    I may get laughed at but my guess is this -- if you like crab grass -- that's what it looks like.

    Tall fescue I think. I've got some in my own yard and it'll look like a weed in bluegrass or fine fescue lawns because of its coarse texture and rapid growth.

    No it isn't Bermuda but I think nmez21 may be right about tall fescue. About mid-July this type of grass and Dalis grass really start trying to take over my Bermuda.

    I stand corrected if this variety is not one of the crab grasses.

    Looks like tall fescue to me...but I could be wrong as well. Wait until bermuda is completely dormant (Middle of winter) and spot treat with Round Up, you may want to brush on the leaves to make sure you dont get any on bermuda if not completely dormant. It may take several applications to completely rid your bermuda of this grass.

    I think you right, notice the red root base to the left of the pic. It really looks like all weeds with crab grass and there seems to be a small oak tree at the bottom of the pic. I am not being rude, but that is what it seem to look like.

    Nothing would surprise me, to say I am disappointed in the landscape job by the builder is a understatement.

    Most of the picture appears to be tall fescue, but there is crabgrass (or goosegrass or dallisgrass) to the left center. I can also see about 3 different broadleaf weeds.
