What type is light green aggressive grass

Asked May 8, 2017, 9:01 PM EDT

I have a light green, fine bladed, aggressive growing grass spreading throughout our lawn. I don't like it & prefer the traditonal dark green grass. Should I just kill it & start over? Ron G. Mid-eastern Washington County

It's difficult to identify the grassy weed you mentioned without seeing it or sharp photos. What you have described suggests the lawn may be infested by bent grass or rough blue grass.

Go here to compare your weed to these grassy weeds (also see control recommendations):
