What type of grass grows in Virginia?
During the summer in Houston Texas, my St. Augustine grass grows about 2 inches a week.
Mulch is a way to eliminate grass growing inMyrtle-planted areas. Specifically, myrtle ( Myrtus communis ) grows to a matureheight and width of 9.8 feet/3 meters each way. Like other shrubsand trees, it is best off with nothing planted underneath it to thedrip line (the furthest that a branch exte…nds on each side). Mulchneeds to be layered 1-3 inches/2.54-7/62 centimeters thick. It willeven ground temperatures, fight grass and weeds, and retain soilmoisture. (MORE)
Because Jehovah made it that way. no because its pretty, lovley, and a mane point in nature. so things can eat it
Grasses grow from the groundlevel up. Roots supply nutrients, and leaves supply ability to collect energy, carbon dioxide and water from the environment. Grasses have a tiny stem from which the leaves emerge, and a low growth-point called an apical meristem. This apical meristem or growth point is w…here each individual leaf originates and grows from, and reaches up to the sun. Some grasses emerge as folded leaves like Orchard grass; others are curled up and uncurl as they lengthn, like brome grass does. Because grasses have such a low growth point is the reason why they are able to not be killed when you cut your lawn. Depending on how far the leaves have progressed, some of the older leaves that are cut will die off only to be replaced by newer ones. Other newer leaves that are cut are still young enough to continue to grow. (MORE)
The types of crops that grow in Virginia are soybeans, corn, wheat,apples, peaches, grapes, strawberries, potatoes, tomatoes, andpeanuts. Virginia was mainly known for Tobacco. And cotton.
I have a book by Ortho for home gardeners, and it has a section on lawns. So I went to Ortho's website and sure enough I found a page about types of grasses:. http://lawncare.ortho.com/index.cfm/event/Article.detail/documentType/basic/category/%2FCategories%2FLawn+Care+Activities/documentId/2e3bb93…c5bc60033f450acaf07192232.

Depends on your area and what you're using the grass for: lawn, hay, or pasture? This question cannot be answered without knowing what the grass in question is being used for.
If your planting grass seed its best to plant it in the fall in September. that way the grass seed doesn't ocmpete with any weeds.. If your planting sod do it early spring or in fall.
Some types tolerate shade better than others. Fescue does well in shade. Go to your local garden center for help.
Covering over newly seeded areas with hay protects the seeds from too much dying out, too much wind and helps keep the ground moist longer. It also tends to keep the birds away from eating the seed. Too much direct sun can burn the seeds and/or bake the soil into hardrock before they sprout. What se…eds need are warmth, soft soil and moisture, which the hay provides. (MORE)
"Grass" is a generic term used to describe a whole range of plants. Normally these are monocotyledonous, creeper-type plants that use stolons or underground stems to reproduce. "Grasses" are extremely versatile and are found growing in almost every corner of the globe. Examples of grasses include:… Bermuda grass Cynodon grasses Stenotaphrum grasses Zoysia sp. Pennisetum grasses Wheat Rice (MORE)
After sowing grass seeds-depending on the weather(sun and rain is a good combination)first signs of growth can be seen after about 7 days.
In most cases, mushrooms are not harmful to an area. Few mushroomscontribute to lawn diseases. However, many people feel thatmushrooms are unattractive. Therefore, they look for a way to killthe fungus. The actual mushroom is simply the fruit of a fungi.Killing the mushroom does not remove--or kill-…-the mycelia causingtheir growth. Taking actions to kill mushrooms does not necessarilymean they will not reappear. These are the different ways ofkilling a mushroom: 1. Reduce the amount of moisture in the area. . Mushrooms thrive in wet soils. . Refrain from, or slow down, the amount of irrigating orwatering you do to the location. 2. Eliminate decaying elements that enhance the growth ofmushrooms. . Remove grass clippings after mowing by raking them with a rakeor using a bag grass catcher on your mower. . Clean up pet waste. . Have tree stumps ground and removed. 3. Increase the amount of light the mushroomsreceive. . Mushrooms grow best in shady areas. . Cut tree limbs or other hindrances that interfere with sunlightgetting to the mushroom-infested area. 4. Create better penetration of moisture and air flow inthe ground. . Consider aerating the ground with an aerator to prevent themushrooms from sitting in a stale, moist environment. 5. Remove the mushrooms from the ground as you see themappear. . Pull, hoe or cut down the mushrooms. . Other mushrooms will likely grow in their place. . Continuous removal will help with the appearance and kill themushrooms that have formed. . Removing mushrooms promptly as they grow, and before theirspores spread, will aid in confining the fungus to 1 area. !!!WARNINGS!!! . Mushroom spores can be blown by the wind from other areas and areinfestation will occur if you do allow the location to becomefungus friendly with moisture, darkness and decay. Do not stop yourpractices once the mushrooms are gone unless you want them toreturn. . Some mushrooms are poisonous. Only experts can distinguish someof the poisonous varieties from edible varieties. Be cautious ifchildren or pets are around wild growing mushrooms. What will you need: . Rake . Mower with grass bag catcher . Aerator . Hoe . Nitrogen fertilizer . Fungicide (MORE)
No it will most likely die since coke is stong enough to clean a toilet is will probably die sooner or later
The most popular crop in VA is hay, for animal feed. Tobacco is still a popular crop, although declining. Virginia also grows wheat, barley, rye, oats, and corn. There are many vineyards and fruit orchards, and growers of fresh vegetables- asparagus, tomatoes, lettuce, potatoes, etc.
