Grass Species Guide
The world of grasses and grass seed might seem very complicated from the outside. There are estimated to be around 10,000 different grass species on the planet, approximately 160 of which are either native or naturalised in the UK. Of these 160 species, only around 15 are used in grass seed mixtures for lawns, landscaping and sports.
This section gives information on some of the more commonly found grasses in the UK and why they may, or may not be used in grass seed mixtures.
