My Holiday Lawn™ Maintains Quality Under Traffic and Infrequent Mowing

Excerpt:

"My Holiday Lawn™ can produce a very high quality turf with infrequent mowing and can withstand traffic." This was the conclusion of a recent study performed at the University of Wisconsin, Madison under the direction of Doug Soldat, Ph.D., and Nick Bero, M.S.

The My Holiday Lawn study area was established in the spring of 2016 at the O.J. Noer Turfgrass Facility, and was maintained similarly to a home lawn. The research-ers utilized a split-plot design and randomly assigned 4 mowing treatments within each block: mown weekly, mown every other week, mown monthly, and mown on holidays (Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day). The researchers randomly assigned traffic and no traffic treatments to half of each block in a strip, and applied wear by driving a Brinkman traffic simulator (Cockerham and Brinkman, 1989)....click image to read full article.
