In general, the more even and clear the runway, the better. Grass runways work well as landing strips for smaller planes carrying a few passengers or as an addition to a cement or asphalt runway, where they can be used by general aviation or serve as emergency runways. Of course asphalt and concrete runways work best, because they ensure a more stable takeoff, landing and taxiing. The surface of the runway is also important in case of an emergency landing (e.g. with a part of or without the landing gear), when the even surface allows the plane to glide without rapidly losing speed in case it plows into a soft surface.
