Your opinion as to the type of weed in the picture

Asked May 5, 2017, 7:42 AM EDT

I have several clumps of this type of weed/grass? in my yard, and am not sure what it is. I would appreciate your opinion as to what you think it is. I don't think it is crab grass, but maybe a sedge type weed? thanks for your thoughts opinion, it is much appreciated.

From your photo it looks like quackgrass. It is considers a noxious weed and removal or eradication is recommedend. Below is a link to pictures and description of quackgrass and another one regarding removal of it. http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/diagnose/weed/grass/quackgrass.html http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/diagnose/weed/idlist.html#Quackgrass
