    I hate to double post, but people don't seem to read the other forums much.

    Here is the question:

    In my area we deal mainly with fescue and bermuda. However, I mowed a lawn this week and there was a type of grass new to me. It was only around the edges of the lawn.

    It was a lighter green than the others, almost lime but not quite that light.

    It was very course. Tough to cut like bermuda but tougher.

    The blade was very wide. It was shorter that fescue and had a curl to it.

    I should have taken a photo but did not. It was a one time cash cut.

    Any thoughts as to the type of grass?

    Might have been a sedge. Not sure on your location. Couldn't find "fesculand" on any map.

    That's actually what it sounds like.
