Spectracide Weed Stop for Lawns won't control crabgrass, but our Spectracide Weed Stop for Lawns plus Crabgrass Killer will: http://www.spectracide.com/Products-and-Solutions/Lawn-Weed-Killers/Spectracide-Weed-Stop-for-Lawns-Concentrate-plus-Crabgrass-Killer.aspx. It does have a temperature restriction, though -- we recommend waiting until early fall to apply, then apply in early spring again right as crabgrass is emerging.

Hi Art. It depends on your grass type. Check the first table on the back label for your lawn variety -- it will range from 4 tsp to 2 Tbsp per gallon of water. http://cdn.spectrumbrands.com/~/media/Spectracide/Files/Product%20Labels/Weed%20Stop/071121958341.ashx

Question

Safe for Forsythia? How should water run off be handled?

I have a forsythia plant, should I cover this before application? Also, I have arborvitae and evergreens that are in the path of water run off. I'm using the hose attachment weed stop for lawns. What's the best way to go about treating the lawn with this in mind? Thank you!

Hi Bob. No, Spectracide Weed Stop for Lawns is just designed for listed weed types and should not be used on ornamentals. Either spray very carefully to avoid drift onto your plants or cover them with plastic before spraying.

Hi Walter. No, sorry -- this formula isn't listed for control of chamberbitter (and it shouldn't be used on floratam St. Augustinegrass). We do make a Weed Stop formula specifically for your grass variety, but it will not control chamberbitter, either. We recommend (very carefully) spot-treating with Spectracide Weed & Grass Killer: http://www.spectracide.com/Products-and-Solutions/Weed-Grass-Killers/Spectracide-Weed-and-Grass-Killer-Ready-to-Use.aspx
