What can I do about crabgrass growing in my gravel garden planted with ornamental grasses? It's everywhere and I do dislike the idea of weed killer.


To avoid using weed killer, the only way to remove it is by hand. Keep the area well watered and frequently irrigated, because crabgrass does not like soggy conditions. Crabgrass cast a lot of seeds, so you will have to keep at it on a regular basis. Unfortunately the only easy alternative to this is to use a weed killer.
