A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :

Weed control is done by spot-treating unwanted vegetation. Insect control is done on plant material when the threshold of aesthetic value is jeopardized. Insect control on turf has a preventative plan. Disease control on the golf course greens and natural turf athletic fields also has a preventative plan. Turf is fertilized using slow release and combination products. Isolated plant material is fertilized at point of installation. Soil samples are collected on an annual basis. New plants are on a fertilization plan for the first few years. New varieties of turfgrass and plants less susceptible to insects and disease are installed, along with drought tolerant species. Insects are monitored yearly.
