Crabgrass Pre-Emergent

A few years ago, we did a video explaining the importance of timing when it came to applying crabgrass pre-emergent. Crabgrass can really devastate a lawn if it spreads and is not controlled properly. Some years are worse than others for crabgrass especially around sidewalk edges and “hot spots” as they are known.

The thing to keep in mind when using a product that prevents crabgrass is that really it is only a barrier for about 100 days. So the earlier you apply the product the earlier it expires. The secret is to make the application as close to germination of the awful weed as possible without actually being too late. While there is a bit of post-emergence control in most products, its like playing with fire. Anyways check out this video and if you have more questions just give a call.
