A little while ago I had a few patches on my lawn and stupidly put ryegrass seed in those areas, and obviously, it's grown too long and spoils the look of the lawn.
TBO the lawn is not like a bowling green (far from it:rolleyes:), but I wondered how/if the ryegrass can be rectified in some way without major surgery?

Some herbicides impact certain grasses but it can be very situational. For example, you failed to mention the type of other grasses. Lets assume warm season grasses. There are hormones that kill cool grasses but will not kill st aug, burmuda, centipede or zoysia

Hi. I'm here in the UK. Having been there and done that regarding turf culture etc. Here in the UK, sowing rye grass is not generally a practice for the home garden. Yes! lawn seed mixtures here often contain rye. For instance playing areas and sports fields. A typical seed mix might be. Rye, Yorkshire fog, Canadian brown top. The inclusion of rye grass is for wear and tear. It is a tough species, and will be a problem in the average garden. Heavy commercial like mowing is needed.
