How Long Before I Can Walk on My Lawn After Getting It Treated?

Achieving a gorgeous green lawn takes plenty of work and routine maintenance, especially fertilization and weed control treatments. At Evergreen, we use treatments that are safe for people, pets, and the environment. Our eco-friendly treatments are very safe, so you and your family can get back to enjoying your yard as soon as possible. If you’re wondering how long before you can walk on your lawn after getting it treated, here’s what you need to know.

Keep Off Lawns for 24-72 Hours After Fertilization Treatment

It’s recommended for people, including adults and kids alike, to stay off a lawn for at least 24-72 hours after a fertilization treatment. After 72 hours, the fertilizer has been completely absorbed into the soil. Not only does this keep you and your family safe from fertilization material, but it also allows your lawn to absorb essential nutrients undisturbed. While Evergreen Lawn and Pest Control’s eco-friendly treatments are family-safe, with no herbicides or insecticides, for optimal results it’s best to give your grass time to absorb those treatments.

Keep Pets Off Lawns for 24-72 Hours After Fertilization Treatment

It’s also best practice to keep pets off lawns for at least 24 hours after fertilization treatment—ideally 72 hours, if possible. By keeping pets off until the treatment is dry, you’re ensuring that the fertilizer soaks in and is able to do its job without being disturbed by digging paws.

Fertilizer With Weed Control and Insect Control Treatments

Throughout the year, it’s best to receive fertilizer treatments side-by-side with weed control treatments. At Evergreen Lawn and Pest Control, we’ve found that the best lawns are ones that are treated proactively against weeds. We apply pre-emergent herbicides twice per year alongside fertilization. We also follow a systemic insect control program that keeps turf-destroying insects away from your lawn.

While there’s some time restriction regarding entering your lawn after these treatments, remember that they’re essential not only for keeping your yard looking its best but also for keeping it safe for kids and pets to enjoy. Consult with your professional lawn care technicians at Evergreen Lawn and Pest Control for the appropriate re-entry intervals, to keep you and your family safe.
