For efficient turfgrass management it is imperative to have an understanding of the fundamentals of turfgrass growth and management. This book presents the fundamental concepts, tools and techniques of turfgrass management in an easy to understand style to the home lawn growers, amateur gardeners, professional landscape architects, sports turf managers, turfgrass nursery developers, horticulturists and students of turfgrass science. The book can serve as a basic guide to all who are involved in turfgrass infrastructure planning, designing and maintenance.



The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.

Grass is the forgiveness of nature - her constant benediction. Forests decay, harvests perish, flowers vanish, but grass is immortal.

Grass is the cheapest plant to install and the most expensive to maintain.

Sedges have edges, and rushes are round, grasses are hollow. What have you found?

Fertilizer does no good in a heap, but a little spread around works miracles all over.

By means of water, we give life to everything.

Bhupendra Singh is presently raising turfgrasses at Delhi Golf Club, New Delhi, India as Dy. Manager, Golf Course. He had his first affair with Agriculture in the year 2003 when he enrolled in College of Agriculture, G.B.Pant University of Agriculture & Technology, Pantnagar, Uttarakhand.

In the year 2007 he graduated and was introduced to the fascinating world of ‘Golf & Grasses’ at DLF Golf & Country Club, Gurugram, where he began growing turfgrass. Soon he decided to grow it well and took it as a profession! His passion for profession led him to Raffles Golf & Country Club, Singapore and then to London where he learned how grass grows in foreign land. During his decade long career he was primarily involved in turfgrass management, golf course construction projects & golf event management.

His turfgrass understanding was enriched with an on ground turfgrass maintenance experience, experimentation and extensive reading. He also had an opportunity of learning turfgrass management from veterans of turfgrass trade from India & abroad. As his understanding with turfgrasses got refined it translated into several articles pertaining to golf & turfgrass management that he had published in the past decade.
