    I think it may be ryegrass or quackgrass. Any help would be great.

    Thanks TF:help:

    I live in NC and we have already had a couple of frost. I seeded this lawn this fall and about 3 weeks after the fescue came up, this grass started to come up. It is a lighter green than the fescue. I used John Deere Select. I wonder if this seed was in the bag of fescue.

    Thanks, TF

    I'd say orchard grass. Take some to your ag. extension people. Your tax dollars hard at work.

    Sorry about the dirty nail, I just dug about 5 samples out of the ground with my hands. I took the sample to the ext service today and they said it was rye. Thanks

    LOL!!!!! WOW! You seriously need to NOT GO THERE AGAIN! Who ever works there should be smacked for even answering your question! If thats RYE grass... then I"ll give all my mowers away for free + smoke a fatty of old grass clippings!

    THAT MY FRIEND IS EITHER,,,, QUACKGRASS, BARNYARD, or "orchard." I'll lean towards quackgrass. Like you said, "WHAT GRASSY WEED IS THIS?" Actually, listen to what the ****** said and fertilize it and make that rye grass into a super lawn!
    Sorry for being so blunt, but pleassssssseeeee for like life of your business or whatever you do... DO NOT GO THERE AGAIN FOR ANY IDENTIFICATION OF ANYTHING! Unless you find a dog and wana know if its a male or female!

    HMMM, could be an annual rye...or a non-turf type of rye

    since we are just looking at a picture and his extension agent saw it in person......got to give the guy (gal) the benefit of the doubt?
