All grass makes seed. BTW, it stresses a lawn less to be mowed
more often rather than less often [although my neighbor, who's
wife has him on a 'get out of the house' project, does overdo it
a bit with his daily grooming :)] When you mow less often, the
grass shades itself out and the total plant density goes down.
