Ugly Lawn, Different Grass Types, Need help


My wife and I built a home on an old farm field. The field was previously used for haylage so I expect the plant type I am battling might be alfalfa? but I am not sure.

Either way, the photos below show dark green grass and the lighter colored grass is what I am battling. I have tried more grass seed and weed and feed trying to get it to blend in but to no avail.

When we built the home the area where the dark green color is, is where we had new grade and thus had to plant new grass. The lighter colored grass is what existed before we built.

Please help me blend this in and get my lawn to a dark green, healthy lawn!

The only quick solution is to kill it all and start over with new sod or seed. If you have the seed for the grass you like, you could kill the other and seed where that was but it might take a year or two to match.
