  1. 100% Renovation of Lawns
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Lawn renovation involves restoring a deteriorated turfgrass area to an improved condition. Depending on the condition of the turf, this process can be accomplished without establishing a new lawn. Lawn renovation is time-consuming and expensive and should not be performed unless steps are taken to correct the underlying cause of turf deterioration. Included in this publication is information on problems that cause turf to deteriorate and suggested programs for revitalizing turfgrass areas."

  2. 83% Aeration of Turfgrass Areas
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Mechanical aeration provides an excellent, and probably the only, means of correcting or alleviating soil compaction which may be quite serious on many lawn areas. Compaction occurs primarily in the surface area of the lawn. A compacted layer as thin as 1/4 to 1/2 inch can greatly impede water infiltration, nutrient penetration, and gaseous exchange between the soil and the atmosphere. Compaction of this type in the surface layer of soil can be corrected or reduced by the use of suitable aerating equipment."

  3. 73% Lawn Management Through the Seasons
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "This publication serves as a calendar guide for turf management practices and when to look for pests that can damage turf. Be aware that this guide is based on environmental conditions that occur in a typical growing season. During years in which severe drought, heat, or cold occur for extended periods or at unusual times during the season, some management practices should be delayed until more favorable conditions return."

  4. 73% Moss in the Lawn
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Moss is one of the most persistent and annoying weeds that occurs in home lawns. Basically, it is an opportunistic plant that will grow where turfgrasses are thin and weak. Moss does not persist in stands of dense, vigorously-growing turf."

  7. 55% Weed Management in Turf
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "The simplest definition of a weed is a plant that grows where it is not wanted. Creeping bentgrass, a turfgrass used on golf courses, is often considered a weed because it is unwanted in Kentucky bluegrass lawns. Weeds are undesirable because they disrupt turf uniformity and compete with desirable grass species for moisture, light, and nutrients. Some weeds are harmful to people because they attract bees, cause skin irritation, or cause poisoning if ingested."

  8. 41% Horse Facilities 1: Horse Stall Design [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "The stall is the basic functional unit of a horse stable or shelter. A simple backyard pleasure horse stall may at first appear different than a stall in a full-feature boarding operation, but they both provide a suitable environment for the horse and handler. Safety for handlers and horses should be a primary consideration in stall design. Comfort for the horse is very important, as is convenience for the handler in performing chores associated with good horse care. This six-page publication provides an overview of some basic stall features for a typical 1,000-pound horse. "

  9. 35% Disease Management in Turf
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Disease in turfgrasses, as in other plants, develops from an interaction among a susceptible plant, a disease-producing organism (pathogen), and an environment favorable for disease development. Susceptible grasses and pathogens (usually fungi) are present in all lawns. In most cases, the pathogens exist in a dormant or saprophytic (feeding on dead or decaying substances) state and do not attack living plants. Diseases occur when environmental conditions (weather, management, and / or site conditions) become favorable for the build up of pathogen populations and / or cause an increase in the susceptibility of the plant. When this happens, turfgrass loss can occur."
