Hi Jackson,

The weed is a winter grass, not sure exactly what type. It will be crowded out by the Buffalo if it's healthy enough. Are there bare patches or any signs of stress in the Buffalo?

Thanks Dave. You are right, it only cam up in a weak spot. I have decided to poison the entire section of lawn with round up as it was getting a good hold on things.

Looks like perennial ryegrass to me.
