Paging Bootlegger - It's February, what should a good lawn owner be doing for his yard?
I didn't want to hijack the other thread, but Bootlegger seems to be widely respected as the authority on lawncare. I've got centipede grass, and per your suggestion I put Simazine pre-emergent down back in November, as well as winter fertilizer.

What should I do this month/over the coming spring months to prep my lawn for success? More like I want to do some work now if it means less maintenance later.

That guy asked how to kill some weeds, and I didn't want to hijack his thread. I don't have weeds. Since I've been here, I've noticed that Bootlegger gives some season advice about lawncare, which is what I was curious to hear. If that bothers you, then GFY.

Pretty sure he said the only thing you should be doing right now is spot spray the weeds. He'll pop in and let us know when we need to get to work.

Should mainly be seeing broadleaves at this point, especially if you sprayed Simazine. If you see any poa coming up, Simazine does have post-emergence action on it. Only other thing would be possibly applying some F-stop or T-methyl to any areas that fungus/Brown patch, etc affected last year.

Oh shit! Lol.

Boot, all I have is regular ole St. Aug on my lot. In the past around this time of year I'd usually just spread Scott's Weed and Feed. It seems to get rid of the clovers and prevents those little weeds that have pickers on them.

Is this a good plan to follow or would you recommend another route?

for me February is fertilizer month when I fertilize all our fruit and pecan trees. This was as per Dan Gill years ago.

Thanks man. When should I seed/fertilize? I have a couple small spots (1'x 1' and a long 1' trench type deal) that I'd like to seed this year.

If it works, by all means keep doing that. Granular selective herbicides aren't usually the most effective, but if it works enough to keep your clovers and stickers at bay, then that's great.

Seed when soil temps get consistently above the 70 degree mark. Fertilize after you get the weeds under control, in order that your turf gets the full benefit of the nutrients
