Bahia Grass

Posted

A hard-wearing, coarse-textured grass with soft leaves. It is used in some low maintenance situations and at airports. The grass is slow to establish from seed but once established, it out-competes other more desirable turf species due to its robust root system and dense mat of stolons and rhizomes. In southern Queensland, bahia grass is the major perennial grass weed species in parks and urban open space areas, where it requires frequent mowing during summer to remove the numerous seed heads up to 60 cm tall. Bahia grass shows poor shade tolerance, and is damaged by a number of herbicides safe to use on other warm-season turf species.

Fescue Clumps

Posted

Fescue clumps are long-lived, clump-forming perennial grass producing broad, coarse leaves up to 18 inches tall that will persist throughout the year unless the summers are too dry, when it may go dormant. Cool-season grasses such as tall fescue resume vegetative growth in the fall and remain green over winter, though they only make wintertime growth when the soil temperature is above 40 degrees. In late spring, the clumps flower and send up a number of 3-foot-long flowering spikes, which produce the seeds.
