Look! Korean Grass

Look! Korean Grass

A few blocks up from where we live is this lawn. The grass looks like it's been attacked by a bunch of moles…but it hasn't. (We know. We made our friend stop the car once when we were drunk and we danced on it in our bare feet and discovered that the hills are springy, not hollow.) We've filed it away to use on our own lawn when we finally buy a house...

Zoysia Tenuifolia, also known as Korean grass, is native to Southeastern and eastern Asia. It's usually left unmowed for a free-form, natural look. Extremely slow growing, very fine textured, and wiry, the mounds I love so much are a natural product of its growth. We love that it's drought resistant and low maintenance, perfect for both our rain-parched climate and our lazy-bones self.
