How much do I need?

If unsure about the size of your lawn, general guidelines are that a typical 1/4 acre lot with home, driveway, walkway and landscaping requires a 5,000 sq. ft bag. A 1/2 acre lot with a home and landscaping features typically requires a 10,000 sq. ft bag. For larger properties from 1 to 2 acres or more, you will need to estimate the amount of additional grass area and include these in your coverage calculation..

  • Description

    The best spring fertilizer choice for crabgrass control.

    • Prevents crabgrass and other grass and broadleaf weeds (as listed on label) up to 4 months, when applied prior to germination in lawns. It also provides post-emergence control of seedling crabgrass for up to 4 weeks after it germinates.
    • Extended time release feeding of nitrogen greens into summer without excess growth.
    • Crabgrass is an annual weed, meaning it reproduces by seed and it must be treated each spring. If you keep crabgrass seeds from germinating, you keep crabgrass from growing. Therefore, annual application is recommended to established lawns to keep crabgrass under control.
    • Knowing when to apply crabgrass preventer is one of the keys to success in ridding lawns of this pesky weed. Crabgrass seeds begin to germinate when the soil temperature consistently reaches 55 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. For nature’s visual cue - this coincides approximately with blooming of forsythia and lilac bushes. Since most pre-emergent crabgrass preventers kill crabgrass only before the seedlings emerge, this gives homeowners a tiny window of opportunity. With the GreenView Fairway Formula formulation – you’ll have an additional 4 weeks to get it down, and still be effective.

  • Application Tips

    Best time to apply:

    Apply in spring.

    For best performance; apply within a few days of mowing. The most effective weed control occurs when the product is activated by rainfall or irrigation, so if rain isn’t in the forecast, water it in thoroughly.

    Can be applied to the following turfgrasses when used as directed:

    Cool Season Turfgrasses: Creeping Bentgrass, Fine fescues, Kentucky Bluegrass, Perennial Ryegrass, Tall Fescues. Warm Season Turfgrasses: Bahiagrass, Bermudagrass, Buffalograss, Carpetgrass, Centipedegrass, St. Augustine grass, Zoysiagrass.

    For post-emergent crabgrass control, apply when crabgrass is small (3-4 leaf). It will not control large tillered crabgrass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No crabgrass! I used this on my lawn in the spring and just recently realized this is likely why I have no crabgrass now! I’ll need to remember it again next spring so I can continue on this good path. My lawn looks great now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great My husband uses this and said it worked well. He had no complaints, so guess I don't either. It's a decent spring fertilizer that is easy to apply. He uses a push spreader, so it doesn't take him long at all to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I got this fertilizer for my yard as I have alot of crabgrass and wanted to see if it would work. It done a fair job and if I didn't have so much, it probably would have done a better job. It definitely made my grass grow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy application Spring is coming and our lawn is horrible looking! We decided to give GreenView Starter Fertilizer. After reading the packaging, it is a very easy process. You can either apply it before the seeds or after. I decided to do it before, no reason behind it. The area thing is it does not hurt the established lawn areas that we never have issues with so spreading it with worries that it may harm the established grass spots. I spread the fertilizer, spread my seed and gave it a little water. It does direct to not lay right before heavy rainfall. It has only been a week or so (with the decent spring weather) but we are anxiously waiting for the grass to continue to grow! It does appear the grass is growing better with using the GreenView Fertilizer then without. I cannot wait for a full yard of grass this year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fertilizer I got a bag of green view fertilizer, mainly because it was what was available and affordable. Let me tell you they exceeded my expectations. I used it this spring for a small area close to the house that I was putting Clover seed in as a place to keep some of our sheep in while the bigger fields grew. This field grew thicker and better than any other place on the property. We will definitely use this fertilizer on other places around the farm after seeing these results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice I really enjoyed using this grass seed. Now that the weather has cooperated I was able to use the product accordingly. I used it in a spot that didn't do well with growing grass. This product covered a large are. It was perfect. I did not notice any weeds or crab grass in the area. This product worked very well. I would love to get more and complete my entire yard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grass is coming in! I bought this about two months ago and the weather has permitted me to plant the seed! It took a couple days and constant water but grass has sprouted! I did have to till the ground a little then shake the seed over the spot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fuller Lawn, Crabgrass, Dandelions Still A Problem This has been a crazy spring here in Michigan. We still had snow in mid-April, so it took awhile before we could apply fertilizer. I'm happy with the fact that in less than a month our lawn already looks fuller. Not sure if this product is supposed to prevent or lessen the amount of dandelions, but we have tons of 'em, probably more than last year. Not as much crabgrass, but it's still a problem. I was hoping for a better lawn, but at least it's helped fill in some of the empty spots we had last year.
