Abstract/Contents:"Intensely maintained turfgrass landscapes have some potential for loss of fertilizer N. Lower maintenance mixed species vegetation have been proposed as alternative landscapes for reducing off site N losses. We compared N losses between a St. Augustinegrass lawn and a mixed-species landscape designed for efficient resource utilization by the Florida Yards and Neighborhoods program (FYN). A blended granular fertilizer was applied at a rate of 300 and 150 kg N/ha/yr on the turfgrass and mixed-species, respectively. During the 12-month study, one minor (<0.2 cm) runoff event occurred and N losses were insignificant. Annual N leaching losses were significantly greater on the mixed-species landscape, resulting in 4.80 g N m2 compared to 0.41 g N m2 for the St. Augustinegrass."
