    I'm on the other side of the state, South Haven. It looks like the grass tips are shreded. Every time the lawn is mowed it does this, but only to certain clumps of grass. It almost looks like a fountain ornimental grass growing in the lawn. Anyone ever delt with this?

    I Amy Be Wrong But It Looks Like Dull Mower Blades Shredding A Clump Of Turf Type Tall Fescue. Hard To Tell From The Pics.........the Pic Isnt Very Clear On The Computer
     
  8. If the tips are shredded then the first thing you should check is the mower blades.

    Are you mowing this lawn?

    Ok i know that the mower blades shred it, dull or sharp, but here is the thing. There are only a few areas in the lawn that do this, like a different type of grass. It is spreading!! What my question is how do i get rid of it. Round up is out of the question. Would Sahara work? This is the only lawn that we mow that has this, and we mow over 300 lawns.
