Can I use Weed N Feed on my 6 week old Santa Anna Couch?

Hi I have planted santa anna couch thatchings about 6 weeks ago, they are spreading well and so are the weeds! Can I use weed and feed on it as it wasn't grown from seed?

Lawns • Weeds

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.
