Weed & Feed is a product that performs two functions. It is an herbicide that kills unwanted weeds in your yard and it is also a fertilizer that adds nutrients into your soil to promote healthy grass growth. You can find Weed & Feed at any home improvement store or garden center. It is manufactured by PBI/Gordon and contains 15 percent nitrogen with its active ingredient being 2,4-D.
Prepare your lawn for the Weed & Feed by mowing it a day in advance. Also make sure you have not watered your lawn for at least 24 hours before you are ready to use your Weed & Feed.
Pour 1 cup Weed & Feed into your garden sprayer. This measurement is enough to cover 2,000 square feet of space.
Add 1 1/2 gallons water to the garden sprayer. Remember your Weed & Feed is a concentrate, which means it must be diluted.
Shake the garden sprayer so that the two ingredients combine and begin spraying the Weed & Feed across your lawn. It is best to move from north to south or west to east so that you do not miss any spots.
Wait until the Weed & Feed has dried before you allow your pets and small children to play on the lawn.
