Thanks so much!

Weed & Feed at TSC...Tractor Supply Co. in a 2 1/2 gal. sz....runs around $50, but be prepared to mow a LOT after applying it.
Apply it with a hose end sprayer that has the dial for oz. per gallon of water settings.

Call your local store to see if they have it in stock, not all stores keep it on the shelf & may have to order it.

Weed B Gone is a good weed killer...no fertilizer in it.

O.k.. I can't afford the 50.00 stuff, what weed and feed (liquid) does walmart carry that won't kill or burn centipede grass.

Thanks!

Our walmart doesn't have anything. Read EACH label to see what they say.

Do you have a friend or neighbor who might split the cost of the weed & feed? Or maybe even a couple of friends??

Just wanted to add something else.
PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT get 2-4,D! That stuff can be really dangerous to you & any animals that come into contact with it....or kids!

2,4, D is bad but how bad depends on what it is mixed with. Most all home owner available "weed" killers contain 2,4, D as well as other things such as Dicambra. Many people object to 2,4, D because they remember that it was part of Agent Orange, a mixture of several poisons, that worked together to create something much more toxic then any of the parts were.
To get that picture perfect lawn many people expend very large amounts of time, energy, and money to get a monoculture that is not natural and are helping to destroy this planet we live on.

Thanks again for the help!
