Our lawn leaves much to be desired - initially it was laid down with 'Pearl grass', which was a bad idea; it did not survive well in the sun, and grew too slowly to recover from any setbacks. Eventually, the whole lawn became a vast sea of weeds.
So, we've laid down patches of Philippine lawn grass - it grows quite fast, is hardy, and looks quite OK.
It's done all right, spreading slowly. And now it is seeding At least I hope it is! I've been wringing my brain trying to work out whether these things are weeds or the good stuff. Initially I was pulling up this whenever it was growing to seed, but I recently remembered this diagram a reader had pointed out to me (picture from Aggie Horticulture ) and it seems like it I should be letting it grow. This is the full plant with seeds - the leaves look similar, but it seems to grow straight out of the ground without being part of the stolons.
Can anyone confirm for me? Should I be weeding or nurturing? Laying on a little vermicompost or something? :)
