New Website and Blog for Purdue Turfgrass Program

Since last fall, we have been working on revising our turf website and creating a new blog that could be used to deliver our Turf Tips eNewsletter. Among our goals for the development of the website were to 1) answer the most commonly asked questions by clientele and contain commonly needed information, 2) allow easy access to information, 3) attract clientele with an attractive website and new website technologies including social media (Blog, RSS feeds, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube videos), and 4) reflect the quality of the turfgrass science program at Purdue University. The goal is that these new tools will help increase traffic to the website and improve our ability to communicate with our clientele. An additional benefit is that the new social media tools will allow us to remain engaged with our alumni and improve undergraduate student recruitment. We hope that you enjoy our new website and blog.

The grasses should be provided with the essential nutrients since these cannot be provided by the soil in all seasons of the year. Therefore, you are required to apply proper fertilisers as per its requirements in different seasons.This is one of the ways of maintaining the health of your lawn and Turf grass .

Artificial grass is becoming more prevalent, especially in parts of the country with arid climates and water scarcity. To many, a Artificial Grass is an outrage, a crime against nature. For others, it's a way of life including water restrictions, low maintenance, and no mowing.
