Bent Grass grows mainly in poor drainage or Wet soil

Keep it or Remove it that is the question:

Keeping it:  Requires everyday watering, a lawn disease program, or simple let it go dormant, it will green up when favorable weather.  It’s best seasons Fall or spring.  Which there is a lot of rain and 60 degrees cool weather.

Removing it: Before making a decision considerate Bent Grass grows best in poor drainage soil. Improving the soil drainage is a must because other grasses don’t like this environment & Bent Grass will come back.  For this reason if drainage is a problem better off to leave Bent grass on those areas.

Late summer or early spring is the time to control it & seed.
