Hello, I have these patches growing in my front yard, I think its crab grass but I am not sure, I am trying very hard to get my lawn to look plush and green this year but its a struggle. I have these all over the yard and bare spots.

Can someone look at the pic attached and tell me whats the best way to get rid of these?

It's POA annua.
Look up online, I think Ortho came up with a weed killer that kills nutsedge. Ortho nutsedge killer, it also kills POA.
Or you could get a shovel and dig it up. Literally, I'm not kidding.
That stuff is wicked, get rid of it now.
Don't use a weed wacker, just dig it up by the roots.
Your yard isn't that big.

Not poa annul or crabgrass those are clumps of tall fescue. The rest of your yard is bermuda grass, the brown stuff.

So is my best option to dig this up one by one then reseed?

Can you describe the seed stems and seeds (if any)? Can you identify your turf grass?
