Bermuda Grass (or Dog’s Tooth Grass) is an invasive species and the most well known weed in the world. It is very competitive and presents an extensive root system, which can grow up to 2 meters deep. It is also used in lawns in warm climates because of its high resistance to trampling.
Timothy grass is a spontaneous perennial, tall plant (80-140 cm). It is one of the most common grasses and one of the main food sources for most animals. The timothy grass is very resistant to low temperatures and acidity, it prefers damp and cold, without sudden changes in temperature. It lives in neutral to acidic land, not too sandy or dry, and it can not survive prolonged drought conditions.
Kentucky Blue Grass, also known as Smooth Meadow-grass or Common Meadow-grass, is an extremely common herbaceous plant that is sometimes considered a weed. It is a long-lived species and it can form a dense and dark green lawn by issuing many long underground rhizomes. The species does not tolerate acidic soils, it tolerates heat and drought, but it prefers cool climates.
