Answer: A turfgrass mixture is quite common. Even if you begin with a single grass type, native grasses usually show up within about 5 years. So, unless you want a picture perfect lawn with all the grass blades a uniform thickness and color, a mixed turf is just fine. The weed and feed you used should work over the next three months, killing off the weeds and helping the lawn grow lush and thick. Crabgrass is an annual grass so it will die out, but the seeds will be ready and waiting to sprout next spring. Crabgrass is best controlled with a pre emergent applied in February or March to keep it from sprouting. Wild onions won't be killed by the weed and feed. Their bulbous roots are not bothered by herbicides so your best approach is to dig them out, roots and all. Put your lawn on a regular feeding, watering and mowing schedule and eventually you'll have a nice green weed-free lawn.
