    Hey Guys,

    I've been toying over either re-seeding or throwing down Bermuda sod in my front yard.
    I reside outside of Birmingham, AL...so it gets mighty hot & humid during the summer months.
    Before I invest in either of these options, I took note of what's growing thick and hearty in my yard, yet it's a grass I'm unfamilar with.
    If I can find the seeds for this I can match my current grass and seed it into bare spots.
    Currently this grass covers about 85% of my yard.
    If no one can ID by my pics, where could I send some clipping samples to and obtain a positive ID?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You're doing it wrong. Spend money on ported saws!!!!!!!!! Not grass:sifone:

    My theory on grass is if it holds the dirt down I'm happy.

    Crab grass for sure, A very sorry type of grass, but if you want it to spread just water and fertilize it .

    Hello Reggie Turner,

    The weed is crabgrass. The attachment will list some herbicides to control the weed.


    Thank you!

    If it's green and fluffy let it be. Spend that money on saws;)
