Question Grass Identification?

Do any of you know what type of grass this is? Is it a native grass or just weeds? When we bought our place last August they had just had 17 trees raken out and a bunch of grading done so the yard was pretty much diet. The previous owner had seeded with Zoysia grass but I think most of the seed burned up. Whatever this is, is coming back strong with a little Bermuda mixed in. I thought I was going to have to sod but it has taken off pretty good.

It's a cool season, so it won't last much longer.

Poa annua is more a weed than a grass. The only way to get rid of it is wiping it with gly or using a pre-emergent. Probably take a couple years to get it all.

My dad always called it goose grass. Good grazing for livestock this time of year.

Yes, those annuals produce tons and tons of seeds.

Yes itís Poa Annua or annual blue grass. For now I would mow weekly and the warm temperatures will knock it out soon enough. This is an annual weed so the best method of control is an application of Pre-emergent herbicide in the fall mid September. In lawns that are full sun and without irrigation I am seeing Poa in decline already.
