Well, if it in clumps with the weeds growing amongst the grasses, the only way really, unfortunately, is to dig up a clump at a time, clean out the weeds and ensure that the soil is also weed-free, then re-plant your grasses. Obviously weed killer is not feasible, and I am assuming that you can't hand-weed the plot with the grasses 'in situ'? Long tedious job, but I can't think of any other way to get rid of the weeds completely.
