I can answer questions about biological issues, "organic" turf concepts, turf varieties in zones 5,6,7 (depending on date of zone map); basically for Piedmont North Carolina and similar zones' some experience in sandy type soils in eastern NC, mostly with Piedmont clays. Raised in Ohio, where I started my career, I have a good memory of lawns and landscapes from up north also.
My experience began in 1958 as a groundskeeper on a thirty acre hospital campus. In 1971, I started my own business focused on delivering landscapes organically and soon discovered the benefits of compost (BioDynamic)
