Abstract/Contents:"A lawn home demonstration study in Madison, Wisconsin began in 2007 and different grass species have been maintained with different mowing heights and application rates of nitrogen to the present day. The composition of these lawns has naturally diverged from what was initially planted, shedding light on the ecology of lawns in response to climate and management. A better understanding the ecology of lawns can be used to optimize lawn functions and services in urban landscapes. Our study examined biomass rates, general soil properties, stable isotopic analyses, and plant and microbial diversity to gain a better understanding of how these different treatments influence the ecology of a lawn. Data was collected during the 2021 and 2022 field seasons after 14 years of consistent maintenance with no herbicides. In addition to differences in plant species cover and biomass, there were significant differences in the soil properties associated with the species and management decisions. In this presentation, we focus on long-term nutrient budget analyses and plant diversity exemplified by this study. The information produced by this study could provide information to homeowners and other lawn caretakers in Southern Wisconsin about how long-term maintenance practices shape nutritionally efficient, aesthetic, and environmentally sound turfgrass stands."
