I know these aren't weed seeds, and the soil isn't the exact composition as what's outside, nor is the climate the exact same, but I was a little surprised, because the weed preventer has better contact with the seeds indoors.
I'm assuming you must put down a thick enough layer of this product at the exact right time when most weeds would start sprouting in spring. In zone 7b that varies, but is usually mid March, so you kinda need two bags to go a little before that and then overlap the 6 weeks effective time to make sure you have good dates of coverage. That's at least two bags in the spring, and another two bags in the fall. At least. Maybe more if you want to supress most weeds during the entire growing season. That's just a bit too expensive for me as I have a huge lawn. I could use this in the future as fertilizer for a lawn that's already in full bloom.
But as far as weed control, I'll do a better job of staying on top of the lawn at the beginning of the season, by feeding it (all natural lawn food) and watering that in well especially just before the dryer months (beginning of June), as well as aerating well. We had the cicadas this year and ground nesting bees that punched many holes in the ground, so I thought we were well-aerated.
Anyway, there's more to lawn care than just dumping stuff on top of it (especially harsh chemicals which kill off all the beneficial things you need for a "drug-free" lawn). Every year, I say next year I'll do better, and I'm saying it again, this time without Epoma.
It's been wetter + warmer through all of 2018/2019 where we are in the south, so I applied this in February. (I laid down some lime in December, once the leaves were all up.) This Espoma certainly quickly greened up our fescue and seems to already have caught the emerging weed cycle in time. I probably missed the pre-emergent crabgrass window by a couple of weeks, but even that's not sprouting in the quantity it did this time last year. I'll likely spray a weed killer in 4 months (June) and then apply this Espoma again 4 months after that in Oct. as a fertilizer and weed pre-emergent. Going with that schedule - applying the Espoma and a crabgrass pre-emergent + summer weed killer spray, we'll easily cut our annual turf care bill in half.
We had a turf care service for a couple of years that was perfectly serviceable but expensive. We're getting the same result by doing it ourselves with the Espoma, which so far is better than any of the Scott's and other chemical brands.
