Grass Types Growing And Picture Guide

Written by Hilary on November 20th, 2008

In order to get a jump on next year’s lawn care needs, we just finished a comprehensive guide, that includes great pictures, detailing all the different grass types so you can grow that perfect lawn.

For some of you, now is a great time to start seeding and establishing a lawn, others will have to wait a few more months, but whenever the weather is perfect for you, the information is here.

When you want that perfect lawn, keep two very impportant things in mind:

1. Know your climate variations. When you know what the climate is like in your area, you can better choose a grass that will do well for you.

2. Honestly assess what you are going to use your lawn for.

Will it be used for the kids and a play area?
Will it be used as a sports field?
Will it be used simply for looks around your garden area?
Will it have pets on it?
Will you be parking on it?

Once you have thought about it, then you can combine your two most important requirements: your climate and your needs, and choose the grass that matches best.

The following chart lists some of the major grasses:
