According to the most recent Pennsylvania turfgrass survey, 2 million acres of turfgrass are maintained in the Commonwealth and approximately 1.4 billion dollars are spent annually on turfgrass establishment and maintenance. To help meet the demands of this large and growing industry, the turfgrass extension program provides services for individuals who make their living managing lawns, golf courses, athletic fields, parks, and grounds. The Professional Turfgrass Management page provides information and links of interest to lawn care professionals; landscape contractors; golf course superintendents; athletic field managers; grounds maintenance supervisors; and representatives of the turfgrass seed, chemical, and equipment industries.
