green patches in lawn
I have been noticing some bright green patches in my lawn since early april. They started rather small and i initially thought it might be from dog urine. the patches always seemed to grow a little faster than the rest of the lawn. They have gotten slightly larger as of late and have spread a bit. I power raked my lawn last week and after doing so these patches seemed to be thinning out. will this grass die off?is it a disease? I want to post pics and i will once my battery charges up for my camera.thanks

I live in Massachusetts. Im not sure but am guessing its a mix of rye,fescue and bluegrass. The grass in photo 2 was pulled from one of these patches. Hope this helps.

Investigate "poa trivialis" and "poa annua." Do the neon patches appear in the fall?

does it grow taller than the other grass... if so it could be nutsedge. ortho makes a product for that but it could harm your other grass.
