Easy way to tell them apart - Green frogs have those raised ridges running down their back behind their eyes (dorso-lateral ridges) Bull frogs don't have them. (so yes, this one is a Green frog)

Green frog.

As BKHpondcritters said, Green frogs have those ridges behind the eyes that go straight down the back on each side.

In my case, the bullfrog is about the size of a kitten! So it's pretty easy to distinguish.

He hasn't really been a nuisance, though. I'm pretty sure he eats my goldfish fry, but I still have at least 20 in my 1,000 gallon pond so he's really helping to keep the population in check.

A few months ago I was walking outside in the dark, wearing flip flops, and felt myself kick something (not hard, just bumped it with my foot). It felt like a half-flat soccer ball or something, which was weird because I don't have any soccer balls!

I turned on the flash light to see what it was... yep, it was this huge bullfrog! lol He was fine, just giving me an offended look like, "sheesh, what'd you do that for?"

He hangs around the pond, but it's in the fenced in back yard where my dogs go so he usually stays pretty well hidden. I'll grab a pic for you the next time I see him, though :)
