Crabgrass germinates each spring in sunny, not shaded, areas of your lawn when soil temperatures reach 55° If you have a soil thermometer, place it in a landscape bed or in your lawn at least 10 feet from your house foundation and check the temperature. If it is 55°, this is a good indicator of the proper time to control Crabgrass. If we have a cool, wet spring, (like we have had in the Northeast), crabgrass germination will be delayed and so should your application for control.Four to six weeks later, you can apply Weed and Feed Lawn Fertilizer with Broadleaf Weed Control (2nd application-yellow bag). This product will continue to control broad leaf weeds and feed the lawn as it begins to get hungry again!
