Cultural Management of Turfgrass

Cultural management of turfgrasses include mowing, fertilization, irrigation, cultivation, and pest control. Development of a specific turfgrass cultural system requires good judgment, based on sound agronomic principles. We utilize an integrated cultural system approach that is based on climate, soil, labor inputs, types of equipment, size of budget, and the capabilities of our company.

The desired quality of turfgrass surface maintained for your lawn is achieved through proper use of cultural practices. The micro-environment of the turfgrass plant can be modified to ensure the best possible growing conditions. The composition of the turfgrass community can be maintained or altered by the types of cultural practices employed.

A turfgrass cultural system is developed through the integration of various cultural principles and practice with the objective of achieving a specified level of turfgrass quality and appearance. Of major importance is the role that turfgrass cultural practices play in your system on integrated pest management. These practices are constantly monitored and adjusted, not only for their direct effect on turf quality, but also on their potential prevention of invasion of turfgrass pest populations. The cultural practices of an integrated pest management program are essential for maintaining your lawn system at the highest quality while being environmentally sound.
