I've got a few patches on my lawn that are being invaded by some sort of light green grass. It's growing fine but I prefer the darker color. What can I do to get rid of this?

It's hard to say without knowing the species of grass, if it's even grass; there are plenty of plants that look like grass that's not grass. For example in my area Yellow Nutsedge and Spiderwort kind of looks like grass, but they're not.

Got any close-up pics?

It's definitely grass. See attached pics. This has been going on for a few years. It just keeps spreading out. Noticing some patches in other parts of my lawn as well. It's a nice, full growth but I just don't like the light green color. I prefer dark green much more. I'm wondering if simply over-seeding will work. Have not tried that yet.

Yes, I agree it's all grass, but I can't tell from the pics if this is different species of grass. Maybe a nutrient issue in various parts of your lawn.

It looks like its coming from the next yard. It could be Zoysia grass. If it goes beige after night temps hit the 40s its zoysia.
