Newly Installed lawn came up as crabgrass
New lawn installed by contractor came up as crabgrass. I have been fighting this all summer with no luck. what product can I use and still be able to reseed this fall and put down a good furtlizer down his fall. In the spring I used Scotts New lawn seed and furtlized with Scotts for new lawns.
There are some products labeled to treat for Crabgrass in residential lawns. Without knowing the type of lawn you have, we are not able to recommend the proper herbicide. We recommend contacting you Master Gardener in your county to work on a restoration and fertilizing program. A Master Gardener is a great resource for homeowners on treatment schedules and products to have a successful lawn.
