Should I till my yard and start over from scratch? I have about 3 to 4 different types of grass in my yard. I planted St Augustine to try and let it take over the other grass but to no avail, it didn't work.

Different types of turf will battle it out for several years before one becomes the dominant force and takes over. If you don't like the looks of the battle field, you might want to start all over again. If so, rototill the area, rake out the grassy debris and either lay sod for an instant green lawn, or seed the area. Now's the best time of the year to renovate your lawn. Good luck with your project!
