Identify

Asked August 1, 2018, 3:10 PM EDT

Please identify what this is in my yard. It seems to be doing a great job growing but it isn't my normal grass and doesn't look like a weed. What could it be and what can I do to get rid of it?

It is not possible to say exactly what it is from the photo. A possibility is K-31 tall fescue that was part of a grass seed mixture or weed contaminated seed. It looks like it has a clumping growth habit as does tall fescue. Not easy to control grassy weeds. They can be dug out or carefully spot treated with glyphosate (a non-selective herbicide) and then the areas reseeded.
