grass growing on pavement

seems like it could be holcus lanatus

it is downy all over including stem with leaves removed, grey green has only slightly red stripey trousers.

keys out in hubbard as a holcus

however

have difficulty with growth form as it is very thick seems to me like a dense mat as opposed to tufted but i am fairly novice with grasses.

why i doubt my identification: seems to have rhizomes shown in picture however are these stolons.

awn on upper lemma not recurved, there is an ovary in upper floret but it is very small it is pictured next to a lower floret. there are glumes left where a floret has fallen of.
