Forget about the water. Has anyone figured out that crabgrass is a weed?
Hi Carl. I’ve talked to the pros at John Deere Landscapes [wholesale providers of products to the landscape industy] and they report that all the landscapers have seen an increase in crabgrass this year, even in treated lawns. They attribute it to the following: The chemical pre-emergents break down with excessive moisture and heat. We have had both: a relatively wet spring and a month of over 90 degree temperatures in June. If you have too much crabgrass to pull by hand, then get out the roundup and try to knock it out before it goes to seed. Then reseed fescue the first of September. -Paul
