lawnboy,
looks from the pic that you have a problem with Brome, but hard to tell as the pic is a little fuzzy. We've had some this year in Ohio as well, not that often that you see it.

What do u use on "broom." It almost looks like a cheap rye grass that is just tearing at the tips. It is spreading, and is seen in about 10 of the lawns that we mow. Any suggestions??

I have a real hard time looking at photo's on this site, but to me it looks like bent going dormant, or just cut too tall.

Its not that james. It is in blotches in the lawn. If u look at it from a distance, it looks like ornmimental grasses growing in the yard. The tips of the grass are torn.

IF the frayed part to the top is not a seedhead then I'm not sure what you have there. I was assuming that the tops were panicles(seedheads) which leads me to believe its Brome or Cheatgrass. If this is true the only way to control it is to spot treat with Glyphosate(round-up).

Looks to be a sedge my man. Recently mowed off seed heads I would presume. Leaves are too green and glossy to be anything else. Try rolling a leaf between your fingers near the base of the plant.....if it feels triangular then you are dealing with a sedge weed. Good Luck.

lawnboy,

You said it looks like rye. Could it be common perennial rye?

"Common perennial ryegrass consistently showed poor cutting quality."

In the last pic it looks like poa. Interesting quote about Perrenial Rye. Its all we grow here and it is more difficult to get a good cut as compared to Kentucky Bluegrass i find. Its softer, finer, and it folds over more. A high lift blade will help you get a better cut our of P. Rye.
