The biggest attraction of shifting houses for me was the big lawn. I imagined planting the lushest and softest grass and spending a lot of time outdoors. To my amazement, this is not what happened! I bought the best grass seeds to plant and followed all instructions regarding watering, fertilizing, etc., completely.
However, soon another grass took over, which looked coarse and grew faster than the one I planted. I kept trying to remove it but did not have much success. A friend who was visiting saw my lawn and told me that it was Bahia grass. When I read more about it, I realized that this grass was quite aggressive, and I would have to learn how to get rid of Bahia grass fast, or it would take over my lawn.
