Do you feel enthusiastic about going outside to make your lawn the greenest, lushest on the block every time you see a well-kept lawn on TV? The truth is, the type of grass in your lawn can make a big difference in making the lush-lawn dream a reality. This is mainly because all turfgrasses aren’t alike. They can be warm-season grasses like zoysia, Bermuda, and buffalo grass or cool-season grasses like Kentucky bluegrass, fescue, and perennial ryegrass. Each type of grass has its own set of challenges. However, identifying the type of grass on your lawn is crucial for several reasons.
