Crabgrass!? or some other
I live in Southeastern Massachusetts and have had bad crabgrass problems for the last few years. Last fall I killed off the crabgrass, did a deep thatching and reseeded with Jonathan Green Black Beauty. The grass came up fairly well through the fall, with a few sparse areas.
On April 12, I applied JG Crabgrass Preventer plus Green-Up Lawn Fertilizer 22-0-3. I'm looking in my yard now and there is significant crabgrass already showing throughout. Or now as I'm reading more of the forum, maybe it's something else?
We had a major rainstorm that actually ended in a dusting of snow about 4 days after I applied the fertilizer.
Is it possible that this storm negated the effects of the fertilizer? Should I try a re-application asap to get the crabgrass back under control? Am I screwed?
Feeling like I should've built that ice rink this winter after all.
