An experiment to asses how water use changes in four warm-season grasses under a range of mowing heights is underway at the University of Western Australia. Plots were planted at the end of September 2009 and plots have been mown at either 10mm, 25mm and 50mm. Observations and measurements are ongoing with results expected in 2011. Photos taken at the site in Perth during winter has shown that Village Green is the stand out when it comes to winter colour.
