    Homemade Crabgrass Killer: Select an old sock or nylon; pour baking soda into it. The amount you need depends on the size of the patch. More is not necessarily better; you just want enough to coat the leaves. Prepare the weeds by misting with a garden hose. Lean over the crabgrass and tap the baking soda out of the sock. Strike it with your hand and let the dust settle on the leaves. Coat the entire patch and wait a day or two. The crabgrass should turn black and die.

    Lawn Care 101 — tip one : For example, the granules of weed-and-feed products, which are applied with a spreader, must stick to the leaves of the weeds to be effective. That requires moisture. The perfect time to apply, therefore, is an early morning when there's a heavy dew on the lawn -- the heavier the better. If the grass isn't wet, you'll be wasting your time and money.

The three-holed side of the container dispenses seeds smoothly and evenly. If you need more seeds for a big bare spot on your lawn, use the open side of the lid.

    Fall is the best time to fertilize your lawn if you live in the North. Cool-season grasses, such as bluegrass, fescue, and ryegrass, respond well to feeding in early September and again in late fall (late October or November). It helps them green up earlier and look better in spring.
