Whether you’re growing warm-season or cool-season grasses, you can brush up on your lawn care routine with these quick and easy tips.
By Julie A. MartensMore in Outdoors
Warm-season grasses, including Bahia, Bermuda, centipede, St. Augustine and zoysia spread by runners, above and/or below ground. This enables them to create a thick mat of turf that, when maintained properly, crowds out weeds with ease. The runners also mean that these warm-season grasses make great choices for erosion control. Runner-type grasses grow easily as sod, because the running stems hold the sod pieces together. With Bermuda grass, the runners spread aggressively, and you may see grass shoots appearing in flower beds and other non-lawn areas of your yard. To corral this grass, install a barrier edging that extends into soil to halt the spread of runners.
