Q: What's the shortest wait time for spreading pre-emergent AFTER putting down new lawn seed (patching)?
Specifically, I'm using 1) Scotts Lawn Soil (contains a fertilizer) 2) Pennington Smart Seed Sun & Shade
I'm asking this because I'd like to patch areas of the lawn myself when the nightly lows are ABOVE freezing temps in New Jersey, which will be "1 Week" before the lawn care company will spread their pre-emergent on April 1st. (Long story, but I cannot call them to delay their pre-emergent application)
Edit: From past years, it appears that the lawn company uses a pellet-type pre-emergent, such as "Preen"
