    Kind of looks like St. Augstine to me.

    We could probably give you an accurate id if you'd pick a single grass plant and take a good pic of it and then post that. Otherwise, I'd have to say, from the picture, it does look a bit like St. A.

    Pull 1 grass plant, take the dirt from the roots, taking care not to break them off. Lay this plant on a piece of white paper, and snap a pic from directly above.

    I'm guessing carpet grass.

    Looks like tall fescue to me. Grows in clumps, quite invasive. The cure is Glyphosate.
