Scotts Weed & Feed with Dandelion Preventer, 15lb bag, 5000sq ft - Reg $29, Clearance $11 - YMMV

I searched and I did not find this posted - Only the larger size bags from back in August.

I picked up 4 bags of this today, even though Brickseek said that none were available at the store that I found them at. It might be worth walking through the outdoor garden section of your local store.

While this product does have weed preventer, it's also 28-0-3 fertilizer, so even if you dont have any weeds to prevent this time of year, it will green up your lawn.

This does not have dandelion prevention. There is no such thing. It has a dandelion killer. Dandelions are a perennial and most of the dandelions that will bloom in the spring are growing right now. So you can prevent a sea of yellow next spring by killing the dandelions that are in the lawn now. It only prevents to the extent that any fertilizer prevents weeds, by thickening the grass and leaving less room for the weeds to germinate.

If you're in a place with winter, crabgrass will just die on it's own. Then you put something down early in spring to prevent it from germinating. There is no killing crabgrass usually after it's germinated.

The reason this product is on clearance is that this is the time of year people are trying to clean up their lawns and replant patchy areas. You can't use this stuff in that scenario. Your healthy grass will withstand it but it will prevent ANYTHING new from germinating.
This is an excellent time to fertilize and kill weeds. It's on clearance because most people don't know this and only think about their lawn in the spring. If seeding bare spots, just don't put this down where you are seeding. There is no pre-emergent in this to prevent seeds from germinating, but it is recommended to wait 4 weeks after application of 2,4-d before seeding. If you already seeded, then wait until the new seedlings have grown enough to need cutting twice before putting down weed killer.

Anything that will kill grassy weeds aka crabGRASS, will kill your lawn grass. I prefer to spray a Liquid weed killer like atrazine in the early spring while the lawn grass is still dormant. Usually the lawn weeds will be active before the lawn grass. I've never liked "weed & feed" products. To me it's sort of like chemotherapy — mixing poison in your food to kill cancer. I much prefer to spot treat in the fall and again in the spring when temps are still mild, with liquid weed killer. I eliminated a whole patch of sand spurs that had developed in the corner of my yard near the drive way. I paid a kid $20 to pull them up with strict instructions to get the roots as much as possible, then every time I take the garbage out, I check the corner for new sand spurs. Anything that's popped up gets pulled out by the roots and dropped in the can. Problem solved.
Crabgrass is an annual and there are indeed chemicals that will kill crabgrass without killing the rest of the lawn. Quinclorac (Drive), Phenoxyprop-ethyl (Acclaim) and Tenacity will all kill crabgrass without killing the lawn. As others have pointed out, crabgrass will die at the first frost so there is not much point in killing it now.

Thanks for this - it sent me down a rabbit hole of reading about all of them. While I live in a rural area and dont need a picture perfect lawn, it would be nice to control the faster growing weeds that tower over shorter bermuda, forcing me to mow more often than really necessary.

One thing I did notice in the reviews is that Acclaim can kill bermuda grass, so reading & following directions precisely seems to be a wise move.

Completely agree with you from my personal experience. I didn't apply fertilizer early fall and my lawn is looking awful. It was good early summer when I applied fertilizer.

I should have put the caveat that my knowhow about lawns is limited to northern zones. About the only thing I know about Bermuda grass is that it doesn't grow around here in Michigan.

No problem. I'm glad I learned something. Let's hope I can retain it until Spring.

I got a whole patch of crab grass that is growing bigger, will this get rid of it? If not, what will? TIA
get some vinegar pour some in a bucket; get a rag and tie it to a large stick or broken yard tool where you have a handle and shaft; soak the rag and rub the crabgrass about 5-8 times ( you need to rub it to break the crabgrass protective repellent leaves) and within 24 hours the crabgrass will be yellow and will be dying, I killed a bunch of mine last month doing this

Will this be at all effective in getting rid of Creeping Charlie? I put some of this down a couple of weeks ago, and it doesn't seem to have done anything. Of course, it hasn't rained here in those 2 weeks, either.

just regular vinegar it will kill grass but that's the other reason to use a rag - you only put it on the crabgrass instead of spraying something which will go all around the crabgrass. You might kill an inch of grass, but it will come back.

Better to pull crabgrass to get the seeds and then pre emergent after winter
