What types of grasses are these

csh8428(7)May 10, 2012

I am in the process of figuring out what grasses will and will not grow in my yard.I bought the house 3 years ago and am now starting to get to the yard makeover. The yard is mostly clay

My backyard(about .6 acre) is half full sun and half partial shade(high pine trees in Southern part of yard). The first pic is of grass that grows like crazy in the partial shade, but not so well in the full sun.


The 2nd pic is of the grass that grows mildly in the full sun.


The 3rd pic is actually of the grass that covers most of my front yard that is mostly shaded through the day by various trees. It never grows very tall :)
