new lawn full of crabgrass
Ok - I am far from a green thumb. I am horrible at lawn maintenance or gardening in general.
We just moved in to our house in April and I guess we made a huge mistake - we had our lawn put in at the end of June. We had the lawn in our last home put in the same time of year and it was fine, but this time - not so much.
We had lots of dirt put down and then had it hydroseeded by a very reputable company. 4 weeks later we now have a lawn with teensy weetsie sprouts of grass scattered amonst the crabgrass that is thriving! There is grass in there, but it seems like it's gettin choked out by the crabgrass at this point.
We are planning on mowing probably tomorrow which I'm hoping will help by letting the grass get more sunshine?
Should we fight with the landscaper and make them respray? should we wait til next spring and pray that a pre-emergent will at least tame it and see if the landscaper will do some repair work tehn? Any and all advice is greatly apprceciated.
