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?

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!
