Scotts Lawn Pro Step 2 Weed Control Plus Fertilizer prevents some weeds and feeds your lawn at the same time. The fertilizer analysis is a 29-3-3 mix of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium with other ingredients to kill and prevent weeds from growing. The best time for application is late spring from early April to mid June, depending on local conditions--weeds should be growing but it should be before dandelion blooms begin to show. Proper application according to instructions will feed a lawn for two months.
Mow the lawn prior to application. Water the lawn to moisten both grass and weeds for best results.
Set the fertilizer spreader rate to provide even coverage. A 14-pound bag will cover 5,000 square feet of lawn.
Begin fertilization with two header strips across opposite ends of the lawn's shortest width. Make application strips down the length of the lawn, overlapping the wheel marks on drop spreaders and about 5 feet apart on rotary broadcast spreaders.
