Notes:

I came home from vacation and my back yard was overgrown. Is this my bermuda grass trying to reseed or have I been overrun by grab grass? If crabgrass what do I do?

    Can you show a close-up of the grass?

    Any seed spikes to show?

    Yes there are seed spikes and I have a close up picture but don’t know how to add it to the post?

    I’d guess poa annua… Annual bluegrass.

    It’s just bermuda…

    I disbelieve that you are going to be seeing the poa much longer… once that bermuda (hate that stuff!) greens up…

    Lawn care peeps would tell you to put down a pre-emergent in the autumn, but I can’t hardly see the point.

    The modern turf lawn is nothing but an ecological desert with nothing to offer the wildlife…

    Seems that the more varied plants that we can encourage in the yard… the better off we’ll be.

    I think that patches of mint, Verbena rigida, Oenothera speciosa, yarrow, Chrysogonum virginianum… totally improve the front yard… you’re just gonna mow it anyway…

    Add in some white clover and some violets… Much improved… Leave out the turf… and then we’re talking!
