Help Identifying Grass

Post by dbtothayard » April 8th, 2019, 6:39 pm

Hello, trying to get a handle on what type of grass this is so that I can make my yard care plan. I'm in SF Valley, Southern California. This grass does really well in the Spring, half of it dies by the end of Summer, and it recovers fast as soon as the rains hit in Winter/Spring. I'd like to go with UC Verde but it seems expensive to strip up this lawn and replace it with plugs. If I can get a couple more years out of this grass, that would be good and I'll eventually go with UC Verde. Is this tall fescue? Any specific type?

Hmmm. Does it use a lot of water to keep it nice? Do you have any pictures of the seed head?

Sorry for the delay. Yes, it appears to be pretty thirsty grass, though I don't have anything to compare it to.
