letting crabgrass die

riegersteve(Z9)May 5, 2010

am in southern cal, and working on getting buffallo grass in the ground.

will the crabgrass die out in this heat and lack of water ?

Nope. If you water enough to get the buffalo grass established - and it takes quite a bit of water the first year, the weeds and crabgrass will flourish.

NEXT year will be easier.
