How do I get Burmuda grass out of my Marathon grass lawn?

15 years ago

We live in the Los Angeles area and had Marathon grass sod put in about 9 years ago. Last year I noticed Burmuda grass growing in a corner of the back yard. Is there anything I can do to get rid of it? Will it eventually take over the yard? We also have lots of crabgrass growing and I wonder if I use crab grass killer to spray on it, if this will also brown out or kill the marathon grass around it? Thanks!

PS. A neighbor told me that if we a gardner, that the grass and weeds from the other people's yards that they mow, gets 'seeded' into out yard from their mower. Is that right?
