Lawn Maintenance around the world is basically the same depending on the type of turf grasses growing. The two (2) main types of turf grasses include Cool Season Turf grasses and Warm Season Turf grasses.
Cool Season Turf grasses include grasses such as Rye grass, the different Fescue grasses like Tall Fescue, and Kentucky Blue Grass. All these grasses are grown from seed into a single stem plant. Cool season turf is grown from seed by turf suppliers and growers, and can be installed as turf rolls. If the turf has suffered any damage or thinning out, the lawn area can be over sown with the same grass seed to increase density of the turf grass. It is important to understand the germination characteristics of different seed varieties and when is the best time to spread the seed for best seed germination results.
Warm Season Turf grasses are different from Cool Season grasses in that the warm season grasses have above ground runners called Stolons. There is another group of Warm Season grasses that also are different again in that they are also built with below ground runners called Rhizomes.
These grasses (including Kikuyu, Couch/Bermuda, Zoysia, Seashore Paspalum and Durban) with both stolons and rhizomes are characterized by their robust nature and rate of recovery in Springtime. In particular, Kikuyu and Couch grasses are used widely in sports field situations, and as such can be mowed quite short depending on the turf grass’s use.
