PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – Holganix, a manufacturer of sustainable bio-nutritional turf, flower and tree products, announced that Total Lawn Care (TLC) of Indianapolis was the winner of its Roots for You competition. With a 13-inch turf-root, it was no surprise that Total Lawn Care took home the prize.

Holganix set out to discover some of the deepest, strongest and healthiest turf-root systems in America, and in doing so created its Roots for You competition. As the winner, Total Lawn Care received a $500 cash prize, in addition to a $500 cash donation made in its name to PLANET (Professional Landcare Network).

According to Dr. Neidermyer, director of soil and plant sciences at Holganix, having a strong and deep root system is important for your lawn because it directly correlates to the overall health of the turf. Having deep and strong roots mean the plants can better absorb moisture and nutrients, creating a healthier turf that is more resistant to droughts and other turf-related problems, naturally.
