Figure 1.1. Turf types. Sports turfs are cultured intensively to provide playable surfaces; lawn turfs serve primarily a decorative function; and utility turfs are established primarily for soil stabilization.
Figure 1.2. Utility turf. Turfgrass along roadsides and airport runways generally require low inputs but play an important role in absorbing toxic emissions from vehicles and reducing dust.
Figure 1.3. Lawn turf. A well-maintained lawn can provide several benefits including improving curb appeal and reducing surrounding air temperatures.
Figure 1.4. Sports turf. Sports fields require the highest cultural inputs as the playability of these fields must withstand intense traffic and reduce the potential for player injuries.
Figure 1.5. Golf turf. Golf courses are unique in that they often have many different requirements for playing surfaces. Turfgrass maintained on golf courses may require little inputs like those found in the roughs or may require the highest cultural inputs of all turfgrasses (e.g., putting greens).
