    I have a customer for which all I have done is trim shrubs. He lives on a golf course and his backyard is the trouble spot. It is overrun with crabgrass with a little bermuda mixed in. The neighboring yard is bermuda. What steps can I take at this time of the year to remove the crab grass and get the bermuda to be nice looking? He pays well and I dont want to pass up the opportunity to get the business and learn.

    Drive-75df (made by BASF) is the only thing I know kills crabgrass, you can buy it on Ebay, it costs 90 dollars/pound and lasts about a year since one ounce treats close to 10k sq. feet or maybe it's 1/3 of an ounce per 1k sq. feet, I forgot exactly but you can find more info in the Chem section of the forum, here:
