Here is our page on stilt grass and it's control:

It is an annual weed that germinates in spring and dies out at frost. It is easily pulled now. If you don't remove it, at least be sure to stop it from setting seed as they produce many that can survive for a long time in the soil.
The use of a pre emergent herbicide in the spring is a preventative tactic for next year.
