What kind of lawn do I have?

This is my backyard lawn. I'm hoping that these pictures will help with identifying what type it is. For reference, I am in East Sacramento/West Carmichael area, 95821.

Unfortunately about 30% of the backyard lawn has been overrun by bermuda grass (YUCK) and I'd like to eradicate that and get this type of grass everywhere. Our house was vacant for a year and a half, so I'm not sure how long the bermuda was in the lawn etc. I'd like to ID this grass and hopefully treat the areas with bermuda. Tahnks for your help!

(ignore the weeds, I'm working on learning proper organic lawn care)

Probably the best source of information for you would be the people at your local office of the University of California Cooperative Extension Service.

Here is a link that might be useful: UC CES
