Tall fescue is a perennial grass commonly mistaken for crabgrass. It grows in clumps and is wide bladed, and usually grows faster than your Blue or Rye grass. Unfortunately, because it is a grass, our selective herbicides do not control Tall Fescue.
Recommended control is to kill it off in the late summer (with Round-Up or an equivalent) and reseed. If you have any questions about the different types of grasses in your lawn, call us and we can have one of our turf experts come out and identify it.