In Colonial Virginia, THE big crop was tobacco- although indigo (for dyes) was also grown- along with corn, wheat, oats, barley, etc.
\nIt's "grasses grow" (when talking about multiple kinds of grass) or "grass grows" (when talking about only one kind of grass).
Indian grass will grow in soils from sand to clay. But will grow its best in sand.
In North Carolina, the most common type of grass used is Bermuda. It dies in the winter and turns a dull brownish color, but in the summer, if watered properly and fertilized, it makes a beautiful green landscape. It is also useful in North Carolina because of the frequent droughts, because watering… is not needed in the winter and it requires less water than other popular grasses such as fescue. (MORE)
With the exception Bermuda grDuring the spring and summer months,grass clippings can occupy up to 50 percent of a yard's totalcuttings. Most homeowners quickly realize that their bin orcomposting system can not handle the entire lawn. The followinginformation will help you better understand how to r…ecycle grassclippings. The catchy word that describes the whole new movement to educatehomeowners about composting and recycling their grass clippings isgrasscycling. So, let's start there. GRACULÃ Forget rooted beliefs that grass clippings left on the lawn smotherthe grass underneath or cause straw. Grass clippings are reallygood for the lawn. From now on, do not put your lawn clippings onthe lawn: "grass cycle". The lawn bike is a simple and easy opportunity for every owner todo something good for the environment. Grasscycling is aresponsible environmental practice and an opportunity for allhomeowners to reduce their waste. And the best part is that ittakes less time and energy to bag and drag this grass on thesidewalk. Like the man in the photo on the left, he could even takehis lawn cuts for a bike ride on Sunday; Now, it's the recycling ofgrass taken to the extreme! Grasscycling, in short, is to leave grass clippings on the lawn oruse them as mulch. Grass clippings contain more than 80% water, sothey decompose quickly and naturally release nitrogen and othernutrients into the grass and soil, improving the quality of thegrass. Grass clippings add a mulch that saves water and promotesnatural soil aeration through earthworms. Benefits of grasscycling Without bagging or raking the lawn (Wow!) Plastic lawn bags do not end up in the dump 50% of your lawn's fertilizer needs are met, reducing time andmoney spent on fertilizer Less polluting: reduces the need for fertilizers, pesticides andherbicides This is not straw, making the lawn vigorous and sustainable It makes you feel good and all green! Yahoozy! lawnscape Not only does this help maintain your lawn, but it canalso reduce the cutting time by 50% because you do not have to pickit up later. Leaving clippings on the lawn also reduces the loss ofwater by evaporation and reduces the need for fertilization. To mowthe lawn properly, cut the grass when it is dry and always keep theblades of the lawn trimmer sharp. More tips to maximize the benefits of grass clippings on your lawn: Do not remove more than 1/3 of the blade surface at each cut. Mow when the lawn is dry. Use a sharp blade. A blunt mower blade crushes and pulls off thegrass plant, resulting in an irregular and tarnished appearance atthe end of the blade. Air your lawn In the spring, rent an aerator that removes thecarrots from the lawn. This opens the soil and allows more movementof water, fertilizer and air by increasing the decomposition rateof grass clippings and improving the growth of deep roots. Water carefully if necessary. During the driest period of summer,turf requires at least one inch of water every five to six days. Make sure to follow the correct lawn care program for your lawntype.ass, it will root if given enough moisture in the dirt. (MORE)
Yes, there is grass in West Virginia. Just like there is grass inall 49 other states.
Your average lawn grass cannot grow in the desert because it would simply starve of dehydration. Many grasses that are unable to establish deep root systems quickly during the short rainy season will perish; those that are able to establish a deep root system, are often of the more coarser, hardy va…rieties than those found on lawns in in the prarie. (MORE)
In order to be considered turf grass, it usually grows to be less than 6" tall.
Herbicide meant for grasses, dog urine, drought, clipping too close too often, too high application of fertilizer, lack of adequate sunlight, etc.
Yes, most definately. Loam is the best soil to grow any plant in, grass or no.
Grass seed is the reproductive method of most grasses, so grass produces seeds which when sown produce new plants.
Yes but it takes alot of time, you need to walk instead of run... and plant lots of trees and flowers! hope this helps!
Grass usually needs a lot of sunlight, therefor it is not extremely common in tropical rainforests. Small amounts of long grasses may grow along bodies of water in a rainforest. Also, there are natural clearing in all jungles, and grasses thrive here. Bamboo is quite common in jungles worlwide, and …it is considered a grass. (MORE)
When there is adequate warmth, sunlight and moisture available, which is primarily from spring to fall.
Yes, there are a number of species of grass that grow in deserts around the world. Grasses are, perhaps, one of the most common forms of desert vegetation.
