    Lawn guy put some of this on with a shot of fertilizer. How long, or do I have to wait to re-seed a couple of areas?

    Depends on what type of pre emergent he put down…

    Your timelime for most pres would be 8-12 weeks. My reccomendation to you would be a “Fall” seeding just to make sure your expensive grass seed doesn’t go to waste from the pre.

    One of 2 things you can do is till that area up or “disturb the “blanket” the Pr Em has made.

    or best option wait till late fall and do it. That way your roots aren’t competing with top growth. Fall plantings after the top has gone dormant the roots can still grow and get a stronger foundation for spring. Late Oct 1st of Nov I would but about 3/4 -1# of 46-0 -0 fertilizer to help feed roots and early green up in spring.
