    I never had it in any of my lawns before, I tried id'ing it online. If it isn't, does anyone know what it is?

    Turfscape, I can't find anything online that confirms that. Do you know of a website that has desciption and picture. I'm not saying that it isn't I just don't want to treat it if I'm not sure. By the way this stuff is really ridgid and thin or flat at the stem

    Might be tall fescue. An older strain possibly?

    It looks like Poa to me as well.

    And what do you cut that with? A broomstick?

    Sharpen your freakin blades already.

    Yea, kinda figured someone was going to say that sooner or later. The blades are sharpened weekly and well, where the "POA" is the grass is so hard and thick it just shreads it. The area is just about 6' in diameter, however it looks like S**T and I want it gone!!!
