Question: How do I get rid of crab grass?

Answer: Mara,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

the best way to get rid of grassy weeds in a lawn is to mow, water and fertilize to increase the density of the turf. There are products that will prevent the crabgrass seeds from establishing, but they must be applied prior to seed germination so it is too late for this season.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
