Hey guys, wondering if anyone knows how to make crab grass look greener. I mow for a lady that doesn't want new grass but wants whats there to be greener, and i cant find any info besides how to remove crab grass. Will nitrogen make it greener? thanks

Drive xlr8 at 2oz/k should do it. Haha. Don't do that. You know come first frost her yard is going to be dead. Why would you waste her money, your time, and possibly hurt your reputation by trying to fertilize cg
