The Importance of Controlling Weeds and Feeding Your Southern Lawn

Your lawn is waking up; now is a great time to feed.

Everyone knows how important it is to start the day with a hearty breakfast. That goes for lawns, too. Lawns across the South are waking up from winter dormancy, and they're looking to refuel and start their growing season off right. Applying a weed control plus fertilizer to your lawn helps keep listed weeds at bay and provides the nutrients it needs to thrive in harsh environmental conditions like extreme heat and drought. Fertilizer also thickens grass, combating future weed growth and increasing curb appeal.

The first application of the year truly sets you up for success. Having a strong lawn from the get-go means less work for you down the line. ScottsĀ® Turf BuilderĀ® BonusĀ® S Southern Weed & Feed2's dual-action formula of weed killer and fertilizer is just what your Southern lawn needs after a deep sleep. The weed killer controls over 25 listed lawn weeds including dollarweed, clover, and dandelion, while the fertilizer feeds grass to crowd out future weeds and build strong, deep roots to withstand Southern stressors. You can apply BonusĀ® S to St. Augustinegrass (including Floratam), Centipedegrass, Zoysiagrass, and Carpetgrass any time after the third mowing of the season. It is available for purchase in the following states: FL, TX, KS, LA, MS, AL, GA, SC, OK, AR, TN, and NC.
