You will really need to positively identify the weed before you can control it. Dallas Grass is a tall South American perennial grass (Paspalum dilatatum) grown for pasturage in the southern United States. It is a bunching grass.

Take a sample to your local cooperative extension office, Master Gardener Clinic or even a well staffed nursery. Helpful folks there can identify the weed and suggest controls, based upon the type of turfgrass you are growing.
