unwanted grass

I fear that my small lawn was seeded with a grass seed which contained ?couch grass!  When I took over the house six years ago the lawn grass was four foot high and had to be strimmed.  Since then, although the lawn looks fine, couch grass has invaded the borders too.  I have tried glyphosate, digging it out, removing plants over winter etc.  Every summer up it comes again.

Is the answer to kill off the lawn (I assume the runners are under it) and re seed or turf it?   Help!!  Jane
