Ask Burton: This week, our regular February reminder about controlling weeds in the lawn!

We strongly recommend applying pre-emergent herbicides from now through early March to stop the majority of the spring weeds before they trouble your lawn! Our Dimension herbicide will stop the most troublesome grassy weeds, such as crabgrass and dallisgrass, and Gallery will stop broad leafed weeds like dandelions, clover, and henbit. Both may be applied to the same area for the best protection from spring weed problems.

Apply Dimension at the rate of a 35# bag per 7,500 square feet, and Gallery in a 10# bag that covers 2,000 square feet.

The weeds you see now will not be controlled by these herbicides. This is specifically to stop the trouble to come. Save yourself a headache later this spring and summer by applying pre-emergent herbicides now.
