It probably is a grass species. There are many grass varieties. Take some and go to your local nursery. They are bound to be able to advice you what it is and what to do with it. Perhaps someone is coming up from underneath, hair of his head? LOL.

I have encountered this in my garden when cats have not buried their poo very deeply and as it decomposes hair grows from it like a mould. The vet says it happens because cats have alot of hair in their bowels from grooming which goes into the soil. If you dig it up you might find this is what it is. Of course it may not be this at all but it sounds very much like what I have had happen in my garden!
