    You mean diagnosis by treatment? Or the appearance of success?

    Yikes--- this might be bent grass

    The chemical stopped working, and a grass professional said it looks like BENTGRASS. What should I do? What can I do (myself) ?

    Spray with an everything killer. Wait till it dies then in 2 weeks later plant grass that you want.

    1600 sq. ft. !! Using RoundUp and replacing all the grass would be over $3,000

    Why not use Tenacity ?

    Why not just keep the Bentgrass ?

    I was saying spot treat it and kill the bentgrass you want gone then plant the seed. You do not have to kill everything. But if you like the Tenacity idea try it. I do not like bent frass. It does not grow tall to get a plush grass but to each his own.

    Okay. Will spot test Tenacity tomorrow. Bentgrass is a bit ugly. It forms like a web above ground, seems a lighter green, and the blades are not uniform.

    Thumbs down It may not be an abnormal grass at all !

    A gardener was in the area and he seemed knowledgeable.

    He said the growth is "normal". He thinks it is MEDALLION GRASS. (never heard of it)

    I still will try Tenacity in a small area.
