Question: 

I just seeded my yard, can I spray for broadleaf weeds?

Answer: 

Most broadleaf herbicides should not be sprayed on newly seeded turfgrass until after the area has been mowed twice. You can start mowing a newly seeded area once the yard has grown to three inches tall, and you can mow it at 2 to 2.5 inches height of cut. After you have mowed twice, you can spray most broadleaf herbicides.
