Is regular grass you see in British gardens wheatgrass ? And if not, whats the official name ? Spelt grass ? Barley grass ?
And from a gardening perspective, how can i replace all the regular grass in my garden with wheatgrass just so I have a wheatgrass garden.
Obviously I would juice it instead of eating it straight .

I don't know much about British gardens, but here in the US a lot of the lawns are rye grass. My "lawn" unfortunately is prairie grass with lots of dandelions (I think they are pretty), a lot of Canadian thistles and other stuff that drives my neighbors crazy.

It is NOT Wheat Grass and No you can't seed Wheat Grass as a Lawn. Usually Lawns are reseedable or evergreen. Wheat Grass is for a Season. You will Not die if you eat the Grass in your Lawn..Ann Wigmore would eat it when she could not get her hands on Wheat Grass. I don't think it was large amounts.
Wheat is a Crop, the seeds are planted and the Grass is allowed to Seed and the Seeds are Harvested and made into Flour...Wheat Flour and Bleached Flour.
We just omit all that and juice the short Grass for All of its neutrients and RAWonderful things.

Some google searches suggest it can be juiced and is nutritionally similar to wheatgrass.
Looks like 'bentgrass' though after more googling.
Anyway, Ill juice some, its free and theres plenty around.
