Sustainable Describes the New-Age Lawn
It’s sort of ironic to consider that “green” thinking doesn’t mean a lush, green lawn when using old-school techniques for watering. That’s where the new best practices of Turf Feeding Systems comes into play. Using Turf Feeding fertigation systems, the water delivered to plant areas—lawns and other landscaping—is precisely measured and includes fertilizers in the water, making it the most effective way to apply nutrients while irrigating at exactly the right times and amounts.
Wasting water is an ecologist’s nightmare.
Plus it can be expensive to overwater using old-fashioned garden hoses. Even the labor costs of having dry fertilizer applied are increasing non-stop.
Michael Chaplinsky, founder and president of Turf Feeding Systems, spends his days meeting with groundskeepers, maintenance crews and government agencies seeking a solution to the high cost of watering and fertilizing the landscaping in their care. Turf Feeding Systems uses Growth Products, a specialty fertilizer line that manufactures high-quality liquid fertilizer that can be injected in the Turf Feeding irrigation system. “The beauty in this application is that the water amounts uses are precise, eliminating overwatering,” explains Chaplinsky. Plus the application of fertilizer in the water rather than using dry fertilizer, makes for an even application, eliminating waste and over-fertilizing.
Called “fertigation,” there’s no system to compete with the advantages of Turf Feeding Systems. That’s why cities, park districts and highway departments are including purchase of Turf Feeding Systems in their 2009 budgets.
