Best Maintenance Practices

In the menu to the left you will find links to PDF BMPs for select turf varieties. These best maintenance practices are guidelines for keeping each cultivar healthy and thriving in a landsacpe. We strongly encourage using soil test analysis and local extention agents to keep your turf looking its best.

These guidelines have been developed for the professional turf manager. If you are a homeowner, we recommend visiting our homeowner section and clicking on the "Maintenance" link to view our guides for homeowners. These guides are broadly written because of the large range of climates and soil types across the zones where each grass will grow. Be sure to modify these guidelines based on your location, soil, sunlight, and other factors. If you have questions about this guide email us at
