My lawns, having been cut but otherwise neglected by the previous owner
are being taken over by either a small grass or grass-like weed, which
cannot identify from various Google sites.
Apart from appearing to be a small variety of grass with a leaf span o
perhaps 30 to 40 mm, the leaves themselves are slightly wider and darke
than normal grass, and have a slight white fur within them. But the mai
identifier at this time of year is the single seed stalk 40 to 50m
high, with a pair of dark drown seed heads.
So at this present time large areas of lawn are covered with these dar
brown upright seed heads.
Identification is the first priority, but advice to deal with it woul
also be appreciated
