Crabgrass -- am I crazy?

Okay, so crabgrass dies with the first frost, right? How about dumping a bunch of ice on it? Or is there some kind of freezing spray, like a dry ice spray? I just have it at the edges of my yard, trying to creep in, so I wouldn't have to do that big of an area. What do you think -- am I crazy?

Makes more sense to get a weed torch and fry it out of there. Annual weeds are fun to control with a weed torch.

Well, but it costs more, too. And I'd end up killing the grass as well, wouldn't I? Crabgrass isn't like a dandelion that you can isolate and burn. Anyway, is there any way my idea could work?

Thanks!

No....just pull it up if it's not that big an area. Next year use a crabgrass selective preemergent herbacide to keep any seed from germinating period.
