    Is there a site /thred a guy can go to see pics of all the different kinds of grass ? My yard is pretty old (15-20 years) and I want to figure out what all types of stuff is growing in it before I start to redo it. So far I am sure I have at least 6 or 8 different types just by apperance although I dont now any names to ask for when asking for seed. Thanks for the help.

    Take some closeup pics of the grasses and post them on here and we can ID them for ya.

    BTW, I see you are in baldwin ga. I used to live there before we moved about 10 years ago.

    What type grass do you desire to have?
    http://www.ppws.vt.edu/weedindex.htm This site has lots of grass pictures.
    I am going to guess, judging by you location and the fact that your lawn is old and never had much care done to it, that you have a fair amount of common bermuda. That is unless you have lots of shade. Post some pictures and a positive ID can be made. Bermuda is about the easiest grass to single out of a mixed grass lawn with herbicides.
