moss like spongy area in lawn

Asked July 3, 2014, 11:06 PM EDT

Hi we purchased a home in Southampton PA last year approx 1/2 acre lot. In the back yard of the home there is a large area around 30 x 30 that is dark brown and has a very spongy feel to it you can almost bounce on the substance.Aside from being very ugly and somewhat a curly texture. It is low to the ground and looks like some sort of moss but not sure. Can I send a sample to you and if so where do I send it. We would like to know so we can get rid of it and treat it. thank you I asked severals garden shops but no one is sure. It is very unusual.
