    Every year when our grass in Wisconsin goes dormant from the summer heat some of my lawns have this grassy weed that stays green and makes the whole lawn look bad. All I can tell you its not crab crass and it is a perennial. Same stuff year after year same spot.

    Todd, big blade fescue is what I was told by homeowner. I think you may be right. So how do you get rid of it.
