    I have about 20,000 sqft of Rebell which is 10 years old and never been overseeded. I am this month overseeding with Black Beauty, a reccommendation of Kirk's from Designs to Dreams. My question is out of the 20,000 sqft maybe 3 - 4,000 sqft is crabgrass. I have been killing some of it with Drive 75 which works great.

    As this crabgrass will die in first frost, must I or should I go to the expense of killing it all with Drive 75 which will probably make my lawn look like crap ??
