We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
When to Put Crabgrass Preventer Down. In the northeast US, crabgrass thrives in dry lawn with full sun. These are also the areas where regular lawn grass naturally goes dormant in the summer - unless irrigated. I only apply it in the full-sun hot areas.
When to put Preen on flower beds? Anytime. Just don't put it on bulb areas or on lilies.
