Some years are worse than others for crabgrass invasions. I think this was one of the worst! It is easier to prevent crabgrass from growing than to kill it once it sprouts. The best defense is a pre emergent herbicide applied to the turf in February. Pre emergence products stop the weed seeds from sprouting. Best wishes with your lawn~
