Is there anything I can/should be doing NOW to get rid of crabgrass? I've decided to finally get rid of it and I don't know a thing about it. My lawn is pretty much infested with it.
Everyone around me says it is crabgrassJust wondering.. are you talking about crabgrass or wire grass (a form of bermuda - but that is arguable by some)..
Wire grass is a warm weather grass - but spread like crazy, it has 'runners' that can go a long way, even coming up thru asphalt..
So, spring is the time to get this stuff? My yard has LOTS of crabgrass and I'v actually thought about just sprayin' the whole lawn with total vegetation killer ans just starting from scratch. Pretty drastic but it'd be effective. Not a real big lawn.I have had really good luck with Scotts, or Bayer all in one pre emergent treatments. I use them in the spring before the seed takes hold. I apply the Scotts with a broadcast spreader in general, and spray the Bayer all in one on any trouble areas. Works like a champ, but you have to get it down BEFORE the seed germinates!
