Specticle G – Cautions
Q: I purchases some Specticle G to put on my bermuda front lawn and zoysia back yard. I was going to aerate the yard and overseed in a few weeks after I killed the weeds but on the bag it does not recommend seeding or putting sod down for 10 months. Is that accurate?
A: Indaziflam (Specticle G) is an excellent weed preventing product but you are correct: since it inhibits root growth you must wait at least 10 months before planting seed or sodding. It is mainly used by professionals on golf courses.
The product’s best use is on established warm season grasses and on ornamental shrubs that have weeds underneath.
It should not be used on weak lawns or lawns that are growing from sprigs.
