No matter the project, from golf course construction and renovation, to perfect sod, to a green roof, BrettYoung has the seed to help you achieve your goals.
MANAGE HEAT AND DROUGHT
BrettYoung is the only Turfgrass Water Conservation Alliance (TWCA) Class A member in Canada, and we’ve introduced drought tolerant (DT) varieties proven to perform in many different markets in Canada. The new varieties of DT bluegrasses don’t just look good – they can stay green longer, with less water than most standard varieties. On golf course rough areas in more moderate climates, consider over-seeding with a DT tall fescue. Reducing irrigation in these areas can also reduce your energy costs, labour and wear-and-tear on equipment.
REDUCE RELIANCE ON POOR-QUALITY IRRIGATION WATER
A DT variety can help protect soil structure in areas with poor-quality irrigation water. You’ll minimize the amount of bicarbonates, sodium, salts and other minerals that may be affecting soil structure and nutrient availability. Water less with TWCA to help minimize irrigation impact on your rootzones.
Seed is our passion, and it was the reason our founders first started the company in 1934. Since then, we’ve led the industry in the development of high-quality, specialized varieties designed to perform on golf courses, sportsfields, landscapes and home lawns across Canada and around the world. Changing weather is a top concern for our customers, so we’ve partnered with the Turfgrass Water Conservation Alliance (TWCA) as a Class A member. We’re offering turfgrass varieties that have been rigorously tested to meet the most stringent criteria of water usage and conservation methods.
