Chemical weed and feeds are very convenient for lawn care, but can burn your lawn and harm the environment. Finally, here’s an organic preemergent weed and feed that won't burn your lawn, harm your pets, or kill your shrubs.
It's safe, because it is made from food ingredients
and can be handled just as you would touch flour, corn meal or baker's yeast. This is a great organic weed and feed choice for lawns.
Corn gluten meal doesn't kill existing weeds. It actually prevents weed seeds from germinating.
So the best time to use it for weed prevention is early fall for winter weeds, and the end of winter for spring weeds.
You can apply it with a regular fertilizer spreader
at a rate of 20 pounds per 1,000 square feet. In general, you'll want to set the spreader to 85 to 95 percent open. You can also apply it by hand, or with a coffee can.
And it is also just as effective in and around vegetable and herb gardens, flowers, shrubs, rose gardens, ornamental trees, citrus, annual and perennial bulbs, and virtually any woody and herbaceous plant.
