Introduction

This publication is written for lawn care professionals, golf course superintendents, or anyone with a lawn. Its emphasis is on soil management, species diversity, and cultural practices that enhance turf growth and reduce pests and diseases by reducing turf stress. It also looks at mixed species and wildflower lawns as low maintenance alternatives to pure grass lawns.
