Turfgrasses are one of the best multi-use groundcovers for home, community
and commercial use, and they can be kept healthy and vigorous with lower
amounts of fertilizer and water than are typically used. Learn how to assess your
lawn's need for fertilization and normal turfgrass water requirements, so you can
customize the management of your lawn.
