Bunch Grass

Cool-season grasses, like the fescues and ryegrass, are bunch grasses. A lawn of fescue is actually a host of individual grass plants that, as they grow, form bunches. These bunch grasses are most often sown from seed. Bunch grasses don’t naturally hold together in the form of sod, unless the sod grower uses a biodegradable net at planting time. The net holds the bunches together, enabling the grass to be harvested, rolled and installed as sod. One cool-season grass, Kentucky bluegrass, is not a bunch grass but spreads by runners.
