Abstract/Contents:States that "turfgrass is a biological system, subject to weather stresses and pest challenges, so [one] must always be prepared that the loss of a turfgrass stand is just around the corner. Knowing the necessary steps to establish and renovate turf can save...time and money [when bringing] a site back to life." Includes a list of herbicides commonly used in renovating turf. Lists "ten steps to establish a new turfgrass area: 1) Soil sampling and testing; 2) Controlling persistent weeds; 3) Rough grading; 4)Liming; 5) Basic fertilizing; 6) Amending and modifying the soil; 7) Performing finish grading; 8) Applying starter fertilizer; 9) Planting; [and] 10) Mulching when seeding." Advises that "depending on the condition of the turf, one or all of these steps may be necessary, but the order is critical for success." Details each step and concludes that "properly performing each provides the most favorable growing conditions for desired turfgrass species to help [the] site achieve and maintain a healthy turf stand."
