A grass is a plant with narrow leaves growing from the base. A common type of grass used to cover ground in places such as lawns and parks. Grass obtains water from its roots in the ground. Grass is usually pigmented with a “green” color.
Grasses are known to be particularly effective in combating soil erosion. Grasses are also hardy plants that can survive in difficult conditions. Grasses disrupt the speed of rainwater runoff, they also cancel the impact of raindrops, and thus avoid the formation of a hard earth’s crust on the surface of the soil.
