Remember, Dallis Grass is a perennial weed grass, unlike Crabgrass which is an annual, requires the use of a post emergent along with a pre-emergent herbicide such as Fertilome Crabgrass preventer plus lawn food.

Once the initial perennial roots are killed out, a pre-emergent herbicide can be
used for continual control of this Dallis Grass.

Natural Guard Soil Activator
Natural Guard Soil Activator with 100% Humates
GENERAL BENEFITS OF HUMATES:
Humate is a natural product and has no chemical additives.
Humate is an organic compost containing a high concentration of humic acid which is recycled back into the soil.
Humate holds nutrients in a usable form and releases them to the growing plant as needed. It stretches out the food availability between feedings.
Humate helps aerate the soil. It assists in preventing formation of large lumps and stratification of the soil.
Humate activates the decomposition of plowed under crop remains, new compost and grass clippings.
Humate increases the water-holding capacity of soils. Soil containing humate resists drought more effectively and produces better yields where rainfall or irrigation may otherwise be insufficient. (Yields increase up to 1000% in sandy loam soils and 700% in clay soils.)
Humate is a supplement to crop rotation, green manures, animal manures and inoculation of the soil with micro-organisms such as those found in Natural Guard's Natural Granular Fertilizer (9-4-4).
Humate improves the workability of the soil. Heavy clay soils can be worked into satisfactory seed beds and marginal soils into profitable soils. Soils are more crumbly and suitably-sized particles are formed in the aggregate.
Humate reduces soil erosion by increasing the cohesive forces of very fine soil particle and promotes desirable drainage and water intake.
BENEFITS OF HUMATES ON YOUR LAWN:
Promotes decomposition of grass clippings and thatch, turning them into valuable soil nutrients
Improves soil structure (tight soils will become crumblier, sandy soils show improved moisture retention)
Improves soil life (better residue breakdown and more beneficial earthworm activity)
Increases availability of soil nutrients, improving plant nutrition
Enhances seed germination, emergence and survival
Improves root development
Improves plant vigor and appearance (visual quality)
Little or no increased frequency of mowing
Makes your plants less susceptible
In addition to humates, Soil Activator contains 17 other trace elements for the health of your lawn. It is a 'must' product for anyone with a mulching blade mower. Use Natural Guard Soil Activator twice a year, once with the first spring feeding and again in the fall - at a rate of one bag per 2,000 sq. ft.
