Why Turfgrass?

Turfgrass is the single most frequently used landscape plant in the United States; yet many people do not understand the importance real grass has on our environment, our health, and recreation activity.

The Virginia Turfgrass Foundation (VTF) has dedicated the last 30 years to supporting the much-needed research of grasses throughout the state of Virginia. We have millions of acres of turfgrass within Virginia on home lawns, golf courses, athletic fields, parks, commercial landscapes, roadsides, and sod farms. Understanding how these areas impact our quality of life, environment, recreational opportunities, and enhance our property values is a first step to understanding the true benefits of turfgrass and why we continue to fund research.
