CSS grid-row

The grid-row property is used to define the row start and end position of a grid item in grid layout, to place the item at desired position with specified number of rows (spaces/heights). For example:

HTML with CSS Code
<!DOCTYPE html>
      .container {display: grid; gap: 4px; background-color: peru; color: whitesmoke;
         grid-template-columns: auto auto auto;}
      .container > div {background-color: maroon; padding: 10px; text-align: center;}
      #a {grid-row: 1 / 4;}
      #b {grid-row: 1 / 3;}

   <div class="container">
      <div id="a">1</div>
      <div id="b">2</div>

From above example, the following CSS code:

#a {grid-row: 1 / 4;}
#b {grid-row: 1 / 3;}

can also be written as:

#a {grid-row: 1 / span 3;}
#b {grid-row: 1 / span 2;}

Note - The grid as the value of display property, is used to make an element as a block level grid container.

Note - The gap property is used to define the gap between rows and columns in grid layout.

Note - The grid-template-columns is used to define the number of columns to create in grid layout.
