@Deepsouthlawnz crabgrass, and lots of it. Some quinclorac would help, but beware using it in high temperatures. Your best bet is a good pre-emergent application in March.

I thought crabgrass lays flat and shows purple around the base....?

Is this the dreaded nutsedge everyone is always talking about? Interestingly, I'm only noticing it along the lawn's border with the street.

And what's this big ole boy on my neighbors side? She has quite a few of them and they look ready to attack my pre-em.

@Kamauxx - no sir, nutsedge will look very similar to that kyllinga/annual sedge that your neighbor seemingly has in their yard. They’re part of the same family weed, the sedges.

Oh great, I thought I had an easy one. Any idea what those are in my yard? Google Lens is telling me it's fescue, but I just don't see how that could be.

I have huge patches of this through my yard which is at a house I just bought. Trying to fix the yard from years of terrible upkeep. Trying to find the best solution for all of this. I have certainty and celsius but still trying to learn what weed is what. Any help appreciated! I mowed one day before this photo if that helps.

@bluemarvel74 I don't see any crabgrass in your pictures. I do see what looks like some nutsedge, but start with cutting the grass and that should help make it easier to identify what all is there.
