What type of grass do I have?







I bought a house earlier this year and would like to know what sort of lawn I have. I live in Tasmania.


There are currently a lot of dead patches  in my lawn, so I would also appreciate any advice on how to repair the lawn and look after it in the future.


Thank you for your help!

Re: What type of grass do I have?

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @cehenry. It's great to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about lawn care.

If the rest of the lawn is in a similar condition, there doesn't appear to be much left. You could consider improving the soil by aerating and adding additional topsoil and then re-seeding or removing what's there and re-turfing. Here are some helpful guides: How to aerate your lawn, How to grow grass from seed and How to lay turf.


It's a bit hard to tell what the lawn type is; it could just be a selection of thin-bladed grass used for infilling areas. Could also be couch or fesque.


Regarding looking after a lawn, I'm sure you'll find this guide useful: How to take care of your lawn.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
