Piedmont Landscape Association

Service Providers: Lawn & Turf Services

Turfgrass is widely used in the residential and commercial communities, as well as throughout the sports world. While turfgrass can be aesthetically pleasing, it also serves many useful purposes. When turf is used in the residential setting, it adds to the aesthetic value of the estate, while also helping to stop erosion on sloped embankments and providing a safe surface for children to play on. When used in the commercial setting, turfgrass enhances the overall appeal of the property, as well as being a less expensive alternative to a mature landscape installation.

Turfgrass specialists are individuals who are well versed in installing and maintaining a quality turfgrass area, as well as being knowledgeable in IPM (Integrated Pest Management). Turfgrass specialists should abide by all environmental regulations to help minimize the potential of chemical and fertilizer runoff into our streams and rivers, thus helping to reduce the dangerous eutrophication that is taking place in the Chesapeake Bay. When choosing a turfgrass specialists ensure that they are certified by the state of Virginia and hold a current Commercial Applicators License; this will help you to know that you are hiring a professional who has completed a pesticide applicators course and has been informed of the proper protocol and procedure for applying chemicals to your landscape.
