    Default Killed lawn by mistake

    I sprayed my front lawn, about 1 1/4 acres with Gordon's grass and weed killer by mistake about a week ago. I just found out that I grabbed the wrong container (in a rush) by accident. I thought I was grabbing the weed and feed. Any way I really need some help with what to do now and how to do it. Thanks any information is appreciated. Larry

    What does the label say? Is it safe to replant after a certain period?

    Although you are getting late in the spring for planting a cool-season grass (e.g., fescue), reseeding is worth a shot assuming that the herbicide doesn't have any residual effects. Keep it watered and you should be OK.

    . If i were you, the lawn is the least of your problems once your wifey finds out.

    Hopefully you can explain to her its best way to start over..... new clean slate.

    At this point, nothing you can do but wait for couple weeks and then go replant your yard like a new lawn.

    Blame it on the weather. Read up on the label, wait it out, then take your tractor to it, got a york rake? Disturb the soild, re-seed, lay some straw on it, and hope for some rain.

    Then, when it comes back, just keep cutting and don't worry about weeds or feeding.

    My cousin did that, boy was he mad. Looks like its time for a new lawn. I just did mine with my tractor, it was good seat time.

    Assuming you were using Gordon's Pronto Weed and Grass Killer (25% glyphosate), lawn reseeding can take place one week after spraying: http://www.pbigordon.com/pdfs/Pronto...entrate-SL.pdf

    What kind of grass was / is your lawn? If it was bermuda it will probably recover unless you really upped the rate.
    YOU SHOULD TREAT EVERYONE WITH COURTESY AND RESPECT. BUT HAVE A PLAN FOR KILLING THEM........JUST IN CASE.

    Yeah, if it's Bermuda, glyphosate just makes it angry the first time. That stuff is hard to kill.
