    My property used to be farmland. I'm have this plant in patches here and there :angry: . A neighbor said it is alfalfa, is this correct or not? It grows faster than my turf and the blades are very wide..about 3/8".

    Tkae a look and let me know whatcha think?

    Thanks in advance!

    Its not alfalfa, it looks like johnsongrass. Im not 100% sure. I will continue to look to see if I can come up with a definite answer for you.

    Well...
    My top choice is still johnsongrass, followed by:
    -goose grass,quackgrass or a type of fescue grass(which I doubt because of the farm thing)

    Does the weed spread out from the center like crabgrass? If so, it may be goosegrass.

    Sorry.... thats all I could come up with, hope it helps.

    Thanks for the reply Blaze. It does spread out from the center. Also, the stems are very thick and flat with a yellowish/green color.

    I'll try to attach some bigger pictures.
