Real Veri-Green Crabgrass Preventer Lawns
Product Overview
Ready for a lush lawn that keeps out grassy weeds like crabgrass? Jonathan Green Veri-Green Crabgrass Preventer plus Lawn Fertilizer feeds your lawn for up to three months and provides highly-effective pre-emergent control of crabgrass. When applied prior to germination it controls grassy weeds such as goosegrass, dallisgrass, chickweed, henbit, and oxalis, as well.

Unlike other crabgrass control, this product contains an advanced herbicide known as Dimension® that provides post-emergent control, killing weeds after they have germinated. Postemergence control is limited to crabgrass and is effective for up to four weeks post-germination. Please note, it will only kill the plant up to the 3-leaf stage of growth; a fully mature crabgrass plant has 7 leaves.

  • For best results, apply in the spring prior to the germination of crabgrass and other grassy weeds. Crabgrass germinates once soil temperatures reach 55°F, so it is best to apply when air temperatures are between 50 – 75°F.

  • We don’t recommend applying two of our weed controls or fertilizers together, as you risk burning your lawn. You can, however, apply two of these products together if one has fertilizer and the other one doesn’t. The rule of thumb is: if two products have different functions, it is usually possible to apply them together.

  • Apply to a dry lawn a day or two after mowing.

  • We recommend waiting at least 24 hours for people and pets to enter the treated area after application to allow the product to activate. After applying Veri-Green Crabgrass Preventer plus Lawn Fertilizer, water your lawn to move the fertilizer to the roots. Once the grass has dried, people and pets are safe to re-enter the lawn area.


    Follow all label directions for products that contain pesticide controls for re-entry instructions. All control products have been screened by the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and are properly labeled for use on lawns or gardens. Please read and follow all label directions.

  • 25% Slow release: feeds the lawn for 3 months.

  • We recommend applying this product once per year in spring. For severe infestations, a second application may be applied in 30 days.

  • Our recommendations for storing your fertilizer:
    Place it in a cool dry place, off of the ground, out of direct sunlight, and keep it away from moisture. Keep bags (especially that have already been opened) containing unused product in a locked storage area inaccessible to children and pets. Do not store near feed or foodstuffs.


    To prevent cross-contamination, do not store near open containers of fertilizer, seed or other pesticides. Under these conditions, fertilizer will last at least two years.

    • Carefully read all instructions prior to application
    • Wear proper personal protective equipment (PPE) when applying this product, such as gloves, a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, and shoes with socks. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse.

    • Do not apply near water, storm drains, or drainage ditches.

    • Apply this product only to your lawn or garden and sweep any product that lands on the driveway, sidewalk or street back onto your lawn or garden.
    • Be aware of local ordinance requirements concerning lawn fertilizer applications. “Black out” dates may limit or prohibit lawn fertilizer applications from late fall to early spring in certain areas.
    • Avoid breathing dust. Can cause eye irritation. Harmful if inhaled.
    • Prolonged or frequently repeated skin contact while handling this material may cause allergic reactions in some individuals.

  • Can I use Veri-Green with Crabgrass Preventer and Lawn
    Weed Control at the same time?

    Yes, if you apply Veri-Green Crabgrass Preventer plus Lawn Fertilizer first, water it in and then apply Lawn Weed Control while the lawn is still wet. Aim for a day where no rain is forecast for 48 hours and temperatures are under 85° and not humid for 48 hours after the herbicide application.

  • What is the difference between Veri-Green with Crabgrass Preventer and Season-Long Weed Preventer?

    Veri-Green Crabgrass Preventer plus Lawn Fertilizer is a 2-in-1 product that kills crabgrass and fertilizes the lawn. This product acts as a pre-emergent for broadleaf weeds and a pre-and post-emergent for grassy weeds like crabgrass (up to the 3-leaf stage). Do not seed with this product as it will kill your grass seedlings.


    Season-Long Weed Preventer: This is a pre-emergent product for broadleaf weeds and a pre- and post-emergent for crabgrass. There is no fertilizer in this product so it can be applied in the heat of the summer. Do not seed with this product as it will kill your grass seedlings.


    For lawns with crabgrass issues, we advise applying Season-Long Weed Preventer in the beginning of June to lengthen the crabgrass prevention window of product applied in March or April. Because it has no fertilizer, it does not interfere with any other lawn application.

How to Apply


  • We recommend using a spreader to evenly distribute the product onto your lawn.
  • Check to make sure the spreader opening at the bottom of the hopper is closed.
  • Set the spreader according to the recommended setting on the packaging or use our Spreader Settings Tool above.
  • Push the lever forward only when ready to spread.
  • Apply fertilizer around the perimeter of the lawn to establish a turning area. Then run the spreader back and forth within the area outlined by your first perimeter application. Always allow an overlap to avoid gaps in coverage.


  • Sweep any excess granules off of hard surfaces and back onto the lawn.
  • Thoroughly irrigate the treated area after application for best results.
  • Once watered, wait a day to mow the lawn allowing the product time to activate.
  • Do not seed for 3 to 4 months after application.
