The Q&A Archives: Crabgrass

Question: I just moved into a house with a new sod bermuda lawn. Grabgrass and weeds are already starting. When/how soon can I apply something to get rid of the crabgrass and weeds?

Answer: Dave,

Crabgrass can be prevented with preemergence products applied in very early spring. Once it is up and growing you can't kill it without harming your lawn too. I would mow and ignore it for now as you build a stronger lawn. A dense, healthy lawn will choke out annual weeds like crabgrass over a year or two.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
