I need guidance. Pre-emergent? When to seed?

I used this in the past with good results. The times to put stuff down can vary some depending on the weather.

All tips right hand corner.

Its time for pre-emergent now.... if the yard was dry enough, I'd put some down.

I seem to recall where some people have sprayed grass killer on the grassy weeds that never died off this winter since the Bermuda is still dormant. Can anyone confirm this?

too late to spray with round up, grass has broken dormancy, whether you see it or not, it has. Celcius is an excellent weed killer (grassy and broadleaf) that is safe on Bermuda and st Augustine, spray once now then again in 21 days . available at any of your major commercial fertilizer dealers, JDL, ewing, harrells, bwi etc..

When day time temps are 85* or higher. Tip: it helps to dethatch prior to over seeding and then lightly cover new seed with top soil. Water water water.

I had really good results from Balans last year. Usually found at the feed stores outside of town.

I didn't get mine done while I was home due to rain and ice . I plan on getting it done when I get home next week and hope it's not too late. I have a contingency in place if I don't get the preemergent down soon enough. (2.5gal of MSMA).

So I got the lawn raked and mowed. What fertilizer/pre-emergent should I put down today? Stuff I thought I was going to use says not to use on just starting to green grass.

I put out some round up pre emergent and since I was a little late, used round up on all the crap that has shot up, and over the granite area in case I missed anything. The pre emergent did start taking it's toll on some of the not so hearty weeds that were popped up before I hit it with the other. Now I need to go get some gas. The war on ants is real! I swear I poison the yard every year and they just come on back. Destructive bastards.

2,4d will slow down if not put grass back into dormancy if not careful, this time of year when grass is just beginning to green up.
