Fact of the Day: American Lawn

When colonists first started to come to America, it didn't take them much time to notice that the grass was a bit different than it was in Europe. One reason is that it didn't nourish their livestock very well. So in time, a lot of it was replaced with seeds from Europe.

I knew wheat wasn't native to North America, but didn't know about the grass.
