One of the native landscaping options is the use of native turf, a blend of low-growing native grasses that provide a lawn-like appearance. This investigation was conducted to explore visual qualities and growth parameters between native grasses and their mixtures compared to commercial mixture turf. The field experiment was set out in a randomized complete design with four replicates. We used two native monoculture accessions, perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L. ‘Yarand’) and (Lolium perenne L. ‘Shadegan’), Native low- variety Mixture (NM1): consisting 50% Lolium multiflurom ‘Shadegan’‚ 50% Festuca spp. ‘Shadegan’, Native high-variety Mixture (NM2): consisting 55% Lolium perenne L. ‘Yarand’‚ 35% Lolium perenne L. ‘Shadegan’‚ 5% Lolium multiflurom ‘Shadegan’ and 5% Festuca spp. ‘Shadegan’ in compared to one commercial turf. It can be concluded that, there was significant difference among the turf grass types in all measured traits including genetic color, establishment rate, smoothness, uniformity, weed suppression, frost tolerance, leaf width, plant height and clipping weight. The visual quality measurements indicated the superiority of Lolium perenne L. ‘Shadegan’ over other native monoculture and polyculture and it is able to compete with the commercial turf. This native species was aesthetically pleasing, slow growing, require less maintenance and mowing. Lolium perenne L. ‘Yarand’ had a statistically lowest score for visual appeal than the other turf types. This research suggests that the use of native grass species of Lolium perenne L. ‘Shadegan’ is worth investigating for performance of the native landscape.
