Turf Best Management Practices


Mankato Area Public Schools has developed a "Turf Best Management Practices" guide to assist the district grounds department and staff in providing well groomed and safe sites for students and the community. This management plan has also been developed to help the district reduce the amount of hazardous chemicals used to maintain weeds the turf areas of the district. Below you will find the guide which outlines the different levels and types of turf/grounds that can be found in the district and how our department then maintains and cares for those areas.
