TYPES OF LAWN GRASS FOR LANDSCAPING

TYPES OF LAWN GRASS BEST SUITABLE FOR YOUR LAWN 

Lawn is a natural green carpet which is the basics of landscaping and a garden . 
without a lawn grass the idea of garden is never complete . It harmonises the  with surroundings and provides a natural green colour . Their are mainly two types grasses used in lawn according to need . Here i am listing the advantages and disadvantages of these two lawn grass which are generally used in landscaping .

  1.  Bermuda grass - (Cynodon dactylon)commonly called as doob grass  . It is commonly used in lawns due to its fast growth and hardiness . It requires less water  and responds positively to frequent mowing . It is highly suitable for large areas and playgrounds as it is very tolerant to wear and tear , it heals or recuperate faster if damage occurs as it is sensitive to frost , but the damage occurred gets recovered or regrows very quickly from the rhizomes when the soil gets warm  just after the last frost date , in my personal experience I have observed application of  40 to 50 grams per square meter area of ( 3 parts of Calcium ammonium nitrate , 1 part of super phosphate , one part of potassium sulphate )  two times a year once between winters and one just at the begging of spring keeps the lawn grass healthy .                                                                                                                                                                                             
  2. Korean grass -( Zoysia japonica) . commonly called as manilla grass or Korean velvet .It is native to japan , Korea and Philippines hence the name is given  . these grasses are now introduced to the other parts of the world . it has became very popular due to its soft turf formation and symmetrical growth pattern it is cold tolerant and does not gets damaged due to frost .Korean grass spreads and makes cushions like a turf .these are highly suitable for small areas and home lawn . water requirement is little more as compared to bermuda grass , one of the dis advantage of  this type of grass is they are very hard to mow . hence clipping should be done with the help of a garden pruner . It is a slow grower hence not suitable for sports grounds and big areas .
