  As he suggests, you should rake in the seed because when you do so, it helps protect it from the rain and from drying out as quickly. The easiest way to prevent this is, going forward, put down the new seed based upon the weather forecast. Light rain is perfect, but no rain is better than a lot of rain. Zoysia grass is known for its ability to stand up to heat, drought, heavy foot traffic and a variety of other challenges. In its optimal growing zones, this tough grass can deliver a beautiful, dense lawn with very little input from you. Whether Zoysia is right for you depends on where you live, your lawn care goals, and how you use your lawn.

Grass is a monocotyledon plant, herbaceous plants with narrow leaves growing from the base. A common kind of grass is used to cover the ground in a lawn and other places. Grass normally gets water from the roots, which are located in the ground. The grasses include the "true grasses", of the family Poaceae (also called Gramineae), as well as the sedges and the rushes (). A common problem occurs when people go on vacation. They come home only to find the lawn is over grown due to excessive amounts of rain. The worst thing you could do is to immediately cut the lawn back to it’s normal length. This can cause the grass plants to go into shock.

From our early childhoods, we instinctively come to think of grass in happy, positive terms: grass surfaces can be platforms for children’s games, summer parties or escapes away from urban landscapes. In every season, grass will offer nature’s pleasures to people around the world, and the beauty of Mother Earth – grass-covered lawns, hillsides and prairies will also help prevent erosion. 5. “When dew is on the grass, Rain will never come to pass.” Dew forms when grass gets colder than the dew-point temperature (the temp at which dew forms). At night, grass cools when heat from the ground radiates upward. In a clear, dry atmosphere, this heat escapes .

I discovered 'Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants' by Robin Wall Kimmerer years back through a friend's recommendation.

I finally got around to reading it last week. I thought 'Braiding Sweetgrass' was one whole book. But while reading it, I realized that it is a collection of essays/5.

I very much appreciate the drawings, every grass has at least one page with drawings sometimes of different stages of the life cycle, there is an identification guide in the beginning of the book,and a glossery of terms in the back.