They grow at depths that allow them enough light to photosynthesize. They use sunlight and dissolved carbon dioxide and release oxygen the way land plants do, using this same process. To grow, develop, and propagate, they use the other nutrients and chemicals made available by currents and the detri…tus that continuously falls all over the ocean floors. (MORE)
No grass seed grows weeds, grass grows grass. The weeds that are popping up have most likely been there in seed form before you broadcasted grass seed on your lawn.
Grass can grow in Antarctica but only in small amounts and it is very rare to be seen.
We'll according to my research you can grow grass with water, it is the same thing with plants, plants use water to grow like grass. A you think, you probably know that you think that this is wrong, but truly it isn't. water is a great energy source that gives creatures, and living things energy.
A grass plant's ultimate goal is to grow up, put up aninflorescence, have it pollinated, then as it dies, allows thoseseeds to be spread by wind or animal life. Daughter tillers lie inwait for the next perfect set of growing conditions to grow again,either later in the year, or same time next year. …When a grass is grazed or mowed prior to reaching that ultimategoal, it is forced to go back to "square one" and start regrowthagain to make another attempt to that ultimate life-goal of a grassplant. This is primarily why grasses will grow after grazing. The other reason grasses will grow after grazing is because of theenvironmental conditions still supporting its ability to do so:Sunlight, good soil temperature, adequate moisture, active microbesin the soil giving it the nutrients it needs in exchange for extraliquid carbon, the works. Once those conditions become less thangood for growing, a grass plant will slow growth down to a crawl,like molasses in winter. But the key for grazing is to graze a grass plant before it hasboth reached maturity and just before it has started to push up aninflorescence. Doing so gives good quality for the livestock, andthe necessary boost needed to get that grass to grow back oncethose animals have taken the single bite that needs to be takenfrom that plant before being moved on. This, folks, is what good grazing management is pretty well allabout. (MORE)
"They" don't grow any type of grass in rainforests. Whichever type grows there, grows naturally.
Well, that's a simple question with a complicated answer. Plants require a number of "inputs" in order to grow. Most importantly, Carbon dioxide (CO2), light and water. They also require an appropriate temperature (this temperature ranges and varies depending on the plant) in order to metabolize …these inputs to turn them into a usable source of energy. (The human body does the same thing... but uses much more complex mechanisms) I'm assuming you are living in a warm climate where the grass does in fact grow year round (but slows down in the winter)... or perhaps it goes brown and "dormant" in the winter. Both are the physiological response to an environmental trigger within the plant. This is most likely a result of cooler temperatures, shorter exposure to sun (shorter days), and a poorer light angle (the earth tilts, and the light hits the plant at a different angle). (MORE)
Yes it is. It's a warm-season grass (or a C4 grass) that is best grown in warmer climates, and is commonly used in the South as a pasture/hay grass for livestock.
it depends. Warm season grasses--bermuda grass as an example goes dormant and stops growing in the winter months. while cool season grasses (kentucky blue grass/rye/fescue) go dormant and stop growing in the summer months. Growth may slow at other times of the year, but it does not actually stop unl…ess the lawn/grass is dormant. Dormancy is part of the natural life cycle of grass. (MORE)
Plenty of sun and water but make sure you are not on water restrictions or you will be waisting water!
The dead grass cannot grow back as it is dead, but regrowth may occur from seed.
if i can remember correctly, it takes a few weeks, you plant the seeds(not covering them) and wait. so not very long i guess.
Yes. Grass growing on the sidewalk is bad because it is more than likely weeds, clovers, or ivy. Take care of it right away before it grows so much that it covers the entire sidewalk, your house, and eventually it will spread to cover the entire world!!! :>
The Savannah forms the transition between the dense forests of the Congo Basin and the scanty vegetation of the Sahara Desert. The small amount of rain in this region is not sufficient for tall trees to grow. Grass grows well here. Short trees are distributed across the Savannah.
Young polar bears need your help, if we don't then the whole world will collapse. Btw, elephants don't grow grass. They're frikkin elephants. Btw, fun fact from the Hockey Tournament today (Go Eagles! I know Leyla and I were beautiful commentators!), elephants are the only mammal with four knees. (Y…ou already knew that one, Matt). (MORE)
yes there are some plants like seaweed, moss, algae, and even rice that are categorized as grasses that grow very well in water.
I am biologist from brazil. In my studies i concered that is several specific common types of grass. There is sweet grass, grassipotimus ( Herbiculous matucilo ) and just common grass ( Grassitopia Potato ) and tall grass where what people have told me wild pikachu's live.
You could lay sod, but make sure it is wet sod. The sod dries up easily if its roots are not wet. You could also try seed grass there is no guarantee that it will grow but make sure you keep it watered. I would recommend sod it is easy and make i look real, nice and green
Any patch of dirt with no opaque block above it (so only air, leaves etc) will grow grass after a while. If any block is covering it, blocking out the sun, then the block will remain dirt.
The Great Barrier Reef is a marine biome, so the only grass that grows there is seagrass, which is not a true grass. There are 15 known species of seagrass in the Great Barrier Reef.
