    What type of weed is this?

    I need some recommedations on the procedure for getting rid of this type of weed? What do you think of Drive, Acclaim or Green Light MSMA Crabgrass killer. The latter says it takes care of Dallis and Crabgrass and can be ordered online?

    Will any of this stuff yellow my lawn or kill it? I have read many people putting liquid iron in their mix.

    Thanks alot of your help.

    Doesn't look like crabgrass. This lawn is too thin. Is it a new lawn? Is there any chance it was started with a wheat straw mulch? Is it wheat?

    Its a fescue, rye mix...Scotts Premium Blend. I am in PA by the way. Someone in another forum said it might be Johnson grass, it looks more like this than Orchardgrass.

    looks like Timothy or Johnson Grass, from the growth that can be seen. A closer pic might be able to distiguish better. By the way, NICE PATIO too, lol.
