I applied this a little over 2 weeks ago and now, I notice I have some weeds and some crab grass starting to grow. Now, we've had a semi warm winter, could it be that do to the warm winter the seedlings already started to germinate? I don't want to apply more this close and burn my lawn.

Sounds like you were a little too late. Keep in mind that no product can get 100% of every thing and good weed and crabgrass control may take a couple years of vigilant maintenance and timely product application.

Answer: 
Dimension only helps to control other weeds, it is not a true herbicide. It is really designed for crabgrass, if the crabgrass had 1-2 tillers when this was put down, it will not work. It does take a little time to break down and become effective. Mid April is a little on the late side to apply this, try to do it in March and again in May it will be the most effective this way.

Being applied in April, you may need to do some spot treatment of the germinated crabgrass, however, it will help with any crabgrass that has yet to germinate. You should specifically look for a weed killer with quinclorac in it. Quinclorac is very effective in post emergence treatment of most weeds, crabgrass included. Read Less

Answer: 
You should be OK to apply now. I applied it in March 15 and still have a spot or two of grab grass growing that probably germinated early. If you live further south than I do (virginia Beach Va). you missed the best time to get all the crabgrass. Wait another week if it makes you feel better but we had so much rain the last two weeks here that applying is no issue.

Answer: 
Apply no later then April 15th.A good rule of thumb is to apply when the Forsythia bushes are just about done blooming. That's when soil temps are ideal. You can apply a second dose about 8 to 10 weeks after the first for extended coverage. I do this every year and never have any crabgrass.

Answer: 
Apply prior to three consecutive days of 50-55 degree soil temperatures. You can find lots of online tools than can provide this data. Make sure to plan it during a good rain afterwards or water it in.
You can apply again after 3 months or so, but if you plan to reseed you'll have to wait a few weeks after each application. There's specific timelines listed on the label.

Hi Todd,
Great question! Lesco 19-0-7 fertilizer with Dimension Crabgrass Preventer is a great product. It feeds your lawn and prevents weeds from starting.
Pre-emergent will last for about three months, depending on soil type and the amount of rainfall the area receives.
Dimension will prevent grass seeds from germinating too, so spring over-seeding should be avoided. Cool season grasses like fescue and Kentucky Bluegrass are best when planted in the fall, so spring pre-emergent is NOT recommended if you are considering adding seed.
Dimension can only prevent the germination of weed seeds, so any weeds that are actively growing before you apply this product will continue to grow. Apply this early and again in three months for up to six months of protection from weeds.
Fescue and Kentucky Bluegrass lawns will require overseeding in the fall, so allow four months after the last application of pre-emergent before applying new grass seed.
I would not apply Dimension after June 1st if you are considering over-seeding in the fall. Now (March 1st) is the best time to apply, and then again on or before June 1st.

Answer: 
Generally,here in B'ham,AL,I haven't found anything that works on crabgrass once emerged. The product works really well as a crabgrass pre-emergent. And I think it works against other weeds as a post emergent. I generally do 2 treatments about a month apart and I have been quite pleased with the results. Good luck.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lesco not the besto! If you like POA Annua, then by all means use this product. It will not work against this type of grassy weed. I had none whatsoever before using this product. I should have continued to use Scotts Halts. And now, I have been pulling POA everyday now like crazy. Another week or so and the hot temperature will kill it just like Lesco kilt my $50. April 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by You Will Not Regret Using Lesco I tried for over 15 years to get my lawn looking like I wanted. This is the 2nd year I have used Lesco instead of that national brand with the 4 step process & I am totally satisfied. I put it on last Spring & then sprayed with Weed-B-Gone last Fall. Before I applied Lesco this Spring my lawn already looked better than it ever had in the previous years even after treatments were applied of the other brand. Hardly any weeds at all & the crabgrass has been reduced to where it is no where to be found. I will continue to use Lesco & making my Fall application of Weed-B-Gone. They make a pretty good team. April 29, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by disappointed I have used this product in the past with great results, but not this year. I think the problem maybe old product. I purchased 3 bags of Lesco Crabgrass preventer from my local Home Depot in March. the bags were very dirty, I think that they were left over from past years. All of the other lawn product bags were clean and looked like new. My yard is full of dandelions, spurge and clover. I wish there was another retailer in my are that carries this product. I wasted $150.00 on product this year; I will not do this again. April 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by very satisfied with the results my grass was covered with a disease that prevented my grass from growing. covered with brown patches and weeds. i had tried weed and feed products with little results. while walking the isle, looking for something different, lesco caught my eye. after googling it, I didnt feel i had anything to lose. after 1 application, my grass was transformed from brown patches to a beautiful dark green color. This is my fertilizer. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I LIKE IT!!!!!! I've used lesco crabgrass preventer here for the past several years on my yard after I fired my lawn service,which I had used for 15-20 years.I was never quite pleased with their results.After going the DIY route,I tried Mr.Scott for a year or two.Results somewhat spotty.Then,while loitering in Home Depot one day,I saw lesco brand and googled it and read the praise.I like it!! I have gotten many compliments on my yard.I have used another brand of weed/feed that gave really good results,but I think I'm going to try the lesco weed/feed this season.Also,while it might be a smidge pricey,but when compared to the year-round lawn service and the other brands,I won't complain.Again,I like it. February 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Only spring fertilizer you need Lesco products are hands down the best you can get. If you literally want the best lawn in the neighborhood and random people complimenting you on how great it looks...look no further. This one in particular is best applied right before three consecutive days of 50-55 degree soil temperatures (and preferably before a good rain or watered in). Those temps are key to getting this activated prior to crabgrass germination. Get that right, and you shouldn't have many/any weeds for three months or more. I literally went from spraying weeds 2-3x a week one summer to hunting for weeds to spray a year later. It's that good. Note: regarding spreader settings...with a Scotts Edgeguard Mini I find 6-6.5 works best (6 for well-fed lawns, 6.5 for hungry ones). March 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best After reading some of the reviews I decided to give it a shot. It did amazingly well. Now that's what I use every spring. March 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Only brand I use I've used other products in the past with acceptable results, but I'm always looking for exceptional. My father turned me on to using Lesco brand products and I haven't turned back since. March 23, 2014
