I had actually checked this same department approximately two weeks prior, because we were getting so much wonderful snowfall (in Southeastern Colorado), and I knew Spring Thaw was just around the corner. I applied this identical product to my lawn in late February last year, and really had good results with it. The crabgrass in my neighborhood is fairly prolific, and if it isn't addressed by some sort of treatment, it can take over a lawn with no mercy. I know some people don't really like herbicides, but I am very careful to flag my lawn and make sure no one walks on it until at least a week later, after a snow or rain, or watering with my sprinkling system if absolutely necessary, even though I don't like to turn them on while nighttime temperatures are in the teens (which they are). That's okay, though, because I just read a blurb about preparing the lawn for Spring, and realized I still need to dethatch it with my trusty rake. I don't usually rent a power rake because they tend to tear up my ground, and I enjoy the exercise. The description on the bag reads:
- Protects against new crabgrass all season
- Feeds to encourage fast lawn green-up in the spring
- Winter conditions after application won't affect product performance.
