Q.I Have A Grassy Question
I hope it’s ok to ask a grass question here. I have grassy vegetation growing in bare earth areas of my yard. In flower beds, raised vegetable gardens, along landscape borders, almost anywhere it finds opportunity (just like weeds). It looks like grass, it starts as a very small clump, the roots are very dense and not too deep, no taproot, or traveling rhizomes, only gets a few inches tall, seeds quickly, it’s very hardy in any soil type. and the sparse clumps become thick and dense in no time. I thinks it must spread by it’s seeds. Here are some pictures, what is it? If this question is inappropriate for this site, can you let me know that? or maybe you know a better site to ask this. I appreciate any help the kind participants here can offer. Thanks so Much.

That looks like Sclerochloa dura or related. Hardy grasses of this invasiveness are best controlled with direct application of glyphosate.
