TURF LINE’s Dissolve Weed Killer Plus NPK fortified fertilizer contains all essential plant nutrients and will control dandelions, plantain, chickweed, buckhorn and most other lawn weeds. For best results, apply when grass is tall and moist. In order for weeds to be affected, the material must adhere to the leaves of the weeds for 48 hours.

Arthroban Grub and Insect Control plus fertilizer feeds and protects your lawn in One Easy Step. Special summer fertilizer formula with UFLEXX nitrogen won’t burn your lawn and feeds up to eight weeks. Contains 2% iron for a deeper green. TURF LINE Arthroban Plus Fertilizer effectively controls grubs all season long, WITHOUT having to make an additional application or buy an additional bag. Arthroban Plus Fertilizer also controls European crane fly larvae, mole crickets, cutworms and chinch bugs. The best time to treat for grubs is mid July to late August, the same time that it is recommended as part of this program. European crane fly control is best achieved by application in late September or early October. For this product to be effective, it must be “watered in” by either rain or irrigation. Apply when rain is forecasted or irrigate a minimum of .5 inches. See product package for application instructions. *HINT: an empty tuna fish can makes a great rain gauge. Just measure and mark a line at half and inch, place it on the area that you are watering and turn off the sprinkler when the water hits the mark.
STEP 4 – Winterizer Fall Fertilizer Plus Dissolve Weed Killer
Turf Line is one the only 4 Step Programs to offer weed killer in step 4. We do this because fall is your last chance to control broad leaf weeds.

Avoid application when raining or rain is in the forecast. Do not water for 48 hours after application. Use only on established lawns. The NPK analysis is specially designed for fall application. It encourages root development and thickens turf without excessive leaf growth. This enables the lawn to better withstand the rigors of winter for a beautiful weed-free spring lawn.
