It may be that you applied crabgrass killer at the wrong time. Using more product than recommended on the label can kill your lawn so I wouldn't recommend it. Crabgrass is an annual weed and it begins germinating very early in the season; the good news is it dies every winter. So, leave it alone for now. It will die down this winter and in late February or early March you can use a crabgrass preventer such as Scott's Halt on your lawn.

Good luck with your landscape!

Best wishes with your garden!
