-emergent bottled spray - Just look for the 2.4D on the ingredients. Wal-Mart tends to have a bottle cheap. If you're buying more than a bottle a season for a 1500~ sqft lawn, you didn't control with pre-emergents well - in which case you'll be going with the hose spray bottle and nuking the entire lawn of weeds with full coverage.)

I usually use regular seed, but a lot of coated seeds on the market. If you're seeding coated seeds, same outfit.

(Honestly, coated is a total waste of money and their way to trick you into spending 2x+. If you don't water, don't fertilizer, keep the ground moist the first two weeks, no amount of seeding coated seeds will do you much good. Most of us aren't trying to grow grass in a desert...)

...

Save water?

I use the spray once before spring when seeding and fertilizing. Works well in keeping those small patches of the lawn not covered well by the sprinklers moist, and because it keeps water in the soil, better for the grass. If you're in an area like socal that doesn't get much rain most years, helps. If you get lots of rain, ignore.

Ie. You'll have to wait a year for green lawns.

...

Otherwise faster, because it's still spring, a full till / roundup to kill everything, then fertilizer + reseed will get you a green lawn in a few months.

my Walmart had the big bags for $17 each. Snagged 3. The smaller bags were marked at $13 even though brickseek had it as $5. Maybe it would have rang up different but I didn't care about losing $6.

Basically the first time I've been in Walmart since the last time I bought fertilizer 3 years ago.

The small bags were marked $13 at my store but rang up $5. Also, the Walmart app has a price scanner. So when you are at the store just scan the upc for price confirmation.

Keep them sealed in the original plastic bag to avoid moisturize and they'll be good for years. That's the nice thing about synthetic fertilizer and weed killer.

If you let any fertilizer get moist, they'll likely get moldy and you'll be adding mold etc to everything - plants, grass, roses, etc etc.

What is a good post emergent that will not kill my grass? My lawn is lush and green after new sod last September. I didn't apply pre-emergent and I am getting weeds. I can pull a lot of them, but what looks like crabgrass is starting to grow a lot due to the rains (I am in the south). I don't want to kill my lawn, just the weeds.

If it's crabgrass, https://www.homedepot.com/p/Ortho-Weed-B-Gon-32-oz-Max-Plus-Crabgrass-Control-Concentrate-990601015/203686902
But know that you're attacking that problem late!
And any of these post-emergent can harm regular grass.

https://www.pennington.com/all-products/fertilizer/resources/how-to-kill-crabgrass-and-prevent-it-from-returning

Know the cycle - always kill pre emergent with a heavy weed and feed dose in two cycles before spring if needed.

Well, keep what you can under control with pulling. Spray locally if they really overrun a patch to stop the invasion.

Was able to grab the last 4 at Walmart. They happened to be laying behind some Preen bags-- probably fell off the top shelf. I remember seeing on BS a quantity of 47 a few days ago but that dropped to 4 this morning. This should last me through the summer. Thanks OP!

Had 20 or 30 bag of this in Cicero NY store. TB with crabgrass preventer is a 30-0-4 formula, plain old TB is 32-0-4. Seems like I can use this in place of the standard Turf Builder all year and cost is less than a third of the standard plain stuff. No pets so that is not a concern for me.

5$ small bag is cheaper per pound..than the $17 big bags.. there were only 6 small bags left vs 30ish big bags at my Walmart...they can be found right next to the outdoor gate
