The lawn is about 2 weeks into greenup and still showing new ‘muda growth peeking out.Particulars:Lawn planted last year around Raleigh NC. Lawn is right now kept @ 3/4 inch. First fert done about a week ago with 10-10-10.Weeds:Dallisgrass, cudweed, vetch and what looks like thousands of little crabgrass seedlings.(I didn’t use pre-emergent)Thanks in advanceOh and somebody shoot me if I dont Pre-emergent next year!

i would wait- that “hot” of a mix can be stressful for grasses coming out of dormancy. the problem is that you have bermuda in a market where it’s just now greening up.too far north for succesful, long term bermuda growth- not green enough, long enough.
