    going to lay seed for a client tomorrow in their back yard which consists of mostly sand and crab grass. They want it done so I'll do it but should I remove the crab grass first? if so, how should i remove it and or should i put a preventative down to kill any unseen or future crab grass?
    Thanks
    Richie

    I'm not an expert on this, so take my advice cautiously. My recollection is that almost everything that kills crabgrass also kills St. Aug. (and centipede). So, I would kill the crabgrass first and then put down the St. Aug.

    Do you currently have the seed? As far as I know, St. Augustine is not available in seed.

    That's what I was thinking. . .doesn't St. Augustine grow from roots and rhizomes?
