Why is Crabgrass everywhere this summer?

Everyone is asking -why do I have so much crabgrass in my lawn or shrub beds this year. Well, there are numerous reasons for the bumper crop of crabgrass and it goes back to the hot & dry summer of 2012-which resulted in a large amount of seed and stressed out lawns that became thin. According to a study by Kevin Frank at the Michigan State University Extension, the record amounts of precipitation in June provided the young crabgrass a perfect climate to develop roots. Then the high temperatures of late July and August allowed the crabgrass to compete with other grasses in your lawn or bare mulch beds.
