First, what is a grass? A grass is a plant with specialized reduced flower parts. There are 10,000 grass species in the world. The most important ones feed us, wheat and rice, for example. Grasses are used for heavy construction, for example, bamboo, a grass. Grasses are used for ornamental purposes, as well as utility

There are two groups of grasses, cool-season and warm-season. Cool-season grasses such as Kentucky bluegrass, tall fescue, and perennial ryegrass are important in temperate areas but have problems growing in warm climates. The cool-season grasses have a special method of carbon dioxide fixation (carbohydrate synthesis) and function poorly at high temperature.

Four warm-season grasses, bahiagrass, bermudagrass, St. Augustinegrass, and zoysiagrass are grown widely. Usually one will provide adequate turf for almost any situation in warm and subtropical areas, given adequate water and not too much shade. The altenatives (centipedegrass, buffalograss and others) do well in particular niches. For example, centipedegrass performs well in Florida’s Panhandle, probably because of the unique heavier soil type there. Buffalograss performs well in the mountains and deserts of western North America, even as far as Canada.
