    Hi everyone, a newbie stumble here trying to figure how did my grass start to grow roots in the form of a vine? I can' t fine any site that can identify this grass or weed, so I come to the experts.
    So far I have found it creeping into my front flower garden and I have pretty much been pulling it out by hand. I'm not sure where it came from either since it looks like the rest of the grass till I go to pull it. Also, I live in central NJ if that helps. Any advice or theories will be a great help ;);)

    Welcome to the forum, and welcome to the wonderful world of Bermuda grass!
    It is very invasive, although a good lawn grass. Pulling by hand works, and having some sort of barrier for your flower gardens helps. We have a 1' trench around our flower gardens, which gives us a place to chop off the runners with a spade, and then pick up the runners and put them on the compost pile.
    Someone else may have better advice (at least I hope so) so keep your options open!
