The Grass Block is the main landcover block for most biomes and the only block that can spawn Sheep, Pigs, Cows and Chickens. It is a Dirt block with a grassy "tuft" on top. Grass will disappear off it when it is away from sunlight. Grass Blocks will be eaten by Sheep, turning them into Dirt. When a player right-clicks a Grass Block with Bone Meal, Tall Grass, Poppies and Dandelions may grow. Grass will slowly spread to surrounding dirt blocks. Mycelium will spread onto grass blocks, however.

How to obtain

  • Mine with a Silk Touch-enchanted anything


  • Anything enchanted with Silk Touch will mine a Grass Block with the grass on it, not just a Shovel.
  • Grass Blocks used to have the Grass texture on all six sides.
  • Snow does not inhibit the spread of Grass.
  • The Grass Block was the old icon for Minecraft on a taskbar before 1.6 and the new launcher, when it was changed to a Crafting Table. It is still the desktop icon for both Minecraft launchers.
  • Grass takes a fraction of a second longer to mine than Dirt.
  • When you right click a grass block using a hoe,it will turn into farmland.If the farmland isn't place around a water source,it will turn into dirt,not grass block.
