These articles were written by Jim Hermann, aka The Old Guy with the Ponytail. Jim developed an extensive knowledge of all things green over a lifetime of working in the lawncare industry.

"My interest in turf management started in the early 80’s when I worked at a thoroughbred training facility constructing a 5/8 mile turf racetrack. I was responsible for the care of that track so I attended Rutgers continuing education classes to learn more about turf management .
