    has anyone noticed those lighter mat like patches of grass taking over people's lawns. ive talked to trugreen and they say to use roundup several times but that does not seem to get rid of it. once bentgrass gets in your lawn it seems like you are stuck. in ohio it seems like almost everyone has these bentgrass patches forming. does anyone know how it spreads? or how to take care of it???

    We have the same problem in our area (Maryland). The customers are upset. It gets in the landscaped areas as well. I also talked to a local turf care company and they told me the same thing. But the results are not good. Roundup is not strong enough. I too am at the end of my rope with this junk! What is on the market to get rid of this stuff? Are the results 100%? That is the million $$$ question. Please help guys. :help:
