Grass Varieties

Mixing grass varieties can improve resistance to pests.  Well, duh.  Monocultures consistently perform worse than mixed ecosystems.  A huge patch of food always attracts pests and diseases.  Mixed ecosystems make it harder for those to spread and multiply.  If your lawn consists of only one plant, it will get eaten.  If it consists of many, even eating all of one thing will leave many other things.
