What kind of grass or weed is this?
Hello all, I have this grass or weed, beginning to grow in patches, in my nice, lush lawn. At first I thought it was crab grass, but it lacks the redish purple at the base, and it is taller, and not as flat lying. When freshly mowed, it blends in well with the lawn, but, in the wet season, it grows much faster than the lawn, and will be inches taller than the lawn, in just a few days. Also, now that we have had a long dry spell this summer, most of my lawn is dry, and browning. But this stuff remains green, and continues to grow!? I am left with this stuff, in tall, bushy, green patches, surrounded by a drying lawn.
What is it, and how do I control it? I have used roundup on it in the front yard, and will now need to determine what to re seed in its place, to match the existing lawn. But, my large backyard is FULL of this stuff, and its not feasible to burn all this stuff down.
What is it, and how do I kill/control it? What should I replant?
