You can use a "winterizer" lawn food now or you can choose a winterizer with weed control. There are many brands on the market. Crabgrass is an annual plant and it will die down when the weather gets cold, but the seeds it leaves behind will sprout next spring when the soil warms up. To avoid crabgrass next summer, apply a pre emergent weed control product early next spring. By this time next year your lawn should be weed free.
