Good Morning Everyone!
Crabgrass will be an epidemic over the next several seasons due to the wet summer we had in 2015. Crabgrass is an annual, warm season grass that can be hard to control if not done at the appropriate time. It can begin the germination process once soil temperatures reach 55 degrees in our region. The most optimal way to prevent crabgrass is before it starts--meaning that the application of a good pre-emergent herbicide combined with your spring fertilizer can help prevent crabgrass from germinating and taking over your lawn. A good pre-emergent herbicide can have up to a 10 month longevity period, meaning that it can provide up to 10 months of protection and withstand up to 15 inches of rain before being diluted.
