Branch Creek Weed Shield Organic Selective Weed Killer  

Branch Creek Safer Play 10-0-2 is a granular fertilizer with a pre-emergent herbicide that provides superior control of crab grass and other grassy and broadleaf weeds. Branch Creek Safer Play with Weed Control is a novel, natural weed control product that is not comprised of toxic synthetic chemistries.
Branch Creek Safer Play with Weed Control has two novel modes of action:

  1. Burns seed hairs of weeds without affecting desired turf grass.
  2. Proteins and Polypeptides restrict the germination of seeds

This unique double action gives Branch Creek Safer Play with Weed Control superior pre-emergent control over other organic products.


  • The Pre-Emergent technology allows for natural weed free turf unlike any other in natural land care.
  • Novel and unique double action allows for superior Pre-Emergent weed control.
  • Branch Creek Safer Play 10-0-2 with Weed Control is 25(b) exempt, which means it is a minimal risk pesticide that does not need to be registered with an EPA number. 25(b) products can be used in many instances where pesticides are banned or not wanted. Check your local regulations.
  • Apply 3-5 pounds per 1,000 square feet.  Use 5 lb. rate on high pressure crabgrass turfs.

Application Timing

  • For optimal results, apply 10-0-2 over two treatments.  Apply the first treatment when soil temperatures reach 50°F (for optimal green-up and early season weeds). Apply the second application in 4 weeks following that for later spring weeds such as crabgrass.
  • For a single application, apply Safer Play 10-0-2 before soil temperatures reach 57°F for 3 consecutive days (you can check your soil temperatures by FOLLOWING THIS LINK and simply entering your zip code).
  • These temperatures will usually occur in Mid-March to April (or after turf breaks dormancy), but follow soil temperatures as above for the optimal results.

Application Notes

  • For best results, water lightly after application if rain is not forecast for 24 hours.  Irrigation or significant rainfall within a couple days of application will improve outcomes.
  • For best results, apply this product within a few days after mowing and avoid moving for a few days after application.
