Well I do know it's nice in the winter months because you can use the clustered grass mats like stepping stones instead getting your boots stuck in the mud. I was just reading about it. I guess is a love it or not kind of grass.Yes it likes water. We get enough precipitation that it will grow everywhere here. It doesn't actually like to be mowed like a lawn. I've pushed it back by mowing in some spots. This is just an awkward spot that requires the trimmer. I'm thinking of putting rubber mats down and finish putting that greenhouse together.
