You should begin to see yellowing or browning of the weeds within 2 to 3 weeks following the application of Turf Builder Bonus S Southern Weed & Feed. Extreme weather conditions, such as high or low temperatures or a severe lack of rain, may delay total control for up to a month.

Hi, chinchbug.

Bonus-S is intended for use in Zoysia, Centipede, Carpetgrass and St. Augustine(including Flortam).

These are the ONLY grasses that are approved for Bouns-S. Atrazine is the active ingredient. Dollar weed is the primary targeted weed.

The best way to get accurate information is by calling the customer service number on the bag. You can do it right from your cell phone at Home Depot before making your purchase. Typically the bag lists the information you are seeking, but if it is missing, call. I wouldn't risk the chance of killing my lawn by taking advice from someone that responds to your question.

The directions on the bag for Scott's Weed and Feed say it should be applied in Spring and Fall. I would go more by the warmth of the ground, than the warmth of the air. You don't want to apply it while your lawn is still in its dormant stage.

I don't want to kill the bermuda grass--that is my yard! I just want to fertilize it and I want to kill dichondra that is spreading quickly.in the bermuda grass. It looks like the Bonus S is not recommended for bermuda--just St Augustine grass.

Howdy Dave, The Scotts Bonus S is for use on St. Augustine grass (including Floratam), centipede, zoysia, and carpetgrass lawns only. I wouldn't use it on Bermuda grass.

Bermudagrass is not an easy weed to control, especially when it must be controlled within an already planted turf, garden, or landscaped area. It can be managed by hand with a persistent program of removal, or over large areas by cultivation and by withholding water during the summer to destroy the root systems.

Covering with landscape fabric can also be effective over large areas. Control with herbicides requires careful timing and often more than one application.

Early spring is the best time to apply a grass-selective herbicide. For best control with these herbicides, make the first application in spring when new bermudagrass growth is less than 6 inches in length, then re-apply the herbicide before the regrowth reaches 6 inches again. Additional applications on regrowth may be needed through the spring and summer. It is important to be consistent to win the battle.

Happy Gardening,
Coach Dave

Question

Isn't the best time to apply Scotts Bonus S fertilizer in the fall?

Asked by
poppy

September 27, 2012
I didn't think you should apply fertilizer with herbicide in the spring because the herbicide pre-emergent would not allow new grass to grow. Is this true? I have centipede grass and know it requires very little nitrogen and would like to know when I should fertilize my yard and with what Scotts product?

The timing of applications vary greatly depending on the type of grass that one has. You are correct that Centipede requires very little nitrogen, and we generally suggest two fertilizer applications a year for this lawn type. For more specific timing about what should be applied and when please give us a call and one of our representatives, can provide you with a lawn care program based on your location. You may contact Scotts by calling 1-877-465-5160.

Julian, unfortunately St. Augustine grass,can only be sodded or plugs, it is one of the few grass types that cannot be started from seed. As for a weed and feed for St. Augustine Lawn I suggest our Scotts Bonus S Southern Weed & Feed. Be sure to read and follow all product directions, as this product is only registered to be used on St. Augustine, Centipede, Carpetgrass and Zoysia lawn types.
