Guy Behind the Turf : Andy Aldrich

turf manager, turf care, omaha turf, landscaping

How many years have you been in the turf management industry?

My professional background consists 10 years as a Golf Course Assistant Superintendent and the last four years as a Superintendent. I have been in the turf industry for 18 years.

What is the most rewarding part of what you do?

Knowing that my experience and knowledge can create high quality turf for people to enjoy.

Does something specific set you apart from others in Turf Manager roles?

Growing up with a farming background, I have always worked by doing more with less. I use this same approach in taking care of turf.

Why is turf management important to you?

It’s important to me because I care about the impact we have on our environment. I am able to use proper nutrition and water to provide client’s with healthy and good quality turf without over usage that can cause harm to the environment.

How does your process of taking care of client spaces differ from others in the industry?

I do my research. I always make sure I’m using the right product at the right time.

What do you enjoy most about working with Kinghorn Gardens?

The friendly environment. Everyone cares a lot about the entire team and helping each other.

Feel free to share a little look into your home life and hobbies:
