PLEASE tell me crab grass is an annual!
I think I have crabgrass or fox grass or whatever that grassy weed is that grows flat on the ground from a central crown. It's a lighter colour than grass and utterly unaffected by this drought.
I am likely the culprit, having let some weeds in my driveway go to seed last year. Well, now this stuff is EVERYWHERE. I pull it out in the morning and it's back by afternoon, with a buddy.
I think I can keep on top of it, though, by hand-weeding the beds and cutting the grass so that it doesn't go to seed.
Will this eventually reduce the sheer number of seedlings? I can't very well treat the flowerbeds for it and I don't care much for lawn herbicides.
Can anyone offer me some advice (or at least some sympathy?)
