I dont think its crabgrass cause we see it quite a bit as well and the blades closest to the ground seem much thicker. . This stuff is weird cause its very thin at the base and lies flat kinda like a carpet then at this time of year starts putting the big ugly shoots off. Im stumped?

I will try to get some better shots tommorow. I dont think its dallis gras thoug either cause we treat that stuff a ton as well. Just looks different like a big clump mat. Thanks for your replies though!

The customer told me he dident care if I poured gasoline on it he just want it gone. Not often that people don't care if you drop the nuke ( glyphosate) .
