A-LIST grasses are scientifically tested at tier one research institutions to ensure a higher quality turfgrass lawn with lower inputs. Research trials look at reducing all inputs to ensure an A-LIST grass variety will perform at its bests when conditions are the worst. With many areas of the country facing restrictions ranging from water to reduced chemical and nutrient applications, the need for improved varieties to withstand more extreme conditions is crucial. The advances in turfgrass breeding varieties have produced turfgrasses varieties that can maintain a darker lawn longer at the same time being more sustainable.
