Grass Identification

I'm having trouble with grass identification. We have 4 types here in the Carolina, that I'm told. Centipede, St. Augustine, Bermuda and Zoysia. I am having trouble with these. Can someone give me some type of ID guide please? Thanks. I think St. Augustine have larger blades?

OH Boy!!
I grew up in this business...........it just didn't fall into my lap nor did I just decide to start cutting grass. There is some knowledge that goes into starting up this business. You can take the nestea plunge but it will not let you back up without some bumps and bruises.
It is best you do some research online or from your local ag. extension center. Their is a big difference in maintaining bermuda to zoysia and from centipede to st. augustine.
