    Spray it with round up. It will kill just about anything.

    I second the Round up! look's like there's not anything worth saving in the picture, then you can reseed a few days after the weeds turn brown.

    I sprayed it with roundup before 8oz to 1gal of water...all it did was turn the leaves yellow for a week then kept on growing.. I also brought this weed to a local nursery and he was puzzled also.

    if he cant id torpedograss then its time for a new nursery.
    it will take multiple apps of roundup. Dont mix it so rich a plant can only uptake so much at once it is a waste. I have never had reason to mix stronger than 3 percent. Of course I am talking about roundup pro. No other roundup product is the same.

    agreed ,only mix 1.5 to 2 oz. per gallon and add a non ionic surfactant . it will be a total kill in 7 to 10 days.
