Abstract/Contents:Turfgrasses are grown on many types of substrates which form a matrix (a rootzone) that is characterized by specific physical, chemical and biological properties. Rootzones not only affect the quality of turf produced, but also affect its durability, persistence and the level of maintenance required. Physical properties of rootzones include texture, porosity, structure and bulk density. Organic matter is another component of the turfgrass rootzone which contributes significantly to the physical and chemical properties of the rootzone. Soil microbes have a major impact on the plants nutrition.
