What is the name of this weed? #344291

Asked July 18, 2016, 4:31 PM EDT

I have this chuck of weeds in my lawn. This section of the lawn is very sunny, in between 2 houses so it gets water rain off. If i cut my lawn in just a few days it grows back, it's brighter green than the rest of the grass. I don't know how to treat it. hoping you can help.

This looks like a grassy weed but we cannot accurately identify it. Identifying features include seed heads, etc. and Mowing removes this.
Any post emergent grass herbicide should control this grassy weed. Once you control this weed, you will have bare spots,  so be prepared to overseed and fertilize in the fall.
