Abstract/Contents:Discusses the role and importance of roots to turfgrass. Explains that turfgrass can provide a buffer between pesticides and watersheds and that tall fescue and Kentucky bluegrass are better at denitrification than other forms of vegetation. States that sod is a "good steward of the land" that increases soil organic matter.
