Has anyone ever heard of this variety of grass type ? Does some intelligent landscaper, or lawn care operator have an idea what sponge grass is? Any educated replies or guesses?

I would assume (but I could easily be wrong) he's talking about Bermuda. That stuff can get so thick, it does feel like a sponge when walked on! Nightmare!

I believe it is more a turf condition than a type of turf. Some lawns down here that i mow have such a thick deep root base that my boots sink down 1/2 way in the crap. It is a complete PITA to mow and if you ever scalp an area then you see nothing but stolons for a good 3 to 4 inches, no dirt no grass.

I forget where you are located... but probably a warm season grass that will live in your area.

My guess is going to be Zoysia
