How does grass grow?



  1. 0 Votes

    Grass plants have fibrous roots that extend down into the earth serving the dual purpose of collecting water and nutrients and structurally anchoring the plant to the ground.  The culms, or, stems, grow from the crown, or, base, of the plant.  Leaves grow out of the culms, consisting of a sheath (the lower portion) and a blade (the upper portion) connected by a membrane called a ligule.  The green color comes from chlorophyll.  Grass is sustained by photosynthesis.

    Sunlight, water and quality of soil are the main three variables that will determine how healthy your grass will be. The amount of water the grass will need will depend on the amount of sunlight it gets. Sunlight plays a huge role in photosynthesis, which provides grass the needed energy to draw water and nutrients from the soil. The health of soil will also play a factor because that is where basically your soil lives. A balanced pH level in the soil is important for a healthy living environment for grass. A pH level measures acid to alkaline levels and optimal pH levels for grass is between 6.5 and 7.o with 14 being the highest alkaline level and 1.0 being the highest acid level. If the water is too wet the acid composition will be too high and if the soil is too dry then it will carry a higher level of alkaline that isn’t ideal for grass.
