Studying Grass to Save Gas

Posted: July 22, 2010

Longwood Gardens and Penn State's Turfgrass Program recently teamed-up to study several grasses and grass mixtures for use in reduced mowing situations. The project was initiated by Mr. Shawn Kister, Grounds Division Leader at Longwood Gardens (Penn State Turfgrass Science/Agronomy, class of 1995), as a means of reducing mowing and gasoline costs, yet still having an aesthetically-pleasing stand of grass in some of Longwood's reduced maintenance areas.
