Grass (Lawn Grass)
  • The small circular lawn in the nursery's garden is a Zoysia grass. This type of grass is suitable for hot climates, and tolerates poor sandy soil which is common in Bahrain. It grows well in sun and semi-shade under trees, especially well in the hot summer months. It produces a dense, thick, cushiony turf which prohibits weed growth when well established. Sprigs or plugs planted on a well prepared level ground will produce a good lawn in a year. Strict attention to weeding should be paid while it is establishing. Trays of grass, ready to plant, are available at the nursery in the early summer months.
