It's also essential that the area is well-drained and has consistent water. To grow soft rush grass, you need to ensure that the soil is moist enough for the plant.

You will also need to fertilize your soft rush grass regularly. Fertilizing regularly keeps the plant healthy and strong while increasing its vigor. Organic fertilizer such as liquid fish emulsion should be used at least twice per week during summer months and three times per week during winter.
