    well it might be a cheep fescue in a KBG lawn. tell him he can have a much nicer lawn if he waits 3 months and you overseed with one kind of seed in the fall.

    you know how much that will cost him about $350 for an 1 and half acre lot.

    sounds like he just used a different type of seed than what he had down originally. I would find out the original grass, find the right seed, get rid of the new grass and reseed.

    I've done jobs like that before for people who didn't realize there are different types of grass out there. :)

    the funny thing is he thinks its a weed but i already know he messed up and put a diiferent kind of seed down how much an hour would be good to put that seed down with a power rake and and overseeder attchment

    that's a tough one to answer, I rarely go on an hourly rate anymore. It usually just takes me to look at a jobsite to figure out how much it will cost...
