The Q&A Archives: Crab Grass

Question: I live in Alabama. I have about eight spots of crab grass in my bermuda lawn. What is the best way to kill the crab grass?

Answer: Crabgrass is easier to prevent than to control once it gets a foothold in your bermuda grass lawn. To prevent winter weeds like poa annua, apply a crabgrass preventer to your Bermuda lawn in late September or early October. Apply it again in February to prevent crabgrass and certain other broadleaf weeds. A healthy, well-fed Bermuda lawn rarely has a weed problem. If weeds do develop, apply a lawn weed killer in June to control growing weeds.
