Invasive grass in gardens and yards

Asked September 1, 2017, 10:22 AM EDT

Can you help me identify this grass and advise best practice to eradicate it? The grass has alternating leaves of of a central stalk or vine like "arm". The root system is vast and it sends out rhizomes all along the root. Thank you
