The great advantage of pearl grass lies in its extremely low maintenance. Literally you do not have to trim it for a few years! The leaves are in round shape. Great for customer who would like to have grasses turfed in the garden but with a very low maintenance in mind.
Pearl grass looks like cow grass but they have shorter, rounder and thicker leaves. Instead of the grass blade that stands up, pearl grass grows sideways and lie flat against the ground.
Cow Grass Three-Petalled (Axonopus Compressus)
Its leaves are short and wide, greenish & feeling soft. Comparing to both the carpet grass and pearl grass, the strength of cos grass lies in its “robustness”. It is a very hardy plant and can thrive much better under stringent conditions compared to both the carpet and pearl grass. The disadvantage is not as “pretty” as the other types of grasses. In addition, it requires very high maintenance of trimming it as it grows the fastest among the grasses mentioned in this article.
The carpet grass leaves are more dense, much smaller and in emerald green color compared to both the pearl grass and cow grass.
The beauty of carpet grasses are for their fine and dense leaves which give you the sensual feeling of that cool, spongy feeling as if you are stepping on a very soft carpet. However, compare to the pearl grass, the carpet grasses require higher maintenance with an interval for every 3 to 4 weeks for the aesthetic and health reason. The carpet grasses are ideal for clients who like to do maintenance themselves or have a budget to engage a gardener’s service to trim the grasses frequently.
Both the Japanese carpet grass (Zoysia japonica) and Serangoon carpet grass (Zoysia serangoon) look alike except for the Japanese carpet grass leaves are of lighter green, softer, more fine and dense. Besides, the growth rate is not as fast as the Serangoon carpet grass but it still needs to be trimmed albeit not as frequent. Due to its high aesthetics value and lower maintenance nature among the carpet grasses, the Japanese carpet grass is the most expensive among the other types of grasses being mentioned in this article.
