The grasses may seem very small but it plays a big role while providing comfort to the other trees. The surface of the grasses on the ground keeps the soil cool and maintains the temperature so that trees can live well. Mostly, during summer, the soil becomes hotter and the trees become dry. This is the grasses who keep the soil temperature moderate for sake of the trees’ health. At the same time, it also adds good looks to your lawn and garden.

The thickness of this grass spreads out on the garden land and makes it looks complete.
