There is your answer... it has the same response as a "Hayfield"... the stem of the plant get thicker and taller as the plant grows and the blade is now cut off and all that is left is stem and sheath... it regrows as time passes and there is nothing wrong... this will be an opportunity for weeds and possible death to individual grass plants,,, so advise the client that what he did is not the thing to do... be patient...
