ok...another spring is coming, another year at trying to grow a decent lawn
and another year putting down pre-emergent. the directions on the bag
(Scotts) say to put it down in general terms and general times but nothing
specific. what are actual basic or good hints of when to use the stuff. i'
m thinking that maybe in the past i've put it down at the wrong
time...either too soon or too late. what signs of nature should i look for,
if any. BTW i live in central coastal New Jersey.
thanks for any tips,
Sure there are. I live at the central NJ shore and there are plenty
of them here. Just look around for tall shrubs with yellow flowers
the second half of April. Or just put it down the third week in
April, which should be fine.
I tried to time my addition to right before I 'have to' and lost. Some
might say, when a certain flower blooms, or a certain air temp, I just
add when it seems warm enough for my grass to start and grow. I have
to reapply sooner, but no more guess work for me, I have a small yard
Right now my yard is covered in snow, so it's a good sign it's too

All depends on what weeds you're trying to control and when they
sprout. Some sprout in the fall and are semi-dormant until spring, so
those would have to treated in the fall rather than spring. Others
sprout early spring, and others sprout in hot weather. There is no
"one-does-all" herbicide, no matter what they advertise.
When people are asking about when to apply pre-emergent to a lawn in
Spring in NJ, unless they specify otherwise, it obviously means pre-
emergent crabgrass control. And clearly he wasn't asking about Fall,
he wants to do it now.
