Dear Walter Reeves,

I want my lawn to be populated by grass, but after a while of no treatments these wild grass inhabit more of my lawn.

Do you know the name of this wild plant, and if so, how should I proceed to eliminate them.

    Looks like your have some crabgrass and annual Jewgrass. Sounds like at some point you stopped treating your lawn. Unfortunately with annual weeds the battle never ends. A short hiatus of a year might allow a few weeds but anymore time will certainly invite a weedy lawn. I would guess in New York state you would be growing a cool season lawn. Seeding time is just around the corner. Check this link with Cornell University for some state specific info on turf care. http://www.hort.cornell.edu/turf/
    Oh yes, resume treating your lawn! PreEmergents applied at the proper time in 2012 will go a long way in keeping your lawn populated with a desirable turf type.
