    I'll admit, I'm not that great at grass identification. I have a few pictures of some grass that is growing in bunches on a customers property. It will not cut. My blades are changed everyday and the few spots where this stuff is growing give the appearance that it was mowed with a dull blade. I can't figure out what it is. I don't know if the pictures will do any justice, but I figured I would try here before I take it to the county extension office or Lesco. Anyone have any ideas.

    It's not wild onion. It does look like it in the picture though.
    I don't know if the pictures show enough to get a ID or at least a head start. I tried to get some closer shots showing the auricles, etc. but they didn't turn out very well.

    This grass has a waxy looking leaf blade and is hairy. I will probably take a sample somewhere when I get a chance. I just want to know what this is.
