How to grow soft rush grass
Soft Rush Grass Loves Sun Light
Soft rush grass needs to be in a place with full, bright sunlight. It's also essential that the area is well-drained and has consistent water. To grow soft rush grass, you must ensure the soil is moist enough for the plant. The best method of watering is using a soaker hose or drip system.
