“Although the roots of turf grass generally aren’t as deep as the roots of prairie plants, they have a higher plant density which affects infiltration and decreases water runoff and increases percolation”. Dr. John Stier, Horticulture Professor University of Wisconsin (Madison June 2007)

“An extremely important function of turf grasses is soil improvement through organic matter additions derived from the turnover of foods and other plant tissues. ” Dr James B Beard, Professor Emetrus Texas A&M University, Council of Agricultural Science and Technology

“Turf grass plays an important part in controlling our climate.
