    Hello All,
    I have a sod lawn (rtf) in for about one year. I caught a nasty round of fungus this summer and it has done some damage. Figured out too much h20. Dialed it back and it went away. Now I have crabgrass in more places than I want. I would like to aerate and overseed next week, so should I not worry about the crabgrass and let it go dormant for the winter? I am gun shy of putting down a crabgrass killer just before I seed. Oh yeah I live in Chico ca, northern sac valley. Hot summers and mild winters with a little frost during duck season.
