Guide to Bentgrass
Bentgrass is a cool season grass. Bentgrass has fine blades, and is a very low growing grass that can be cut as low as 1/4 of an inch. It’s also considered a very high maintenance type of grass that requires frequent watering and mowing and other care. Creeping bentgrass is commonly used on putting greens. Colonial bentgrass can be kept a little bit taller and would be a better choice for a lawn.
Mow Bentgrass between 1/4 to 1 inch.
