Or weed perhaps. My yard has been a nightmare in the last 2 years.. House was built in the fall of 03 on a new lot.. When grading the lot they took about 3 ft of top soil off the ground and i am stuck with crappy soil.. I have been trying to get fescue to grow but i seem to get more other crap then fescue... Now i have this grass popping up.. it grows about 5x as fast as the fescue and is a single thin blade with what looks like seeds on top of it. anyone know what that would be? Also any suggestions on how to get this lawn going?? I was thinking about this fall getting a dump truck full of topsoil and then areating the lawn and spreading out a think layer of topsoil to help condition the soil somewhat..
