Control of Poa Annua and Nutsedge

I have both in my yard. I have a very shady fescue yard that pretty much dies off every summer to where weed control and reseeding every year seems to be the only option. Since I am never too far away from reseeding or having reseeded, I can't use pre-emergent. How aggressively can i attack the nutsedge and poa annua that infests the yard, and should I be doing it anytime it appears, or in the month or so leading up to reseeding? Also, for the ones with seedheads should I bag when I mow, can those reseed themselves, or just mulch clippings like usual? Regards, Chris

Clumps of grass

Hi! We purchased a house last fall, after all the grass has died. Now that it's warming up, we're seeing very little lawn grass, but lots of clumps of wide blade grass. I would just like to identify what type of grass the clump is, so I can figure out how to get rid of it. If you happen to know what the fine stuff growing around it is, that would be great to know, too! Thank you!
