I am trying to upload the image but it keeps disappearing. Help please ?

Click to see full size

Ok, I've got it to work.

The grass in question is on the left, on the right is good grass that covers 95% of my lawn.

Any help on what it is and how to get rid of it is most appreciated.

Thanks.

How big is the image? If it's bigger than 2MB it won't upload.

Thanks Dratsab. It's 4MB, so I'll make it smaller and try again.

It all looks the same to me - just wider?

I am no grass expert tho. I treat my grass with glyphosphate 360 frequently and am slowly replacing it with gravel since cars get better grip in that.

I recommend concrete... you can use a jack on concrete tongue-out

Costs a lot more and council have a thing about 100% non permiable coverage of a property.

Not entirely answering your question, but looking close at your photo your lawnmower is ripping the grass so looks like it can do with a sharpen, its possibly the cause of it going brownish

Looks like tall fescue. Another type of grass. Thick blades, quite firm to walk on. A selective weed spray such as Turfix unfortunately may not get rid of it. You may have to kill the area or dig it out and re-sow

I had that. Turfix doesnt have any effect. I ended up digging it out, resowing in grass. I have more coming up as expected, Next Roundup time I will touch up the wide leaves with a kids paintbrush to remove it, without affecting the thinner grass.

Looks to me like Paspalum

Glypospahte (Roundup) should kill it.

My neighbour has Paspalum and it is not the same as mine. I don't have and have never had the extra tall part to it.

I sowed a fescue/rye mix but all kinds of clumpy grass pops up. I just dig it up and replace it with seed starting mix with grass seed mixed in. Works fine as it's mostly small areas - though sometimes 20 small areas if I want to be fussy.
