There are three types of Bent Grass: the Colonial, Creeping and Velvet. Each retains particular qualities relating to climate, salt tolerance, depth of color, and texture. Bent grass is a cool season lawn grass. Bent can be planted from seeds or sod and provides a beautiful golf like turf grass lawn in Northern areas. Bents requires high amounts of lawn care & maintenance. Creeping bent grass is a native of Europe and parts of Asia. It is a cool season grass requiring cool, humid environments. This grass forms a dense mat by creeping stolons and has a shallow root system with long slender leaves. Creeping bent grass is the most popular and most planted of the Bents. It is used extensively in lawns, golf courses, athletic fields for the creeping, dense growth, beautiful coloration and short mowing tolerance. It is used primarily on golf putting greens because of the denseness and mowing qualities.
