Can you identify this lawn weed?
Montgomery County Maryland
This is yellow nutsedge, a common lawn weed. It is not a type of grass but is a sedge. It is easy to pull out but you are not removing the entire root. A nutlet remains in the ground to regrow unless you dig it out. It begins in areas with damp soil but can move into other areas of the lawn. If you want to use an herbicide get one that is labeled for sedges. There are many on the market
