Bent grass patches

Asked September 24, 2016, 9:30 AM EDT

We have a fairly new lawn. Over the years patches of Bentgrass have grown and spread throughout our yard. We have tried to remove and replace with new sod but nothing seems to get rid of it permanently. Any help in making the bent grass go away would be greatly appreciated.

A selective chemical control for bentgrass called Tenacity was released a few years ago. If you can't find this product locally, it may be available from Internet sources.
