Crossbow does not list crabgrass as a weed it kills. It is more for broadleaf weeds and poison ivy. Roundup kills grass and everything so I hope you only used it in gravel.
Use a product specifically labeled for crabgrass and other grassy weeds. You can use a preemergent in spring before the crabgrass germinates to prevent its growth. Then if it still shows up, you can use the postemergent specifically for crabgrass.
