|There are selective weed killers, however based on your description I am not certain if the weed is actually a grass or if it might be something else such as nutsedge which is much more difficult to control. I would suggest you consult with your local Cornell county extension to get a specific identification of the weed and then based on knowing that, determine how to proceed. They will have the most up to date information on what herbicides are available for homeowner use and professional use in your state.
