FlightTurf® Testimonials

"I've been working with FlightTurf® for many years and have encountered no better product to save mowing costs and deter wildlife."

-Brian O'Neill, President, Weeds, Inc.


We found the FLIGHTTURF® to spread like wildfire.  We seeded in early fall and within a couple months it had completely filled in.  It over-wintered well and looked great the next spring. the big benefit is that it eliminates the  mowing and weed-wacking expense from the o&m budget, which ends up being a sizable cost when factored over 25 years.

-Richard Deutschmann P.E., Ameresco



“You made a believer out of me!”          

-Robert Quinn, Northeast Philadelphia Airport Maintenance Superintendent



"I visited PNE in the summer of 2012, with record temperatures and drought conditions. The FlightTurf® I viewed on the airside and landside of PNE was green, healthy and free of invasives. Turf normally becomes dormant when these environmental conditions persist for a long period of time. Dormancy includes browning of the blades and an increase of invasive species. FlightTurf® did not exhibit any of those negative attributes.”

-Deborah Cahill, ASLA, Landscape Architect with the Philadelphia Department of Public Property



"We Love Your Product"

-Tadd Varney, Foreman of Facilities and Maintenance, Chicago Rockford International Airport


"Conventional turf would have added about $3,000 annually to our mowing contract for the islands in our new parking lot.  It is my hope and estimation that we can reduce this annual amount to $500 with FlightTurf®."

-Matthew Zinke, Facilities/Maintenance Manager, Chicago Rockford International Airport


“I’ve seen great progress with FlightTurf® in our Right-of-Way, and it looks very promising.  We are planning to expand the conversion program to other sites.”
