I live in Georgia and planted some Bermuda seeds in some bare spaces in
my lawn. In a day or so, all of this grass popped up where I had plated
the seeds. It appears to be crabgrass. I didn't have it before. Can
someone explain to me why planting the seeds brought this about?
It'll grow there - it'll come in from the sides. Crabgrass preventer
usually only works before seed germination, so it's a bit late this
year. I'd put it down in early March next year, pull out the
established plants this year.
If you want the spot covered until fall, which is when I put seed
down, use annual rye. It comes up fast and only lasts until frost.

We put down some topsoil and sod and now have crabcrass coming in on
the edges where we had topsoil but no sod. Use some crabgrass killer
concentrate in a sprayer that contains MSMA. That will get rid of it
after 1 or 2 applications.
