Yard Maintenance Tip

When we put in our yard three years ago, we got a raw deal and quite a bit of the sod had crabgrass in it. We had a long process of dealing with the people who we purchased the sod from and that is another long, frustrating, story. End result is that I know what to do to get rid of crab grass and our yard is free of it and other such non-grass menaces.

At least in Utah and Colorado, (and probably Idaho), when the forsythia is blooming, you put pre-emergent down. If you do it too early or too late, nothing will get rid of the crab grass. Out in my drive today, I noticed that the forsythia is blooming in abundance, so now is the time! Everyone go out and spread your pre-emergent. You (and your grass) will thank me later.
