Lush green grass makes for a beautiful lawn, but there's no much more to grass than what you see in your backyard. For instance, did you know that diet staples like wheat, oats, rice, millet and even corn are part of the grass family? Another surprising grass is bamboo, which is used to make everything from furniture to flooring.
