    Have been seeing this grass in more and more yards. I know its not crabgrass, or quack grass. It grows in clumps and is a very stiff grass, wide blades, dark green.

    Pre-m does not help control it. I also thought it might be tall fescue invading the mostly Kentucky and Rye yards. Q4 does nothing, Speed zone does nothing and a 200.00 bottle of Certainty did nothing.

    I always have a hard time identifying grass type weeds.
    Thanks guys,
    Mike

    It just looks like K-31 in your dwarf variety TTTF lawn. But what do I know? I'm a warm season turf guy

    Should have read the first post closer. You care for primarily KBG and Rye. My vote is K-31 TF.

    K 31 is great for dog fenced in areas looks like crap but handles the urine and tracking well but you will pull some unwanted weeds from the seed
