I just moved into a relative's house in Sydney and the backyard is a disaster. There is some unusual grass that is invading that I haven't seen before.
I looked at http://thelawnguide.com.au/lawn-care/lawn-varieties.html but it doesn't appear that the grass is similar to anything listed. I don't think it is a lawn grass, but some weed that has grown thickly.
Apparently it has not been raining for a few months now and I noticed that the pest is drying up. How do I go about removing it as the roots seem to be very deep from my experience with a large shovel. You can find some extra photos at http://s1277.photobucket.com/user/evilgrasscorporation/library/ I'm not what types of photos I need to post but I might add to it later if requested.
I also found it weird but there are whole patches where my relatives have been growing vegetables and those patches seem to be immune.
