What month should you weed and feed your yard?
Weed and feed provides myriad benefits for your lawn, most notably the ability to nourish your lawn with fertilizer, and kill weeds with a single application. The key to applying weed and feed is timing, where it should ideally be applied in late April/ early May and then again, if necessary, in September.
When should I fertilize my lawn in Oregon?
Timing is everything; the trick is to fertilize when your grass is hungry, and in Oregon this is April, June and somewhere between the end of August and beginning of September. Though winter is often mild for coastal residents, we do not recommend fertilizing until spring after the final fall application.
When should I put down weed killer?
For the best results, gardeners should time the weed killer application to take place before weed seeds start to germinate, generally in the early spring. Gardeners often reapply the weed killer approximately eight weeks after the first spraying to help with exceptionally invasive weeds, such as crabgrass.
Should I water after I weed and feed?
Some lawn foods perform better when you water them in right after applying, while others—such as some weed-and-feed products—need to be watered a day or two after fertilizing.
Is weed and feed a good idea?
Repairing small spots now can help prevent more weeds later. Weed and feed products designed for early-spring application usually contain pre-emergent herbicides. They work by preventing weed seeds from sprouting, and they can be an effective way to control crabgrass and some broadleaf weeds.
Should you weed and feed before rain?
When Should You Apply Weed And Feed: Before Rain Or After Rain? If you want to apply Weed and Feed, you should do it a couple of days before rain. This allows it to work without washing away and prevents waterway contamination. You can also apply it after rain, while the soil is still damp, but the lawn is dry.
Do I spray weed killer before or after mowing?
Wait at least 2 days after applying a weed killer before mowing. This gives the weed a chance to grow after mowing and to have good foliage for the weed killer to work on.

How often should I water my lawn in Oregon?
On average, we recommend watering your lawn about an inch a week – a bit more during long, hot, dry spells and a bit less during the cooler spring and fall.
When should I overseed my lawn in the Pacific Northwest?
Overseed Your Lawn Most Pacific Northwest lawns will have cool-season grasses, so autumn is the best time to overseed or grow a new lawn from scratch. Plan carefully; your new grass needs at least a month before your first average first frost so it can get established.
Is it too late for weed and feed?
The general rule is to use weed and feed early in the summer. Usually you want to apply by July 4th. Avoid using any fertilizer from mid July through August. Unless you have a serious weed problem late in the summer, avoid using weed and feed and wait until fall.
What is the best weather to spray weed killer?
The best season to spray the weed killer is in spring or fall. The reason is that we should do it in warm temperatures but not when it’s extremely hot because the liquid evaporates or extremely cold so that it freezes. Spray the weed killer in early spring, then another application eight weeks later.
