Dear Clint,

It is not advisable to spray a newly planted lawn from couch sprigs with Weed n Feed. Chemicals should not be used until the lawn is at least 3 months old and well established. To control the weeds at this stage, you will need to remove them by hand. It may be a little tedious but in order to establish those sprigs to a point where the stolons and rhizomes are covering the surface of the soil, no chemicals should be used.
