    Easy--just dig up and look at the for roots rhizomes, or stolens--if not present--you have fescue. Fescue does not creep. Spreads slow if at all.

    What would you do with 3 acres of Quack Grass Riggles?

    It looks like a common utility fescue that is seen widely in the Central Valley. If he kills it, he will likely be killing his entire lawn.

    If it's in the entire lawn, then yes he would. I'd just wick or spot spray to get rid of it.

    Hopefully he just has a few random clumps.

    Fescue works well out here, there is no reason to get rid of it. Just start an over seeding program with finer bladed varieties.
