    If you are handed a single grass blade from a lawn in your area, can you identify the grass type?

    of course. knowing what kind of grass you are dealing with is as important as knowing what kind of weed or pest you are dealing with.

    what's your point?

    This might be the wrong forum for that question, we are more grass cutters here,we don't know nuthing bout grass xcept is has to be cut. Broadleaf and fescue type grass...sorry just kidding, but I don't think this the correct forum.

    Ofcourse. I wouldn't be much of a grass man if I could not identify it...

    Yes... this is the right forum. It's not lawn mowing. It's lawn care.

    It's easy to destroy a lawn - say fescue, by fertilizing it at some bag rates.

    Glad to see a few of you know your vernation, auricles and ligules.

    there are two types of grass broad leaf mix and thin leaf mix. :)





    I think if you handed me a blade of grass I could identify it, there only 6 types of grass around here
