What is this strange grass in my back yard
 
Since my lawn has started coming back to life I have had all these patches of grass that grow much faster than the rest and start to turn yellow at the top once they grow so high. I have around 15-20 of these in my back yard. They feel slightly rubbery also. Anyone know? Thanks.

Here is what it is, for sure, trust me.

the ONLY way to get rid of them is to dig them up, carefully getting all the tiny bulbs:yes:

Cool thanks. I dug them all up today. What a crazy weed.

Looks like wild onion and/or wild garlic. Very stubborn weed to get rid of. I had good success with a product called Image which targets them, but it is quite expensive. It will spread rapidly if not addressed.
