Crabgrass preventer down, what now?

I put the crabgrass preventer down last week. I am in Wisconsin and am curious of what to do next and when. Thanks!

now you should just sit back and watch the crabgrass grow! then complain to the manufacturer of the preventer that it didnt work,,,,then listen to them tell you you must have put it down wrong or you could try this crabgrass killer www.crabgrassalert.com

Now you make sure the product is adequately watered in. Then just keep mowing your lawn regularly, every 5 days or as needed. Keep your blades sharp, and never mow more than 1/3 of the total plant height off at one time. Aerate in the fall. Take a soil test then too and lime/sulfur according to test recomendations. Give it a good quality winterizer in late fall. Treat w/merit in mid summer if you have had grubs in the past. Does that help?

You know, it really is annoyingthat companies selling junk always revert to saying chemicals are unsafe. Try living with out chemicals. Look up the definition of chemical. Why can't they just stand by their product.

Oh and by the way, their products are "chemicals"
