Can I apply Barricade when preparing soil for sod - Tall Fescue and/or Bermuda?
I would like to till and incorporate Barricade into the soil, along with lime and fertilizer, when preparing my soil to lay sod (I will have Tall Fescue in front yard and Bermuda in back yard). Can this be done, or will the Barricade harm root establishment of the new sod?
You CANNOT use barricade in the soil before sodding. Doing this will impede root growth and kill your sod. You should not apply any pre-emergent or selective weed killer for at least 2 to 3 months after your sod is layed and established. Unfortunately there is no pre-emergent that would be acceptable to apply before you lay down sod on residential land.
