Is it ok to use if we have two little dogs

It is fine to use with animals. Just remember that almost all weed killers contain some forms of POISON. If you follow the directions on the container and you can't go wrong. Let your dogs on the sprayed area after 10 days.

How long before I can let my pet(s)/child(ren) out to play on my lawn once it has been treated?
Generally, it’s safe once the product has dried. However, we would suggest to keep them off the lawn for a minimum of 24 hours (ideally 48 hours) as this will be enough time to ensure the lawn has taken up the treatment. Pets that may graze on the lawn (e.g. rabbits or even dogs) should be discouraged from eating any of the grass till after the first mowing (remove the clippings). Do not mow for 7 days after applying and do not feed the lawn clippings from the first mowing to pets or livestock.

Can i use weed and feed after mowing

1 answer
James F.
James F.

It is best to use before mowing as the grass and weeds are longer, so you are going to get a better coverage. You can use it after mowing but a lot of it gets wasted on lawn clippings that remain in the grass. If those clippings are covering the weeds - then what is the point in using it? The best guide is to read the instructions by the manufacturer as they designed it to work via their instructions. But yes, it will work after mowing, but it is not as good than with longer lawn.

After spraying 'Weed n Feed' on the grass, leave it for 7 days, then mow it before you put livestock on the treated area. For future reference, spray half the lawn and fence off if possible. The chickens can spend 7 days on the untreated area, then move the chickens to the treated area, and spray the untreated area. Otherwise just lock the chickens up for 7 days and do the whole area. Remember to mow it after the 7 days have passed.

Can it put on grass that hasn't been mowed for 2 weeks?

If it’s growing strongly it might become very thick & difficult to cut after being fed.
You could mow it, wait a week & then apply weed &feed then wait another week before mowing. I recommend the 1 week after & 1 week before mowing rule.

I've given on the hose-on thing, it is pointless and doesn't work. I'm just gonna mix it in a watering can and do it that way.
Does anyone know what the ratio is of feed and weed : water?

I believe it is 20:1 as recommended in one of the comments. I will give it a go at that, as I have some plants I want to keep and will use a hand sprayer.

The DR is set by design. You do not dilute it yourself. You just control the flow rate with your finger.

It's mainly for weeds and lawns but if you oversparyed on shrubs and plants it's OK. It's not meant for that purpose anyway.

I dont think you are doing anything wrong. I think the dipensing device is poorly designed and simply does not work.
I resorted to tipping it out into a watering can and dispensing it manually (after doing the maths).
I now have skin rashes and one arm has dropped off (joking).

After reading a couple of other feeds, I removed the lid (it does screw over the plastic tabs) and found the feeder tube had dislodged from the cap. The feeder tube sits inside the container and fits into a tube which is part of the hole the hose water sprays over when the hose is connected. this obviously means using a tool (pointy nose pliers or similar to pull the tube out of the container and re-insert the tube into the tube receiver part in the lid. The other option is to take it back to the retailer and get them to fix it or replace the product. the instructions say to shake well, this would provide the perfect opportunity for the tube to dislodge.

Can it be used when grass is wet?

No. I find it best to use in high sun. You need to do it to bedry and with no rain coming for at least a full 24 hours. If it's wet you are diluting the weed side of it. If you want to do a wet application use the weed and feed granules. Yates do one, so do Hortico(same company). Then you wet the lawn first leave for two day and water in. Only spray your lawn with it in spring and mid winter. To many times you will make a weak lawn.

If it’s morning dew and no other recent water it will be fine, the mixture does not spread as accurately as you might think.

Never. Get a premix and a pump sprayer instead.
