My neighbor uses weed and feed, but I hear it’s not a good idea. Can you tell me why?
The timing is critical in the application of fertilizer as well as weed killer. According to the lawn experts at Aggie Horticulture, the herbicide in weed and feed products is not selective, and may cause damage to ornamental plants and trees.
It is important to identify your specific weeds, select an herbicide that is appropriate for those weeds but safe for your particular grass, and then apply it at the proper time as indicated on the label.
