Is it too Late to put down the Crabgrass Treatment

Is it too late to put down the crabgrass treatment?  It is early April.  This means The Masters Golf Tournament, beautiful blossoms poking out, flowers blooming, the Cleveland Browns deciding how to waste another top draft pick or two, and getting your crabgrass lawn treatment down.  The best way to control crabgrass is by getting down the barrier to protect your lawn with a preventative treatment in the Early Spring.  Is it too late to put down the crabgrass treatment?  No.  Everything is dictated by soil temperature.  With the unusually cold weather this year, the soil temperatures in our area are 47 degrees.  We do not start worrying about how effective the crabgrass pre-emergent treatment will be until the soil temperatures reach 55-60 degrees.  There is plenty of time to get the crabgrass lawn treatment down.  We will be doing our first lawn treatments through April and the barrier will be completely effective.  Do not wait too late though because this lawn treatment is time sensitive.  Procrastination getting your preventative crabgrass control down can lead to ugly clumps of this summer annual grass popping up in your yard in July.
