It looks like winter rye grass.  Some people even plant it intentionally.  


If you don't like it, keep it mowed before it starts to seed (too late in the photo above).  It will take a few years, but it'll eventually die out.  In the meantime, it's not particularly harmful (thought wind blown seeds spread it into the bedding given half a chance).

ultimately, it shouldn't even need that, as the st augustine starts growing again, it will take over when the winter grass goes dormant. 


keeping the deck on your mower as high as you can will result in the st augustine having deeper roots and allow it to overpower pretty much anything when spring hits. if you keep the deck high enough on your mower, you should never need to put down new st augustine.
