I'm not sure what the problem might be with your ficus. Generally, ficus responds the way you describe from overwatering, underwatering, or poorly draining soil.

Control of torpedograss is limited and requires the use of non-selective herbicides followed by resodding to eliminate it from severely infested areas. An alternative is to dig it out, roots and all.
