ugly grass in lawn

Asked April 14, 2018, 10:18 AM EDT

We have a mat-like grass that has invaed our lawn. We thought it was frost burn but it is not. It is lowgrowing, fine soft blade and invasive. When you pull it up it is like pulling up a rug. Any way to get rid of this other than Round-up which I will never use or similar product.

Hello. It would be helpful to see a photo of the roots and/or mat when you pull it up. Is that something you are able to do? Thank you.

To Marcia L. We will be passing through Lansing tomorrow. Where could we drop off a sample?

If you go to the website www.pestid.msu.edu you will find directions for submitting specimens. Click on the highlighted word ‘facility’. Good luck!
