Hi All wondered if anyone can identify what I need to do to cure my lawn looking like this. I have scarified the area and watered but still have large areas of dry straw like grass

Looks like a type of sedge, or carex. Both produce underground stolons and send up shoots, Tend to be very invasive and crowd out other species....
Is it nice and green earlier in the year with enough rainfall?
These species grow with cool weather and go dormant, to semi dormant, during hot dry summer weather.... is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
