Grass/Grassy Weed ID Please

Post by Jason1604 » June 29th, 2020, 4:15 pm

My renovated TTTF is on year 4. This year is the first year I’ve noticed patches of the grass pictured. It’s very fine bladed and extremely dark. Although my TTTF is pretty dark, this stuff sticks out like a sore thumb to me. Ideas what it might be??

Jason, I can't definitively tell the species from the photos, but from the curling, it looks like a drought stressed cool season turfgrass (maybe because it was pulled up? Or was it like that in the lawn? Maybe you have a dry spot.) It could easily be TTTF...maybe some perennial Ryegrass mixed in, but I can't tell for sure.
