    Does anyone have pictures of the different types of grasses out there? Bermuda, Zyosia (sp?) etc? It would help if they were side by side or better yet a few good close ups. I'm trying to figure out what most of my lawns are. Thanks

    I would imagine you have a lot of blue grass in that area - Here is a pic of my yard (blue grass)

    Expert, if you really want to know what grasses you have, pictures will be no help. Pluck a few of the plants you want to identify, and bring them to your computer with a magnifying glass. You need to use a Turfgrass ID key. That one also will help you to learn the nomenclature of parts of the grass plants.
