Crabgrass typically germinates when soil temperatures reach 62 degrees Fahrenheit at a depth of 1 or 2 inches. Crabgrass preventer (Preferably Lesco Dimension with no fertilizer or even better, my most recent discovery Sunniland 50-lb 20000-sq ft Crabgrass Preventer (0-0-7).

Either of these two products should be applied when soil temperatures reach 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Great website to track the soil temperature in your area:

I actually purchased crabgrass seed from a farm store to plant on two patches of ground where regular grass didn't grow. They were areas where I had cut down large trees and the spots remained bare. I watered for about 20 minutes a day and it grew in in about three weeks in the late fall. Where I live, water is expensive, so anything green that I can keep trimmed and survives without watering is welcome.

Outlook for March and April are temps above average, but for now still too cool to put down crabgrass preventer.
