    1. It has a tendency to grow sideways. When grass grows sideways near a driveway, walk way, or road side you can edge it. It edges very well when you cut it with the weed wacker vertically.

    2. It has kind of a nice smell when your cutting a lot of it.

    3. It has a nice sheen if you look at it at an angle after you cut it. But there needs to be lot in the middle of the yard for this tactic to work. The sun also has to be out, and it has to be the right time of day.

    4. One crab crass clump in the middle of nice turf looks scary. This is good if your into scary things.

    5. It dies and turns brown at the end of the season before the turf grass dose. So consequently less where and tare on the mower.

    6. Its usually still green in the middle of August when the other grass has turned brown.........Well that doesn't count this year.

    7. Last but I'm sure there's lots more things to like about crab grass...........If you cant beat it, join it. Learn to love crab grass, and your family and friends will find you a much happier you.

    8. Oh one more thing. There's always a positive way of looking at something. There's also always a negative. Its your choice. Mine?? I love crab grass

    9. Oh wait.......It clogs up so badly under the mower deck , it forces me to go under there and clean it. Then I have a clean underside, and this is good.

    Ok.......thanks for listening.
