New grass/weed taking over lawn

Posted by isaacfox82 Southern US (My Page) on

I have been working on repairing the lawn of our new house for two years. I started with a thin zoysia in the front and back. Some of the lawn is densely shaded by large and mature oaks. I have been on a lawn feeding and weed program for about 9 months. Suddenly, the grass pictured pops up this spring. It has spread quickly for the first time this year. It is fast growing thin grass with small white tips (once about 2.5-3.5 inches). It is also growing in the shaded areas that I could not get zoysia to grow. Can anyone tell me what this is? Any feedback would be appreciated.
