Star Turf Farm Observations
Lallement and the entire Star Turf Farms team are extending a warm invitation to anyone who is interested in this new turfgrass variety. “We invite you to be part of this day, where you can witness firsthand our commitment to cultivating top-quality fumigated turfgrass right here in South Florida. Our journey with Celebration has been a testament to success, and we believe that the Celebration Hybrid will follow suit, if not exceed our expectations.”
Lallement said Star Turf Farm firmly believes this variety has a place in the turfgrass market after several successful projects using Celebration Hybrid this year.
“Our customers who’ve gotten Celebration Hybrid this summer have been thrilled with its performance and its minimal maintenance requirements,” Lallement said. “Everyone will like that it has a darker green color, requires less mowing and is more dense than regular Celebration but is still part of the Celebration family that has been such a key variety to the turfgrass industry for years.”
