    This fast growing grass is moving in along the curb in my front yard. What is it and what's the best way to get rid of it?

    Looks like barnyardgrass to me. (same deal as foxtail & crabgrass)

    Anybody else?

    Looks like crab grass and it will die over winter. Seeds from this stuff germinates at around 55 degrees F. It grows in barren low cut areas, with a lot of sun.

    I plan to pull this stuff out manually and patch the areas with some new seed (topdress with some potting soil or whatever I've got in garage). It grows so fast!
