When should I fertilize my lawn in Louisiana?

Should I mow before weed and feed?
Mowing. It is recommended that you mow a few days before applying weed and feed and that you wait a few days after applying to mow again. This ensures that the herbicide — the “weed” part of weed and feed — has time to be absorbed through the leaves of the weeds and can begin to work.
Should you weed and feed before rain?
When Should You Apply Weed And Feed: Before Rain Or After Rain? If you want to apply Weed and Feed, you should do it a couple of days before rain.

What happens if I use too much weed and feed?
