What types of bermuda are these?

The first picture is a small corner section in my front yard. I always forget about it but it comes back every spring. The rest of the grass is the second picture which I like much better because it's more mat-like and darker green. Which is which?

No one will be able to tell you. They both look like hybrid Bermuda. They also both look a little thin. What’s you height of cut

They both look thin because I started a crabgrass kill off about a month ago and then used a Sun Joe to remove the dead grass. I filled 2 waste bags, it was a lot of crabgrass. My HOC is about 2 inches and I'm mowing every 3-4 days to encourage the bermuda to come back. It's working, I would go lower but my yard is really uneven (next seasons project) and I don't want to scalp

Do you have a picture of one of the pieces of the grass in the first picture? I ask, because I have bunch of nimblewill in my yard, and it looks like that. A closer look will make sure it is bermuda and not nimblewill though.

Here's a better picture. I think that grass has come from the neighbors yard before the current renters let their yard go to hell. You can see how it has a "finer" look to it
