Evergreen Complete 4 in 1 Extra Strength and pets (dogs)

Asked 9 months 4 weeks ago by Jansavill

Hello - I purchased the Evergreen Complete 3 in 1 Extra Strength and spread this on half of my small lawn last Saturday. I cordoned the section off for my 2 dogs (they are avid grass eaters)! It rained heavily on Sunday, which was good and watered it in. Sunday afternoon, I went around the edges (where the rain may not have reached) and watered it with a watering can. I have read the instructions on the canister but am so scared to take down the netting and let my dogs on the area, as I see it says "Do not use the first 4 mowings for mulching. They will be safe to use after being thoroughly composted for SIX MONTHS". I know when I let my dogs on to the area they will immediately go out there and eat the grass/weeds. How long should I wait before I take the netting away and let my dogs on there, or should I seek veterinary advice please.

Pets Entry after EverGreen Complete Application

Posted 11 Nov 2016

Hi Jansavill,

The dogs should be kept out of the area during application, and can go back onto treated area once it has been watered in and is then 100% dry.

Unless you know your dogs have any allergies or are hypo-sensitive to anything then they will be perfectly fine to go back out on the treated grass once it's 100% dry.

Kind Regards
